Great Regulars: The Science Delusion (a dig at

Dawkins's 2006 atheist tract The God Delusion) is a systematic summary of Sheldrake's thought. It questions what he describes as the 10 core beliefs of orthodox materialist science. So he asks: Is nature mechanical? Are the laws of nature fixed? Are minds confined to brains? And so on. The book rambles a bit, but, on the whole, it's a brisk and entertaining read that may not convince you of all his arguments but should convince you he is not mad.
