About the Author:

Nicholas A. Christakis, MD, PhD, is a professor at Harvard University with joint appointments in the Departments of Health Care Policy, Sociology, and Medicine, and in 2009 was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. James H. Fowler, PhD, is an associate professor at the University of California, San Diego, in the Department of Political Science and The Center for Wireless and Population Health Systems, and was named one of the "most inspiring scientists" by the San Diego Science Festival. Christakis and Fowler's research has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, Today, and The Colbert Report, and on the front pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, and USA Today.

From AudioFile:

The authors examine the importance of human connections and the influence of people's networks on how things happen in their lives. This interesting compilation of research covers topics such as how networks can help people solve problems and how many people need to be stopped and looking up on a sidewalk before an uninvolved passerby will do likewise. Nicholas Christakis brings a slightly academic tone to his narration, giving a bit of gravitas to what some may consider to be simple common sense: Happiness spreads through networks; happy people attract other happy people. While Christakis's delivery could benefit from more variation in tone, his steady pace makes this lengthy volume engaging. M.R. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
