Description - The Continuum Concept, by Jean Liedloff
After spending two and a half years deep in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians, Jean Leidloff found that her experiences demolished her Western preconception of how we should live. What she discovered about their way of life led her to alter her view of what constitutes our basic human nature and to develop a radical new theory on how we should bring up our children. In The Continuum Concept she shows how we have lost much of our natural well-being through Western materialism, and suggests practical ways to regain it, for our children and for ourselves. 'I don't know whether the world can be saved by a book, but if it could be, this might just be the book' John Holy, author of How Children Learn 'Deserves to be read by Western parents and psychologists concerned with restoring self-reliance and well-being. There are remarkable insights here' The New York Times Book Review 'If I had to choose one book to give to parents-to-be, here it is' George Leonard, author of Education and Ecstasy
