Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye opening must read This is one of the most insightful books I have read in the last few years, and a must read for anyone interested in how we humans are going to move forward in a way towards solving our problems. Eisler introduces a way of looking at human behavior in terms of a "dominator" model, typical of much of our history, and a "partnership" model which is hardly ever mentioned. It will challenge your thoughts about how we got where we are and what we need to do next.
