"Professor Floyd turns his academic research on affection into a self-help book for the lay reader. Kory...combines anecdotes, questions for the reader to reflect on, and explanations of the research he conducted.... Thought-provoking." --Publishers Weekly

"A great resource for anyone looking to slow down, put away their smart phones, and start making meaningful connections in their lives. The Loneliness Cure is the perfect guide to gaining the affection we're missing from the people we love." --Mark Feuerstein, star of Royal Pains

"Floyd's eye-opening and realistic approach for connecting with others will find wide appeal." --Library Journal

"In a world of endless tech gadgets that promise to 'connect' us in ever more efficient ways, people today are paradoxically feeling more isolated than ever. The Loneliness Cure is a resource for those looking to slow down, silence their smartphones, and start making--or reclaiming--meaningful connections in their lives." --The New York Journal of Books

"The book clearly conveys the science behind loneliness. It can be a helpful primer for anyone who desires more affection in life or is worried that a friend or family member may be suffering from an affection deficit. Like the best self-help books, The Loneliness Cure convinces readers that 'it pays to reach out for help when you need it' and gives them the confidence and tactics to do so." --Foreword Reviews

"Floyd frequently encourages us to interact with the book...which make this a more engaging read.... I felt well informed and armed with strategies to make real connections.... Floyd leaves readers with reason to feel hopeful about present and future relationships--which, given how bottomless loneliness can feel, is no small task." --Psych Central
