Review

Sheldrake powerfully reminds us that science must be pursued with an open mind. - Robert Jackson, former UK Minister for Science

This is a terrific, engrossing book that throws open the shutters to reveal our world to be so much more intriguing and profound than could ever have been supposed. - Dr James Le Fanu, author of The Rise and Fall of Modern Medicine

The author, a biologist, takes issue with the idea that science already understands the nature of reality - and in doing so, frees up the spirit of enquiry. - The Times

There is something rather odd about the current state of science. For Rupert Sheldrake, [it is] facing a 'credibility crunch' on many fronts. He presents this challenging argument by identifying 'ten core beliefs that most scientists take for granted.' He then interrogates each in turn by reformulating it, in the spirit of radical scepticism, as a question. This Socratic method of inquiry proves surprisingly illuminating. A serious mind-expanding book. - James le Fanu, The Spectator

Certainly we need to accept the limitations of much current dogma and keep our minds open as we reasonably can. Sheldrake may help us do so through this well-written, challenging and always interesting book. - Crispin Tickell, Financial Times

Rupert Sheldrake does science, humanity and the world at large a considerable favour. - Colin Tudge, The Inde
