based on your recommendation, I bought the book after looking at it while at the bookstore. it looks very interesting... I'm just to the intro, but he made an interesting observation that loneliness is more lethal than cigarettes. looking forward to reading the rest. thanks for the recommendation!

just based on the refernced idea mentioned in the introduction of this book that loneliness is more lethal than cigarettes, i will not read this book. c'mon, people! that is so over the top!

one thread with 4 responses does not in any way equal the numerous, countless even, times that intuitive eating has been brought up/plugged/promoted/pushed on us.

I most definitely concur with the 4:14 poster. How does one book recommendation even compare?

Also, basing one's opinion of an entire book (or anything else for that matter) on one casual remark by a poster comes across as reactionary rather than a thoughtful rebuttal of the effects of lonliless on quality and length of life. Considering the numerous studies that have come out on the effects of social isolation and how damaging it is - I would not have trouble believing that a smoker with a big loving network of friends and family has a far happier and longer life than a lonely, isolated non-smoker.

I am determined to live as long as possible and am doing everything in my power to ensure that I will be active and healthy well into my dotage - mainly because so many of my older relatives don't :-(. So I will most definitely have my local library hold a copy and see what all the growing fuss is about.
