Please see below for highlights of the praise this book has been receiving:
“The Unity-Based Family is a must read for anyone who wants to raise intellectually, emotionally, morally, and spiritually healthy children. As a developmental psychologist, I was particularly attracted to, and edified by, the chapters concerning the dynamics of personal development and parenting. I wish I had had the knowledge and wisdom imparted in this book when I started my family forty years ago! Now, I will settle for using it to help my undergraduate students of developmental psychology understand how to create family unity and why that unity is both the foundation of health and the means of healing for families.”
—Rhett Diessner, Professor of Psychology, Lewis-Clark State College
“Once again, in his characteristic style, Dr H. B. Danesh has achieved a lucidity and beauty in his writing that makes difficult concepts not only easy but also a delight to digest. In reading almost every paragraph, one gets a sense of being nourished and challenged at the same time. I found this book to be both an enlightening and aesthetic experience. As a psychologist and educator who has systematically studied the development of life purpose for more than fifteen years, I have found frameworks in this book that I have yet to find articulated in the same way anywhere else.”
—Jenni Menon Mariano, Associate Professor, University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee
“The Unity-Based Family is an inspiring book, demonstrating that unity, once translated into action, will meet most of the personal, interpersonal, and collective challenges faced by humanity today. It deals with the concept of unity in the context of the family as the fundamental unit of society, but this book is not only about the family: it is about our life and how to substantially improve its quality.”
—Julio Savi, MD, Author of A Nest on the Highest Branch: Reflections on Human Success, Prosperity and Happiness
“Dr Danesh is a master at breaking down a complex phenomenon into highly understandable elements. In this book, he brings a wonderful clarity to the challenging issues of marriage and family and, in doing so, raises our vision to the beauty and potential of human life.”
—Brian Kirsh, MD, FRCP (C), Department of Psychiatry, University Health Network, Toronto
