Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Addressing the drought of authentic communication in the world, Martinet urges readers to talk to strangers and call instead of instant messaging. Acknowledging the anxiety inherent in having serious, face-to-face conversations, Martinet guides readers through initiating such encounters and nurturing existing friendships. She stresses inviting people over to one’s home as the key to creating lasting and fulfilling interpersonal bonds. Martinet’s direction is helpful not only for those whose social life is lacking but also for others concerned with the abundance of online-only communication.” Library Journal
“How is it that you receive dozens of personal e-mails and texts every day but have nothing do come Saturday night? Author and narrator Martinet gets to the bottom of the paradox that while the world is more connected than ever, many people are still isolated. The book presents practical suggestions for brushing up social skills, becoming more confident and seeking out fulfilling friendships. Martinet’s ability to read with warmth and authority makes listeners feel they are receiving good advice from a trusted and wise confidante. Her delivery conveys care and concern, and she is excellent at addressing her audience’s concerns and alleviating anxieties. This is one listening experience that may just change your life.” Publishers Weekly
