From the Inside Flap
of wellness and satisfaction has never been as ubiquitous in our culture as it is now. Images of happy people stare out at us from magazine pages and television screens; they are successful and busy, hurrying from the office to the opera, eating healthfully and acting responsibly. We are a nation of achievers but, as Dr. Edward Hallowell makes clear in <b>Connect</b>, what sustains us--emotionally, psychologically, physically--is connectedness, the feeling that we are part of something that matters, something larger than ourselves that gives life its meaning, direction, and purpose. <br> <br>Hallowell examines the real life most of us lead--overwhelmed, harried, pressured--and outlines the steps we can take to connect ourselves to the people and things that matter to us. He elevates the simplest forms of communication, understanding, and self-knowledge as examples of the human moment: the basis for the bridges we build to one another

Too bad he does not finish his own analysis...
One of the best books on the importance of being a part to things bigger than yourself.Reviewed in the United States on 30 May 2019
Soulful...real deal..common sense ideas..musings..stories. Ned seems to be a kind and gentle soul. I keep this lovely book on my bookshelf and go back to it again and again. I just pick any chapter and feel great...very inspiring and easy-peazy to read.. I think that connections w/people, places and things are vital to our happiness and health. It restores my faith in humanity and hope in this troubled world we live in. It's always timely .I think it's a Masterwork. It never grows and tired on me...stood the test of time. I highly recommend it. I bought a copy to 2 of my physicians. Perhaps I'll meet him someday and just thank him for this little gem.
