Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
"This mechanism holds the possibility of explaining and understanding much of how people suddenly change direction in life, and some of the strangest religious and spiritual behavior ever described among human beings. Perhaps most important, understanding it can give us insight into the formation of social bonds, the development of gangs and groups, and allow us to make more informed choices as individuals, as a society, and as a culture, how we want our own groups to develop." Charles Swencionis, Ph.D., Albert Einstein College of Medicine from the Foreword
Top customer reviews
The book is written in language that is not technical and it can be easily understood by anyone likely to be generally interested in the subject matter.
It is a good read, and anyone who is in the business of changing how others think or perceive reality (or who is subject to the work of others in this field--politicians, advertisers...)will find it insightful.
