From Science to God offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness - how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation

Mostly a very good read, corresponding with and complementing my own experiences of awakening, but I found the final chapter quite disappointing, as if his heart wasn't in it or he didn't know how otherwise to round off the book. I also find it amusing/ironic how he writes 'against' materialism but also mentions his career achievements quite a bit (and the 'About the Author' section even lists the companies for which he's done consultant work, as if that has anything to do with his credibility as a spiritual guide/visionary). I'm glad I read the book, I recommend it, and look forward to reading more of his work.

Eccellent book for both: folks that are more spiritually oriented and not understanding science AND those that are more scientifically minded and perhaps sceptical of religion. In a simple and thorough way Peter Russell shows that consciousness may indeed be primary to both perspectives and actually allow for the acceptance that both are valid. I have gifted this book to many of my science minded friends and colleagues. I highly recommend after reading this book, check out peterussell.com for more on consciousness, spirituality, meditation and much more.

what a book! as someone who left organized religion as a child, i have been searching for something else for a long time. I have considered myself an agnostic for years now but recently have been extremely interested in consciousness and through meditation I have found some answers. This book truly is a wonderful read. The main questions raised in this book as well as some of the answers given are the foundation to which humans will evolve. Simply outstanding from a man who's qualified to write about such things. Thanks you Peter Russell. You've inspired me with this book.

I was writing about the experiences of the historical Jesus and asking "What did He see?" "Who was He speaking with?" "Is there a God?" "Can we trust the messengers?" Evolution vs. Creationists... are there any right answers, or can Evolution and God exist naturally in our Universe?

I am searching for an explanation of consciousness, God, and soul. I found much in this book that leads me further along the path. I have to agree with other critics here that the book did not quite go far enough. However, science has not gone far enough to comprehend what 'thinking' is. How, from inert dust and mud did consciousness arise? From where do we have a sense of ourselves?

"Out of the cradle, on to dry land
Here it is standing, atoms with consciousness, matter with curiosity," (Feynman)

Peter Russell touches on these questions but not with the depth I was hoping for. Yet, how can we expect him to do this for us when all mankind still has not come far enough to 'knowing'? This is a great little book but serves more as an introduction to what questions we should be asking and what answers we might expect in the future. My next book to read is:

"Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel" by Michio Kaku.

I think these two books will work well when read together. I am glad that I read "From Science to God" first, and I recommend that you do the same, knowing with certainty that this little book will only serve to whet your appetite for more.

This is an excellent book arguing for the view that a universal consciousness underlies all the manifestations we take to be reality, including "natural" phenomena, our own personal experience, and the various concepts of God(s).

In making the argument, Russell accurately draws on a wide range of ideas and insights from physics, psychology, Western philosophy, and worldwide spiritual traditions, and thus effectively and beautifully ties many strands of knowledge together. A key part of the argument is to see consciousness and light as two sides of the same coin, and I believe that Russell makes a fairly compelling case for this view.

The book is fairly short and is crafted with great clarity and conciseness, with nice elements of autobiography inserted at appropriate points, and can thus be read quickly and enjoyably (I finished it easily in two days). But, again, Russell has painlessly packed a lot into the book, and his thesis is compelling and fundamentally important, so this is a book worth re-reading, perhaps more than once.

Very highly recommended for anyone with an inclination towards intellectual and (especially) spiritual growth, with just one key caveat: the conciseness of the book means that Russell can't spell everything out in great detail, so the book will work best for readers who are already at least passingly familiar with wide range of ideas which are drawn upon.

Russell does a wonderful job of helping any reader, whether starting their journey from science (as he did) or coming from a faith base looking for more answers, get to the finer points of external consciousness and the role it plays in both.

His writing style is easy to follow- not overly layered with either science or religious dogma, and allows the reader to follow his own journey from a strict scientist, bordering on atheism, to someone who believes in the external nature of consciousness, and the place role that consciousness plays in our existence.

It is easy to say that "God" is in everything...or that our physical reality contains elements of external influence, but Russell makes both points in a sense of unity, that is graceful, poetic, and yet rife with new physics theory.

It is not meant to be the "Theory of Everything"- but rather an introduction to a far wider exploration into the nature of existence.
