“No man is an island” - Cautionary tales about the importance of human interaction

Author J.W. Freiberg is an attorney who has practiced law for decades. Before his career in law, he earned a doctorate in social psychology and spent several years as a professor. Because of his background, he became known as “The Psych Lawyer” by many of his colleagues, and over the years he received numerous case referrals that involved clients with serious psychological issues. This intersection of law and social science generated within him an interest in the study of loneliness. In this fascinating book, he shares four compelling stories from his law practice that illustrate the depth of the problem of loneliness among Americans. The main takeaway is that humans crave interaction. And Freiberg encourages us as readers/listeners to nurture our connections to others as best we can since it is vital to our overall health and well-being.
