It has the ability to change the world and to end the foolishness of war
If combined with conscious capitalism, the structures of business will benefit the total community and correct the errors and divisions created by pyramid command systems.
The book was recommended to me by my son, Bill Withers (William The Younger), who has my name and a similar lust for life.

CITATION: Zak, P. J. (2013). The moral molecule: the new science of what makes us good or evil. London: Corgi Books.
Reviewer: Dr W. P. Palmer.
The book being reviewed is the 2012 paperback edition. This book is about the chemical called Oxytocin, which Zak calls the ‘moral molecule’; it is 300 pages long. There are eight chapters containing five small diagrams, with an introduction notes, acknowledgements and an index.
Reading this book certainly gives much food for thought.
