I'd been hearing this term "physical intelligence" for a while now, and I have to admit I wasn't sure what it meant. Lobel's book clarified how this idea is both new - and old.

In brief (very brief), she explains how outside influences in the physical world may have an unconscious influence on the decisions we make or how one may react to certain situations. We want to believe only rational thought and complex, conscious decisions factor into the choices we make and the way we react to given scenarios. But Lobel presents verifiable, often repeated experiments to demonstrate the influence of "physical intelligence" has in our lives.

Lobels voice is engaging, and she presents the data in a plain spoken manner that keeps the material moving along as well as relating personal experiences regarding the topic. A good read for someone interested in a new area of psychological study who doesn't want to get bogged down in dry recitations of experiments and field tests.
