Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from each other or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system?

In her groundbreaking book "Molecules of Emotion, " Candace Pert provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries.

Her pioneering research on how the chemicals inside our bodies form a dynamic information network, linking mind and body, is not only provocative, it is revolutionary. By establishing the biomolecular basis for our emotions and explaining these new scientific developments in a clear and accessible way, Pert empowers us to understand ourselves, our feelings, and the connection between our minds and our bodies -- body-minds -- in ways we could never possibly have imagined before.

"Molecules of Emotion" is a landmark work, full of insight and wisdom and possessing that rare power to change the way we see the world and ourselves.

Industry Reviews

Lynn Harris New York Daily News Pick up the coolest, smartest, hardest-core mind-body book I've seen in a while. Dean Ornish, M.D. author of Eat More, Weigh Less Molecules of Emotion is a highly inspiring story of the search for the biochemical links between consciousness, mind, and body that also weaves in Pert's deeply personal search for truth. Highly recommended! Christiane Northrup, M.D. author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom Reading Molecules of Emotion filled me with molecules associated with joy, inspiration, and hope. Caroline Myss, Ph.D. author of Why People Don't Heal and How They Can Candace B. Pert...has managed to take the study of the emotional connection to the body...and present this information in not only an understandable manner, but an enjoyable one.
