Synopsis

'A thought-provoking and worthwhile read' THE TIMES



'A timely, challenging book' GUARDIAN



'[A] rich, intriguing book' NATURE



WE ARE MUCH MORE CONNECTED TO NATURE AND EACH OTHER THAN WE REALISE . . .



- Most of our 37 trillion cells have such a short lifespan that we are essentially made anew every few weeks

- The molecules forming our bodies have been component parts of countless other organisms, from ancient plants to dinosaurs

- The bacteria, fungi and viruses that make up our bodies influence our moods and even manipulate our behaviour

- Every word and every touch we receive from other people transforms the neural networks in our brain and changes our sense of self



THE SELF DELUSION is an explosive, powerful and inspiring book that brings together overwhelming evidence against the illusion we have of ourselves as independent beings - and explains how understanding our many connections may be the key to a better future.
