The modern world of technological miracles is one which would have been beyond the imagination of people of two generations ago, but despite the material wealth and relative ease of life today, below the surface it is in some ways sicker than ever before. Violence, vandalism, mental illness and divorce are all increasing, and more and more people feel lost, sad and lonely than ever before. The author of this book argues that the problem is a condition which he calls "the 20th-century blues", and that between a third and a half of the population is suffering from it. In addition to examining some of the insidious effects of modern life, the book offers practical help towards overcoming loneliness, conquering stress and finding new purpose and meaning in life. Dr Coleman is a medical author whose books have been translated into 14 languages. He also writes weekly newspaper columns and provides a "telephone doctor" service.
