Loneliness by John Cacioppo & William Patrick

Man is a social animal so loneliness makes us not only sad but also stupid, whether we are solving logical problem or (alas!) trying to seek and make friends. The chapters in Loneliness┬ácan be somewhat disconnected and repetitive, perhaps because written by different authors, but the ideas are easy to follow and interesting. And now I understand why pet owners can have these overly-intense relationships with their pets: that’s right, they are lonely!
