Quantum quackery - a book made up of woo woo bullshit

What the Bleep Do We Know!?: Discovering the Endless Possibilities for Altering Your Everyday Reality - William Arntz, Betsy Chasse, Mark Vicente

What a load of crap?

Even if quantum mechanic allows some strange possibilities and weird stuff to happen, it would not follow the will of human being, it is pure bullshit.

Why would universe listen to any individual human, living on a planet in just one of the galaxy, among millions other galaxy.

Who do he think he is? The arrogant of this kind of bullshit, make me think he is very small in other area that make him want to compensate that much for his inadequacy. 

Here is a good article on how to make money on this kind of bullshit.

Worst, they misused interview. 

"David Albert, a philosopher of physics who appears in the film, has accused the filmmakers of selectively editing his interview to make it appear that he endorses the film's thesis that quantum mechanics is linked with consciousness. He says he is "profoundly unsympathetic to attempts at linking quantum mechanics with consciousness." These issues relate to the so-called Quantum mind-body problem."
