William R. ISBN-13: 978-1572305052. -George E. Vaillant, MD, Harvard Medical School. Although many people spend years struggling to fix personal problems, some people undergo sudden, dramatic, and nearly instantaneous change. This book tells their stories and identifies the core features of these transformational changes.

University of New Mexico psychologists William Miller and Janet C'de Baca were longtime scholars and teachers of traditional approaches to self-improvement when they became intrigued by a different sort of change that was sometimes experienced by people they g often described as "a bolt from the blue" or "seeing the light. Many recounted their epiphanies and sudden insights in exquisite detail years after the fleeting event, describing such enduring results as a greater sense of meaning in life, a shift in values or goals, or freedom from unhealthy behaviors.

These tales reflect two types of quantum change sudden insights and epiphanies as well as their characteristics

These tales reflect two types of quantum change sudden insights and epiphanies as well as their characteristics. The authors successfully assert that as a person is guided to a new place of authentic truth within himself or herself, peacefulness and inner strength ensue, and a positive shift in core values results. The basic premise of this earlier Quantum study by Miller and C’ de Baca is that the sort of unprecedented and unexpected experience which often leads to a radical shift in the consciousness and therefore in the behavior of certain individuals also parallels the unpredictable behavior of subatomic particles.

The persisting positive changes, particularly in attitudes, mood, and life satisfaction, occasioned by psilocybin appear similar in kind and breadth to the enduring changes reported in case studies of individuals who have had ng mystical-or insightful-types of experiences (Miller and C' de Baca, 2001).

One instant the electron is in its natural orbit, the next instant it occupies an expanded orbit. This instantaneous transition within the subatomic environment is a metaphor that describes the sudden psychological transformation that was.

This is one of the most important books I have ever read. I wouldn't have said this even a decade ago, but the older I get, the more I value and invite the seemingly inexplicable changes that can and do happen as a result of being open to experiences that defy our rational minds. Since this book was first published I have had my own extremely positive "quantum change" - an experience so out of the norm and unexpected, which was more "real" than reality. This experience became the foundation for the rest of my life. Read this book with an open mind, and with an awareness, as the authors state, that "there are many ways to know truth."

This isn't a book which will guide you step-by-step to achieving an epiphany or mystical experience all your own, which some may find disappointing. But then, such intense insights only seem to come when we link into the great vastness of the One (by whatever Name you want to call it) ... and there is no guide book that can lead us directly to the spot where that will happen because it's personal for each person. This randomness has led to these transformations being mostly dismissed by the Western World as either delusions (science) or presumption (religion), so it's a nice (quantum!) change to see a straightforward discussion on the topic. The most any guide can do is help us achieve a position where we're open to the experience, and that is the true benefit of this book. The examples in Quantum Change help you see that the potential of a link does exist, and that others have found their way to it. Opening yourself up to that possibility can be a changing point for you, too!

A good and easy read on the subject of mystical experiences by scientists. Many anecdotal stories of peoples true experience.

About a year and a half ago, I was asked by author Cynthia Larson to read and review her book titled “Quantum Jumps”, which I did (Amazon, November 10, 2013). The basic premise of this earlier “Quantum” study by Miller and C’ de Baca is that the sort of unprecedented and unexpected experience which often leads to a radical shift in the consciousness and therefore in the behavior of certain individuals also parallels the unpredictable behavior of subatomic particles.

“Quantum Change”, written in 2001, may or may not have influenced Larson in her 2013 discussion. As it happens, I passed “Quantum Jumps” on to a friend in Atlanta, where it remains, so I have no immediate access to check on references or acknowledgements in that book. However, in another example of the type of synchronicity which Larson describes so vividly, very shortly after my move here, I heard a mention of “Quantum Change” that so intrigued me, I felt I had to read it. It is thoroughly rewarding.

The authors detail numerous case studies describing two particular types of experience that fit their category of “quantum change” – an experience that is “vivid, surprising, benevolent, and (producing) enduring personal transformation”. These are “Insightful” and “Mystical”. They also make an important point that not all enduring change is “quantum”, especially in the “insightful” category; just because it doesn’t happen in a sudden burst does not negate the importance of insight. Likewise, not all “mystical” experiences produce the sort of major transformation of life direction they are describing. However, I found this book totally delightful because it reinforces for me a strong and growing conviction in the validity of “Cosmic Consciousness” or “Noosphere” (a concept I’ve long cherished from the writing of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin), by which, as Cynthia Larson and others have discussed, we can become “plugged in” to the deepest reality of our universe for enduring blessing and enlightenment.

Great book would have liked more info on awareness and how to help people to be more present, but all in all it was good.

Excellent book. Easy to read and it presents some fascinating material. I'm writing a paper for grad class on the subject.

Unrelated to Religions, these stories of sudden transformations will make you stop reading and think about things. You will buy more copies and give away to certain friends. It is that kind of book.
I have not finished reading the book, but it is what I expected it would be: factual, detailed, with some third-person stories to illustrate points.
The book is not meant to be fun reading, after all, and I am finding it interesting, as I did Dr. Miller's lecture.
