He lives in New York City.
"Mind-blowing . . . [There is] a very small amount of people we've interviewed who seem to be able to see the entire world in all of its complexity, in one view . . . . Neil might have his arms around perhaps as much of the big picture as one can get their arms around."-Dax Shepard, Armchair Expert Podcast
"Lucid and accessible . . . This slender work offers a compelling retreat into the exhilarating and oddly reassuring world of complexity."--Washington Post

A stimulating read."--Kirkus"This is an extraordinary book that will change the way you understand yourself and the universe. It will empower you.

It is a fascinating and thought-provoking journey that filled me with wonder."--Mark Epstein, MD, author of The Zen of Therapy: Uncovering a Hidden Kindness in Life"This timely book invites us on a transformative journey into what is normally hidden from view--the complex, complementary interactions that inform science, art, and religion, and illuminate our existence as conscious and creative beings, inseparable from the totality of life."--Ian A. Baker, PhD, National Geographic Explorer for the Millennium and author of The Heart of the World"Notes on Complexity gives us a new way to see life and understand our existence."--Daniel C. Matt, author of God & the Big Bang and translator of The Zohar: Pritzker Edition"Neil Theise takes us through the 'shimmering webs' of complexity--from the womb to the windy mountain rooftops of the world, so that we may come home to the everywhere and the everyone."--Maureen Seaberg, author of Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: The Astonishing New Science of the Senses
