I can't recommend this book enough. Salzberg clearly outlines the path that leads to a greater sense of connection to others.

Availability: Special Order
Published: Atria Books - June 5th, 2012

An absolutely fascinating book! The Bond is a science based refutation of the common notion that we are competitive beings by nature. Filled with the latest scientific knowledge and beautifully written, McTaggart has written a book that is not only illuminating but important. The implications of The Bond are profound and wide ranging; we need to take her message to heart. A positive future will not be created based on separation, competition and conflict. McTaggart gives a road map to our birthright - deep connection with all of life. This is a piece of fine scholarship. ~ Reviewed by Chris Morrow
