Loneliness is an increasing American epidemic. That's what the research indicates; my own pastoral experience testifies to it as well. Overcoming Loneliness seeks to set the problem in its historical, cultural, and psychological context. Probably a little outdated at this point (written circa 1996). But had a few helpful chapters e.g. the history of the small group movement, how to make connections as a neighbor, the limits of psychiatry to address the problem. This was decent as a quick read.
