This book took me a while to finish reading it I can confirm that the book provides some very good examples of extra-dimensionality. If that is your intent for reading this book it was mine , then it can be recommended. However, the reader will need to sort out these examples from other material in the book.

One addition is that the author interleaved a fictional story throughout the book based on an X-files-type genre. The most serious problem with the book is that the author attempts to make theological assertions based on an understanding of extra-dimensional phenomena, and most of these are filled with errors.
Occasionally we find published works in which an author who is an expert in one niche field of study will make claims about another field of study in which he is not knowledgeable. Sadly, this is the case with this book. In reality, the author has an incorrect understanding of God that is not consistent with theology. The problem: This is a serious theological error on the identity of Jesus that dismisses what Jesus claims about Himself and what He did to substantiate it.
It also flies in the face of all serious theological scholarship about Jesus from the last 2, years. The problem: This is a poor example to use, because it is well-established by the overwhelming majority of biblical scholars that this work is a forgery. It is not a gospel, nor written by Thomas, and has been shown to have been written about years later than the time period it claims.

It includes Gnostic thinking consistent with that time period that is at odds with Christian teaching. So I am not able to recommend it. Feb 16, B. I wanted to like it. But, blea! The information is overly simplistic, he relies far too much on 'Flatland' you would be better off reading Flatland in fact , hes repetitive, the 'fiction' story is drivel, and I do not believe he can go more than three pages without mentioning God or Gods.
If you are interested in 4D objects and beings and you have no idea what those things are, then maybe this book would be okay Aug 08, Paul Weiss rated it did not like it Shelves: science , math , physics. A profound disappointment in six easy lessons! Queen Victoria almost certainly would have been amused if she had thought to pick up a copy of Edwin Abbott's inventive story "Flatland" when it was first published in But it's unlikely that she would be amused at the degree to which Pickover has chosen to rehash all of the same ideas - and, not just once, but seeking to dress the same material up as different chapters over and over again.
My goodness, there are only so many ways that one can s A profound disappointment in six easy lessons! My goodness, there are only so many ways that one can say a three dimensional sphere projects as a circle in two dimensions. Therefore, a four dimensional hypershpere projects into three dimensions as a sphere. OK, OK - I got it the first time! It's bad enough that Surfing Through Hyperspace barely rises above plagiarism. But Pickover has tried to tart the presentation up with a bizarre, pretentious narration that is also a simple rip off from Scully and Mulder of X-Files fame!
This silly repetitious presentation borders on insulting to any intelligent reader who, after reading a couple or three chapters, will realize they would have been better off going to the store to buy the original item - Flatland.

Any other material that is beyond Flatland - wormholes, Many Worlds Theory, quantum mechanics and superluminal contact, to name a few examples - are explained more completely and more clearly in any number of other sources. Then Pickover pulled the ultimate cop out - "We leave exploration of these interesting variations as an exercise to the reader.
Surfing Through Hyperspace promised a deeper understanding of higher dimensions but, for me, it was a profound disappointment. Paul Weiss Aug 12, Joe Robson rated it did not like it Shelves: shite. So I wrote a review but had checked "spoilers", but when I went to edit the review just to uncheck it, it deleted my entire review! What the hell, Goodreads!
Anyway, to summarise my deleted review: terrible book, written by an idiot, repeats the same "what if Flatland was in 3D instead of 2D" idea over and over again, Worst excuse for X-Files fanfic I've ever read, in which "Mulder" spends the entire time mansplaining 4D to "Scully" who gets fondled by a 4D being in the end, spoilers "Six Easy Less So I wrote a review but had checked "spoilers", but when I went to edit the review just to uncheck it, it deleted my entire review!

Also the diagrams seem to be drawn in MS Paint. And the author cannot draw a simple stick figure. I hated this book so much. I was so disappointed. If the 4th dimension is going to be populated by guys like Clifford Pickover then leave me in this one please.
Jan 11, David rated it really liked it. The title of the book is a lesson in itself on how to attract your audience. I am attracted by science fiction. I can grasp the subject through storytelling and my own imagination. The author Pickover captured my attention with quotes from the Baha'i Scriptures. I am a Baha'i.

In the Preface: "To consider that after the death of the body the spirit perishes is like imagining that a bird in a cage will be destroyed if the cage is broken, though the bird has nothing to fear from the destruction of the cage Is this a timely topic? National Public Radio posted on Facebook today, January 11, , about the age, shape and size of the Universe. There were nearly 1, comments posted the first 40 minutes. Pickover's Six Easy Lessons covers old thinking, and views I never thought about.
