Feeling for the Edges of Ourselves - talking empowerment, neuroscience and societal change with Adam Hamdy
Adam Hamdy is a novelist, screenwriter, advisor-to-ministers (not that they necessarily listen, but that's their loss) and soon-to-be author of a book on the neuroscience of empowerment - how we can do it and why it's essential. Our conversation ranged from Phytoncides (yes, but trust me, it's fascinating), to the neuroscience of love, and - as ever, what we can actually do, to make a difference in the world around us.

Adam Hamdy is a British author and screenwriter who works with studios and production companies on both sides of the Atlantic. Prior to beginning his writing career, he worked as a strategy consultant advising global businesses, and is now the author of the Pendulum Trilogy, an epic series of conspiracy thriller novels. Publishers Weekly calls the first book, Pendulum, a “fast-paced, cinematic thriller.” Adam holds degrees in law and philosophy from the University of Oxford and University of London, respectively.
Adam Hamdy: "Freefall": Eight months after confronting Pendulum, John Wallace is losing himself in a dangerous warzone in a misguided attempt at penance for what he has done. But an assassination attempt makes Wallace realise that he has once again been targeted for death. This time, Wallace is prepared and, tracking down his would-be assassin, he discovers a link to his nemesis, Pendulum.The link is the missing piece of a puzzle that has tormented FBI Agent Christine Ash ever since they confronted Pendulum, but with no Bureau support she has been unable to pursue her case. Wallace's proof breaks it, but also exposes them both to terrible danger. Confronted by a powerful, hidden enemy, Ash and Wallace must overcome impossible odds if they are to avert a dangerous challenge to the networked world that threatens to destroy our way of life.
