A critical review of the book can be found here:  Critique of “Quantum Enigma:Physic encounters Consciousness” Authors: Michael Nauenberg (Submitted on 14 May 2007 (v1), last revised 15 May 2007 (this version, v2))

Abstract: The central claim that understanding quantum mechanics requires a conscious observer, which is made made by B. Rosenblum and F. Kuttner in their book “Quantum Enigma: Physics encounters consciousnes”, is shown to be based on various misunderstandings and distortions of the foundations of quantum mechanics.
