Author: John T Cacioppo; William Patrick
Publisher: New York : W.W. Norton & Company, 2008
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
A sense of isolation or social rejection disrupts not only our thinking abilities and will power but also our immune systems, and can be as damaging as obesity or smoking. A blend of biological and social science, this book demonstrates that, as individuals and as a society, we have everything to gain, and everything to lose, in how well or how poorly we manage our need for social bonds
