Johann Hari

Johann Eduard Hari (born 21 January 1979) is a Swiss-British writer and journalist. His journalism has been the subject of accusations of plagiarism, due to numerous cases of him including quotes from other sources as if they were said directly to him; something Hari initially denied but later admitted. He was identified as, and later admitted being, the author of pejorative edits (under an anonymous pseudonym) of his critics' Wikipedia pages. Hari's Orwell Prize, awarded to him in 2008, was officially revoked following charges of plagiarism and he was asked to return it. He has written for a number of publications including The Independent (London) and The Huffington Post and has written books on the topic of the war on drugs, the monarchy, and depression. He also gave a TED talk on the topic of addiction.

Recensie(s)

If you have ever been down, or felt lost, this amazing book will change your life. Do yourself a favour - read it now * Elton John * A brilliant, stimulating, radical take on mental health * Matt Haig * Lost Connections offers a wonderful and incisive analysis of the depression and alienation that are haunting American society * Hillary Rodham Clinton * Wise, probing and deeply generous Hari has produced a book packed with explosive revelations about our epidemic of despair ... I am utterly convinced that the more people read this book, the better off the world will be * Naomi Klein * It's brilliant for anyone wanting a better understanding of mental health * Zoe Ball, Stylist * Coupling diverse personal narratives with an intense investigation into the failings of Western society to better connect us all ... I strongly believe that what Hari has created may be one of the most important texts of recent years. The book gives a voice to those who cannot speak and hands them a megaphone to vibrate the monolithic towers of the antidepressant drug industries. It teaches that through community, through social and natural connection, and through understanding, depression can be tackled via alternative means -- British Journal of General Practice This book is a game changer * Davina McCall * A prescient and compassionate Rosetta Stone for those trying to understand mental illness. Beautiful * Russell Brand * Extraordinary ... A highly personal book, written with humility, humour and candour, it nonetheless heralds a crucial new discussion about our mental health - and health of the world we've created for ourselves ... I honestly couldn't put it down. What a stunning piece of work * Brian Eno * As with his book on drugs, Johann Hari has delivered a remarkable tour de force on a difficult, complex and controversial subject and made the reader think anew * Alastair Campbell * This is a bold and inspiring book that will help far more than just those who suffer from depression. As Hari shows, we all have within us the potential to live in ways that are healthier and wiser * Arianna Huffington * An exquisitely lucid treatise on why no person is, has been or ever should be an island. This book is the most exciting thing I've read this year. From slightly seedy to suicidal - however you are feeling - read this book and it will honestly help you to understand which roads we must walk if we want to see true, lasting change * Emma Thompson * A vital, compelling and eye-opening examination of the myths we have been taught to believe about depression and anxiety ... Hari again proves that he is one of the world's most important and most enlightening thinkers and social critics * Glenn Greenwald * This is an astonishing book, that transforms our understanding of one of the crucial issues of our times. Johann Hari asks the big questions and provides the big answers - answers that have been neglected for far too long. You cannot fully understand this great curse of our age until you have read it * George Monbiot * Johann Hari has written a book that could actually make us happy. It is very important everyone read this book and do what he says as quickly as possible * Simon Amstell * A brilliant book for gaining a better understanding of mental health -- Zoe Ball A beautiful book from the person that brilliantly once said the opposite of addiction is connection and who now explores and offers some solutions to our disconnection * Jemima Khan * This is an extraordinary, elegant exploration of a timely problem. It is written with wit and elan and provides a devastating analysis of our society that is both shocking and profound * Dr Max Pemberton of the Daily Mail * A bold call for a complete re-evaluation of what is causing the western epidemic of mental illness -- Isabel Hardman * Sunday Times * You might think Lost Connections is a self-help title but in reality it's a book that aims to change society, not individuals ... Lost Connections is an important and controversial book because it asks questions about the biggest problems we have in the world * Attitude Magazine * Brilliant -- Liz Jones * Mail on Sunday * A compassionate, common-sense approach to depression and anxiety ... His book brings with it an urgency and rigour that will, with luck, encourage the authorities to sit up and take note -- Fiona Sturges * Guardian * Thought-provoking ... His comprehensible and penetrating study features extensive research and interviews with everyone from leading scientists and medics to members of the Amish community. This heartening book reveals the mutual social benefits of reconnecting with others and helping them to help yourself * Western Mail * Lost Connections isn't as much about science and mental health as it is about society, and the stories we tell around mental illness ... This book's value lies in its attempt to change the stories we tell about the depressed and anxious, and perhaps help some of those suffering change how they think about themselves -- Barbara Speed * Independent i *

    Geschreven bij Lost Connections

    Ik had ooit het boek gelezen "the depths" wat een nieuwe kijk gaf op depressie. Deze vind ik anders veel beter en uitgebreider op soluties. De soluties op depressie zijn alleen niet wat je verwacht, het ligt niet aan negatief nadenken of een chemisch onbalans in je brein.
    Heel interessant :]
