A prime example of how a book doesn't have to be massive to be insightful. In less than 150 pages, Sebastian Junger lays out his thoughts on how an interconnected society is a healthier society. Stories from the past are woven together with statistics from today to make a powerful argument that despite being relatively wealthy and physically healthy, our very disconnected, self reliant society is driving up cases of depression and creating a trap of general unhappiness. Well worth the read!
