"How many of us take touch for granted? This book explores the many
facets of touch and recognizes its unique power to heal and give
meaning to our lives. In times like these, touch may be the key to
bridge that which divides us. Touch has the capacity to heal our
planet. Thank you, Bill Dorman, for this soulful reminder that
touch is essential to our wholeness."
