Self-Interest vs. Altruism in the Global Era presents a new perspective on the challenges currently facing the world. Dr. Laitman shows the reader that the problems of the world are the consequence of humanity’s growing egotism. In that spirit, the book suggests ways to use our egos for society’s benefit, rather than merely for our own self-interest.

The earlier chapters offer a unique understanding of humanity’s existence on this planet and how our collective egoism has influenced the development of our society. By understanding the ego and its origins the reader discovers a new understanding of the global integral existence as the remedy for society’s ills. The final chapters address our current social and political challenges, and explain how we can use our egos to resolve them, rather than continuing the downward cycle that humanity finds itself in.

5 of 5 Where would you rather be? July 20, 2012
Reviewer: Jenny DeRosia from Tampa, FL United States  
In these 150 or so pages, you will not be filled with complaints about the state of this world, statistics of the growing numbers affected by the crisis facing every nation presently, or theories of solutions devised by all of today’s modern economists, physicians, psychologists or physicists. What you will gain is the simple solution to an age old situation that has simply gone amuck in our time. The author has pin pointed the very essence of the state of our world, defined the scientific reason for this state, and provided the systematic, natural and beneficial outcome if certain actions are taken by each individual reading this book. These actions are not just another 12 step program or course in a miracle cure, but an age old scientific method designed and replicated in the very nature of man and all of existence. Read this to be awakened to the perception of where you came from, where you are now and connect to where you would rather be.

5 of 5 Connection Between How We Act & The Global Crisis July 20, 2012
Reviewer: Josia from Israel  
So there is a connection between our purpose for being here and the global crises the world is currently facing. This book describes the connection between all aspects of our lives: "While we have been growing increasingly global, we have also become increasingly self-centered, or as psychologists Jean M. Twenge and Keith Campbell describe it, "increasingly narcissistic." That is the society we have created here and we will need a very serious blueprint to get back on track.

The time has come to understand that and the big message of this incredible book is that we better start figuring out how to change our ways now before it's too late. We must start thinking globally, about the well-being of the entire world, about healing our world.

Laitman presents complex concepts in a friendly way and backed up by modern-day scientific proof so that anyone can understand how to get our world back in harmony - it starts with each one of us. Reading this book is the first step.

5 of 5 A review by Midwest Book Review June 15, 2012
Reviewer: Chaim Ratz from ,  
Stating that society’s future relies on cooperation of people to work together for society, stating that much of society’s degradation in recent decades has been the result of narcissism and greed, Self Interest vs. Altruism is a curious and recommended read for those who believe that optimism in human nature is not entirely lost.
