    1. When the Hubble Telescope photos like the one below began hitting the newsstands, I remember thinking, "These are the first true icons of the 21st century." I think mathematical cosmologist and evangelist of wonder and mystery Brian Swimme would agree, and this book, like its predecessor The Universe Is a Green Dragon, sets out to explain just what relevance these new icons, and their theoretical counterparts in relativity and quantum theory, have for our worldviews and ways of being-in-the-worl [...]

    2. I used to stare for as long as I could at a cowboy boot on the cowboy print wallpaper in my room, and repeat the phrase "I'm me, I'm a person" until a tingle ran up my spine. It was the specific physical reaction that I was looking for, not a religious experience. Sometimes it would come and sometimes it wouldn't, but when it would I was able to see myself outside of my body, walking around my house and interacting with my parents and sister.Now I have no idea if this is what Brian Swimme means [...]

    3. If you like philosophical discussions, this is a good read. Its fifteen chapters each have a new concept about how humans relate to the Universe around us.The implication of having a "hidden heart" is religous. The author doesn't promote any dogma, but does lead the reader to contemplate whether there is a hidden heart.

    4. This book is worth reading but Brian Swimme short changes us. The author is a fantastic speaker when interviewed but he held back in this book. He is capable of telling us much more about The Hidden Heart of the cosmos. Brian is a person with a message the world needs to hear. I do not regret reading the book, but he has more to offer.

    5. Swimme has made astrophysics accessible to the non-scientific community. He brings out the inherent beauty heretofore hidden within theories that could only explained mathematically, and so is a translator for the most of us

    6. I read this book during a Religions of the West course. I enjoyed it as it was a short and easy read and a good introduction into Cosmology.
