'Quantum Soup is a gourmet preparation of philosophical snaps and snails, sharks' fins and puppy dogs' tails to tickle the sophisticated palate and provoke happy, healthful belly laughs. Confucius say: "Number One good recipe!"'

- Joseph Campbell

'Like sunlight, Chungliang Al Huang's delicate mix of wisdom and humor comes in discrete energy packets (quanta) but gives continuous pleasure and nourishment.'

- Fritjof Capra

- Virginia Satir

'Quantum Soup is an elegant, wise and playful expression of Taoist and Zen Buddhist sensibilities in a Western setting - a philosophical entertainment with a collection of anecdotes, aphorisms and koan-like ruminations, all served up in appetizer portions.'

- Los Angeles Times

'Take the pungence of hot and sour, the homeyness of chicken, the excitement of gespacho, the refreshment of vichyssoise - flamboyantly seasoned with loving humor and eternality and an empty bowl - ahhhh - Quantum Soup!'

- Ram Dass
