It is truly a thought-provoking work written by the British economist Noreena Hertz on the loneliness of our century. […] Noreena Hertz has written a book that puts her finger on something very important, which is high time and which gives birth to thousands of thoughts. And it is an excellent example of how books and literature can also prevent loneliness. Because it is the case that you can exchange good books with thoughts, you can have dialogues with them. Yes, at best you can feel the way books and literature see you – or to turn around a bit on the French philosopher Descartes: I read, ergo I am.
