From the Inside Flap:

This book is the product of an individual who spent years in virtual silence and who now speaks with confiction; who learned the dignity of being a laborer working with one's hands and now celebrates the joy of taking ideas seriously; who began as a child refugee, and has lived in five countries as a wanderer, who now shows us empowering groundings in the immediate world in which we live. Here is an individual who lost his parents and his brother in the Nazi Holocaust who acts with optimism that we can create a science to give us more benign control over our lives. He sees the idiocies and lingering pain of warfare--following well over 100 million violent deaths in the past century--as a testament to our lack of an effective science of human behavior, and the challenge to do something about it. This book is a step in that direction.
