The Beginning of Infinity by David Deutsch.. It may be almost as madly ambitious to read this book as it was to write it, but the rewards are worth the effort. Quantum living is ever the conundrum, but you will be delighted you did.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"David Deutsch’s “Beginning of Infinity” is a brilliant and exhilarating and profoundly eccentric book. It’s about everything: art, science, philosophy, history, politics, evil, death, the future, infinity, bugs, thumbs, what have you."

The New York Times

"It has been said that while the optimist believes that we live in the best of all worlds, the pessimist knows that we do. David Deutsch's book is profoundly optimistic, but in a way that carefully avoids these extremes."

The Higher Education Times
