I bought a hardback copy of this book when it was first published. It is filled with important information now as it was then. The human condition has not changed significantly. I recommend this book for all parents. It is especially important for c-section babies. It is also important as all of us proceed through life.Was this review helpful?

I read this book with great interest. It is an excellent book with profound implications. While researching for information on psychological wholeness, healing, happiness, and 'affirmation' (see works by Dr. Conrad Baars & Dr. Anna Terruwe) I came across this book. I recommend incorporating the information in this book with information in the books listed below for real 'psychological wholeness.' [Conrad Baars website has further information and more book ideas]Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I enjoyed reading this book called Touching:The Human Significance of the Skin. I had to do an assignment on my career Dermatology and this novel gave me tons of insight. Just flipping through the pages will make your mind soar. It contains tons of info about skin. You should read this novel if you are interested in a career of Dermatology or if you just like to read.
