Loneliness: Human Nature and the Need for Social Connection

It's too bad the title is sort of a "downer"because this is a really positive, thought provoking book...insight into the many "connections" in our lives and the importance of them...family, friends, team, wards, scout troops, knitting clubs, book clubs, play groups, blogs...life is all about our connections!

  1. man this book really is so good. it explains so much of our motivations for doing things. even if you don't typically feel lonely, you should read this.

  2. Exactly...I see it more as a book for people who want to help others make necessary social connections...and to give validity to time spent making those connections...why family reunions are important...and sitting down to dinner each night with our families.
