  • One of the most provocative new books of the year, and, for me, mindblowing

    Michael Pollan
  • Wonderfully rich. . . . Reading this book is an embodied experience; it is yoga for the mind. The Flip is an important book that deserves a broad readership both inside and outside the academy

    Reading Religion
  • [The Flip] will ignite conversations about the limits of science and the potential for dramatic shifts in perspective

    Publishers Weekly
  • [Kripal offers] a genuinely hopeful vision of what we yet could be in the mirror of what we have been

    Deepak Chopra
  • Kripal makes many sympathetic points about the present spiritual state of America. . . . [He] continues to believe that spirituality and science should not contradict each other, and that the Cartesian split between mind and body can be transcended

    New York Times Book Review
  • [His] work will likely become more and more relevant to more and more areas of inquiry as the century unfolds. It may even open up a new space for Americans to reevaluate the personal and cultural narratives they have inherited, and to imagine alternative futures.
