Susan Pinker, The Village Effect: How face-to-face contact can make us healthier, happier, and smarter

Susan Pinker, The Village Effect: How face-to-face contact can make us healthier, happier, and smarter
August 1, 2015 Maryanne
Maryanne Comaroto interviews Susan Pinker

We are so wired in technologically, why are many of us so lonely? We are hard-wired to connect to other human beings, and face-to-face contact matters: tight bonds of friendship and love heal us, help children learn, extend our lives and make us happy. Looser in-person bonds matter, too, combining with our close relationships to form a personal “village.”
Marrying the findings of the new field of social neuroscience with gripping human stories, Susan explores the impact of face-to-face contact from cradle to grave, challenging many of our assumptions and showing us new ways to thrive.
