What an incredible manuscript. You write so clearly and honestly.. I knew the manuscript would be good and that it would be a topic I enjoyed reading about and editing, but it is even better than I expected. It is such a special book that so many people NEED … especially in times like these.

Through sharing his own story and other anecdotes, and a thorough literature review, Joel Ramirez reveals the benefits of close human connection. He explains why strong relationships make life worthwhile, and are our scaffolding when things go wrong.

“Hi Joel, I just wanted to extend my thanks for taking time out yesterday and presenting at our mental health session. It was greatly received and we have already been asked to run it for Malaysia and other territories (and have you back as speaker)! Thanks mate, goes to show that these sessions really do make a difference!”
