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 can 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!
