Wouldn't it be great if instead of catching a nasty cold, we could catch our friend's good mood, or our colleague's healthy habits?
You don't need to be on the Internet to be connected. We are all part of interconnected networks, whether we're aware of it or not. Everything you think, say and do can be felt by people on the other side of the world. The Contagious Power of Thinking provides astonishing scientific evidence to show how habits, attitudes, emotions and even kindness spread rapidly outwards from person to person through personal contact.
Learn the fascinating facts behind:
how infants feel their mothers' emotions
how more than 25% of your happiness is due to the happiness of your friends
how your brain reads the emotions of others and reproduces the feeling in you
and how your best friend's sister's hairdresser can make you fat!
In this book, David Hamilton explores the amazing implications of this phenomenon and suggests that a small group of committed people really can change the world.
David Hamilton gained a first class honours degree in chemistry, with a specialisation in biological and medicinal chemistry, and a Ph.D. in organic chemistry before going on to be a scientist in the pharmaceutical industry in 1995.
After four years he left and has since worked as a motivational speaker, co-founded an international relief charity, co-organised a 9-day, 24-event festival of peace called Spirit Aid, and worked as a college lecturer in both chemistry and ecology.
He has been featured on TV, BBC radio, and has been the subject of national newspaper articles. He spends most of his time writing, giving talks and leading workshops on the topics of his writing. He lives in Windsor.
'David Hamilton has the unique gift of combining spirituality and science in a simple but powerful way. Everyone must read his work!'
