"Wilber's 'integral vision' offers readers the opportunity to make valuable connections among disparate disciplines and—just maybe—to prepare themselves for a brave new world."—Publishers Weekly
"A soaring tour de force and daring exposition by one of America's most inventive thinkers. Don't quit the search for an integral culture until you have given it a whirl—and take this book with you as a sturdy guide."—Professor Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School
"Ken Wilber is one of the most creative spiritual thinkers alive today, and A Theory of Everything is an accessible taste of his brilliance. Like a masterful conductor, he brings everyone in, finds room for science and spirit, and creates music for the soul."—Rabbi Michael Lerner, author of The Politics of Meaning

The downside for me was writing style. I found Wilbur hard to crack, and it took a month or so of time investment in reading several of his books simultaneously for me to start to get it. Before I got it, I found him complicated and tedious. After I began to understand the general framework, I started finding him a bit repetitive (more in other works than this shorter one). I think this could be a challenging read as an intro course, without either some prior Wilbur or a reasonable grounding in a range of other philosophy/psych reading. I'd recommend either reading Wilbur's History of Everything or maybe "The Essential Wilbur" with this.
Nevertheless, this book is amazing, as is Wilbur, for his ability to synthesize so much information from so many fields of study into something so elegant.
For me, reading this book has sparked a fascination with Wilber's philosophy, and as a brief introduction to his writings, this book left me eager to read Wilber's other books to hopefully obtain a deeper understanding of his integral vision.
