Availability: Ready to download

We are the ultimate social animal. Our intimate relationships are the most important thing in our life, often, more important than life itself--insofar as we would die for those we love. But at a time of unprecedented social and technological change, the path to the intimacy that we seek has been confused, leaving us more connected and yet more alone and uncertain than ever We are the ultimate social animal. Our intimate relationships are the most important thing in our life, often, more important than life itself--insofar as we would die for those we love. But at a time of unprecedented social and technological change, the path to the intimacy that we seek has been confused, leaving us more connected and yet more alone and uncertain than ever before. Even if you have already chosen a destination, even if you have already set sail, this book should help you to navigate the storms and doldrums that lie ahead, and, more importantly, to question the very purpose and value of your journey. A tour-de-force: erudite, funny, and even wise. --Prof Anthony Synott, author of The Body Social and Re-Thinking Men

    I couldn't go to sleep until I finished this, and the next thing I knew the sun was leaking over the hill! Burton's work is always so well-researched and includes cultural traditions on which I have never been previously educated. I'll be honest: there were plenty of things about this book that made me very sad for humanity, but that doesn't stop me from being glad to have read it.

    Lots of Information....and Opinion There is lots of good information in this book, but also a lot of opinions held by the author. About half way through the book I tired of his opinions. As the author, I suppose that's his right, but it's not why I read a book. I felt that the author went into too much detail in some chapters and not enough in others. I was expecting less of the history of the subject and more of the practical, current philosophies. That's not what you get here.

That's not what you get here. The author has definitely done his research, but to me, this read more like a textbook than modern essays. I would only recommend this book if you're researching the subjects.
