Product Details



“Read this book. Then talk about it–in person!–with a friend.” Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human
“Drawing on scores of psychological and sociological studies, [Pinker] suggests that living as our ancestors did, steeped in face-to-face contact and physical proximity, is the key to health, while loneliness is ‘less an exalted existential state than a public health risk.’… Smart readers will take the book out to a park to enjoy in the company of others.” The Boston Globe
“A narrative-rich book…. Pinker doesn’t just describe the ‘big deal,’ as she puts it; she doesn’t hesitate to suggest solutions, starting with her own.” Maclean’s
“Good peers help make centenarians.” Tyler Cowen, The New York Times
“Persuasive.” The Globe and Mail
