Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from one another or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system?

In this groundbreaking audiobook, Candace Pert -- a neuroscientist whose extraordinary career began with her 1972 discovery of the opiate receptor -- provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries.

From explaining the scientific basis of popular wisdom about phenomena like "gut feelings" to making comprehensible recent discoveries in cancer and AIDS research, Molecules of Emotion is an intellectual adventure of the highest order. Yet the journey Pert takes us on is one of personal as well as scientific discovery. Woven into her lucid explanations of the science underlying her work is the remarkable story of how -- faced with personal and professional obstacles -- she has grown as a woman and a mother, and how her personal and spiritual development has led to breakthroughs in her remarkable career.

Molecules of Emotion is a landmark work. Full of insight and wisdom, it is among those rare audiobooks which possess the power to change the way we see the world and ourselves.
