Steve is a real friend of Cygnus and we try to feature all his books when they come out. It’s very rare to encounter an author who is firmly rooted in “the spiritual” but who can speak the language of science. The subtitle here gives us the key to the text: The Roots of Human Cruelty and How Connection Can Heal the World. Connection is the most essential human trait - it determines our behaviour and our level of well-being. Cruelty, on the other hand, is the result of a sense of disconnection. We can measure both social progress and personal development in terms of how far we move along a continuum of connection. Altruism and spirituality are experiences of our fundamental connection and regaining awareness of our connection is the only way by which we can live in harmony.
