Hamilton, Maggie 

After decades of affluence, we're busier than ever, but leaving the house less and less. While we renovate our homes and bodies, and binge on Netflix, Uber Eats, and online shopping, depression and anxiety is soaring. Is it possible that our society's constant need for connectivity is messing with our brains, and alienating us from what's really important? Is this why we're losing our ability to engage meaningfully with our communities, or stay in touch with the natural world? And given that so many of our kids lack one-on-one attention and regular touch, are we raising this new generation to be profoundly lonely?

Right now, many of our relationships at home, at work, and with our friends, are struggling. What are the best ways back to belonging, and what might a more engaged sense of community look like?
Maggie Hamilton, author of What Men Don't Talk AboutWhat's Happening to Our Boys? and What's Happening to Our Girls? explores our growing loneliness with care and rigour, and proposes practical solutions and an uplifting vision to combat the increasing social isolation in our families and communities.
