Social scientist Anthony Biglan offers a focused synthesis of 40 years of research to explain why and how people can improve themselves, their families and society by becoming more "nurturing." He argues that evolution shows humans to be uniquely social and collaborative, and that contemporary inquiries into behavior suggest that people need their world to be more nurturing. Biglan occasionally indulges in jargon, and he reflects an idealism that may regard people and policy makers as unrealistically kind and rational. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends his professional advocacy of a nicer, gentler society to HR managers, business owners, teachers, parents, policy makers and anyone interested in how people function and why caring relationships are the foundation of social change.
