He has lectured on subjects related to quantum physics and consciousness since the 1960s, often under the name Dr. Quantum or Captain Quantum. He is also featured in the documentary about the Dalai Lama entitled Dalai Lama Renaissance.
His book Taking the Quantum Leap: The New Physics for Nonscientists won the National Book Award as science paperback for 1980 from the National Book Foundation. Dr. Wolf’s books have been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Chinese, Korean, Dutch, and Japanese.
