Rocking with the reaper

Pigford, Jayne
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Goldcrest (N/A)
ISBN: 9781911505945


Are we moulded by our genes or experiences?

What makes us think and behave in the ways we do?

Is ‘the way it is’ inevitable or could we create a better world?

Jayne Pigford invites us to join her in an exploration of the human condition; do we, as she experienced on her death-bed, have a loving, peaceful core? Sharing her personal experience of severe illness, close dances with death, childlessness, a repeatedly broken heart and her professional learning from attachment theory, positive psychology and neuroscience, Jayne reveals how we’re ‘wired to connect’ and act kindly.

Amidst the world’s current chaos, with the arrival of the Coronavirus at the end of the book, Jayne argues that connection is our way through to a better place; connection to ourselves, our miraculous world and each other.

Ultimately this book gives us hope for humanity and through Jayne’s own brand of humour, makes a friend of dastardly Death along the way!
