From the Publisher"What’s key here, Bond would have us realize, is that your emotional and social responses to a person are heavily influenced by that person’s emotions, feelings, or body language — and not as much your own feelings or thoughts or opinions. Bond successfully uses both studies and historical examples to illustrate these types of phenomena. The Power of Others is an interesting read."
"Bond renders a worthwhile subject into entertaining, informative reading.”'
- Kirkus Reviews
"In light of recent terrorist attacks ... passages on suicide bombers and lone wolves provide social explanations of these traumatizing events. Recommended for readers curious about the social psychology and human behavior in the face of disasters."
- Library Journal
"Important and compelling. Bond drives home a fact that we all must accept we are never alone. The people in our lives affect every aspect of our behaviour in ways that we are often not consciously aware of."
- David McRaney, bestselling author of You Are Not So Smart
"Accessible, captivating, and fun. Though we think of ourselves as free individuals, our choices are influenced by others and the scary thing is that we don’t realise it."
- William Poundstone, author of Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google?
