Quantum Soup

Fortune Cookies in Crisis, New and enlarged edition

Jessica Kingsley Publishers, Singing Dragon
Peppered with a delicate mix of wisdom and humour, Quantum
is a light-hearted yet informative combination of happy
anecdotes and traditional Chinese sensibilities in a Western setting.
Every mini-essay is accompanied by the author's calligraphy and
illustrations, making this book every bit as appealing now as it was
when originally published. Quantum Soup is a gourmet
preparation of philosophical snaps and snails, sharks' fins and
puppy dogs' tails to tickle the sophisticated palate and provoke
happy, healthful belly laughs.
Quantum Soup is an elegant, wise and playful expression of Taoist and Zen Buddhist sensibilities in a Western setting - a philosophical entertainment with a collection of anecdotes, aphorisms and koan-like ruminations, all served up in appetizer portions. Los Angeles Times
Like sunlight, Chungliang Al Huang's delicate mix of wisdom and humor comes in discrete energy packets (quanta) but gives continuous pleasure and nourishment. Fritjof Capra
Confucius say: 'Number One good recipe!' Joseph Campbell
Take the humor of Buddha, connecting with the universal soul you have Chungliang Al Huang and Quantum Soup! Virginia Satir
Take the pungence of hot and sour, the homeyness of chicken, the excitement of gespacho, the refreshment of vichyssoise - flamboyantly seasoned with loving humor and eternality and an empty bowl - ahhhh - Quantum Soup! Ram Dass
Chungliang Al Huang is the founder of the Living TaoFoundation and the director of the Lan Ting Institute, a cross-culturalstudy and conference centre at the sacred and historic Wu Yi mountainin China.
