We are in crisis because we live a lie. We believe we flourish because we compete and fight – personally, as a nation, and as the dominant species. But we succeed only because we share, we care and we’re fair, as Lynne McTaggart’s latest, profound and life-altering book proves.
The Bond demonstrates that we are in constant relationship with everything and everyone. Pulling together a vast array of cutting edge scientific discovery, McTaggart demonstrates that the idea of ‘us against them’ is one of the most fundamental misconceptions we make.
I was ecstatic to be asked to review Lynne McTaggart’s new book “The Bond” published by Hayhouse, as I thoroughly enjoyed her last book, “The Intention Experiment”.
Upon reading, it came as no surprise that the premise of the book focused on the true relationship of life, contradictory to what we are led to believe.
Reading Lynne’s detailed research (which was once again well-composed, packed with information based on scientific research), was not so much an eye opener but a confirmation of what I had felt for a long time.
By no means is “The Bond” an easy read, just like “The intention experiment”, with 274 pages (hardback), although fifty plus pages was references and index.
The facts presented are copious and complex in many places, although I felt this time that Lynne had tried to give a simpler overview to accommodate all readers, which is fair, but left me as I approached the end of the book feeling bored of the repeated emphasis of examples being expanded upon.
Personally, I would have been quite happy if the last two chapters were shortened or not included at all, as it kind of felt as she was trying too hard to convince the reader – which she didn’t need to.
Harsh as that may sound, I did indeed enjoy what I read. This book is a much needed wake up call in a world that is changing, and I am thankful to Lynne for compiling the in-depth information and raising this topic for those who are still unaware. Also validation for those who have been experiencing or questioning this dichotomy in their being, which this book most certainly does.
There were some areas of analysis that I questioned, but the reference section is comprehensive enough to conduct your own evaluation of a conclusion.
All in all “The Bond” is another very good book by Lynne McTaggart and really worth reading!
