The Lonely Century: How To Reconnect
Even before the pandemic, loneliness was fast becoming a defining characteristic of the 21st century, with more people than ever not just craving intimacy with friends and family, but feeling disconnected from politicians and government and also from their colleagues and employer. 40 percent of office workers globally feel lonely.
