359 pages. Hawks, Doves and Other Humans is principally a book about temperament, the constitutional or inherited aspect of personality. It draws on genetic, evolutionary, ecological and other research to construct a simple model of temperament based on three dimensions, simply described as harm avoidance, novelty seeking and reward dependence. The author goes on to show the remarkable parallels that this model finds in Hindu, Chinese and other traditional healing systems. The book intersperses some of this more theoretical material with the author's experiences in psychiatry, counselling and holistic medicine. Numerous case studies also illustrate the author's approach to mind-body healing. Based on the model of temperament and his own experience, Dr Holman offers guidelines for people to improve their health and relationships. The book is also a valuable tool for a wide range of health professionals, providing an understanding of the way that individuals differ in their physical and psychological requirements.
