Publisher Description

Celebrated scientists Nicholas Christakis and James Fowler explain the amazing power of social networks and our profound influence on one another's lives.

Your colleague's husband's sister can make you fat, even if you don't know her. A happy neighbor has more impact on your happiness than a happy spouse. These startling revelations of how much we truly influence one another are revealed in the studies of Dr. Christakis and Fowler, which have repeatedly made front-page news nationwide.

In Connected, the authors explain why emotions are contagious, how health behaviors spread, why the rich get richer, even how we find and choose our partners. Intriguing and entertaining, Connected overturns the notion of the individual and provides a revolutionary paradigm-that social networks influence our ideas, emotions, health, relationships, behavior, politics, and much more. It will change the way we think about every aspect of our lives.

Good read, popular subject

This one is a good read. The subjects were supported with data acquired from various experiments which adds interesting insight into the notion of social networks. Sometimes the subject's flow a little too slow, but in general it isa good one

Life Changer

My dissertation professor in Greece recommended this book to me. The book broadened my mind. Before it, I was leaning more to the fact that an individual isn’t effected by their environment heavily, yet after reading it acknowledged how connected we are. By reading how an individual affects others in a social network, it helped me spread positivity and realize how much that can help my own social network.
