Social researcher and speaker Maggie Hamilton takes an intelligent look at how Western culture discourages connecting with others. Though we evolved to be part of a tribe, prosperity and technology have allowed us to become too independent, to stay home and hire others for tasks we used to share with neighbors. Fellow Australian Christopher Brown performs with earnest respect for the author's ideas and a humble sort of vocal confidence. He doesn't miss a phrase as he glides through the richly illustrated chapters, brightening the author's observations and advice. Hamilton's reach and wisdom are extensive as she examines today's workplaces, neighborhoods, families, and schools. Enabled by our ability to buy whatever we need, our growing narcissism and overcontrol of our lives keep us from relaxing and enjoying others.
