An exploration of the new science behind our most underappreciated sense and why we need to harness the power of touch for our health and wellbeing.

Every day, we use our sense of touch to navigate the world. A handshake, a pat on the shoulder, a hug-all essential daily touches that make up our daily lives. In Title TK, Professor Michael Banissy brings together diverse scientific insights from the world's largest study on touch with takeaways on how to enhance your levels of touch for a happier, healthier life. The book explains why touch is essential to our wellbeing, the role it plays in our relationships, friendships, in the bedroom, workplace, in team activities such as sports, and much more.

Banissy's latest research explores:
• Our "touch personalities"
• Touch starvation
• How touch defines our relationships and self-esteem
• The impact of touch on our physical and mental health

This is a fascinating window into one of our most important and basic senses and how to harness its power.
