"Even in this time of mass communication and social media, we remain accessible but not engaged. You still can't snuggle up to an iPhone with much comfort or consolation. In fact, the more we rely on technology to keep us connected, the lonelier we become." —from Never Be Lonely Again
An approach that breaks through isolation and loneliness—and puts readers on a path to true happiness
In our fast-paced world of longer working hours and quick distractions, it's difficult to develop and maintain relationships that soothe the soul.

It was only after a momentous meeting with the Dalai Lama that Love and Carlson began to develop an effective approach that would recalibrate the way they understood relationships. Now with Never Lonely Again, readers will learn how to find the necessary time to maintain friendships, be truly present for a partner, and reach out to people when in need. Pat Love and Jon Carlson tackle the problem of loneliness head on, showing how to develop healthier, more emotionally-satisfying behaviors that will nurture the relationships they have, and make them more open to lasting personal connections.
