    The essence of holism - in a nutshell!

    You couldn¿t ask for a better guide to clarity about that often-confusing term, holism, than this wonderful book. John Diamond traces the origins of the concept and the word and shares his original, inspiring insights into how to view the world holistically. He explores the difficulties we have with achieving that view and uses wonderful metaphors to help us find it ourselves.
