Publisher's Summary

Is morality universal? Why are men less faithful than women? Why do some businesses succeed while others collapse? If we have a natural impulse to empathise and care for each other, why are there psychopaths? Neuroscientist and economist Paul Zak has spent 10 years researching to answer these questions and discovering the chemical driver of our behaviour. His research has led him from a "vampire" wedding in Devon to the jungle of Papua New Guinea and from the US military to a Buddhist monastery.

Detective story, adventure, and scientific discovery rolled into one, The Moral Molecule is a brilliant read: compulsively entertaining and potentially life-changing.

Fascinating Look at Oxytocin

Brilliant book combining research with philosophy, economics and theology. The advice to give 8 hugs a day is brilliant, though tricky at time of writing this review with a pandemic preventing this...second price of advice, be mindful! All good!
