What is The I Factor
We live in an age of unprecedented 24/7 connection, in which Facebook, email, text messaging and other forms of electronic communication have us instantly connected to anyone and everyone around us. And yet, despite being more connected than ever, many of us are also experiencing a profound and pervasive sense of isolation and disconnectedness. We skate along the surface of our relationships, having swapped quantity for quality and frequency for depth.
The I Factor gets back to basics on what's been missing from our personal relationships all along. Specifically, this book is about intimacy, a fresh take on a very old subject and a new way of looking at a forgotten idea. Because old-fashioned intimacy is really just the deeper level of connection that most of us talk about wanting in our personal relationships, but struggle to find in our modern-day lives.
This uniquely approachable book focuses exclusively on intimacy and our universal need for connection with a collection of over one hundred concise insights that are well-suited for today's fast-paced lifestyle -- a book for the wired world of Twitter, sound bites, and short attention spans.
Clear and direct, with illustrative quotes, and cartoons for a bit of humor, this book gets to the heart of what true connection is all about. It will increase your awareness of what intimacy is and isn't, and provide a framework for cultivating more authentic and meaningful connections so that your close personal relationships can be more loving, harmonious and satisfying.
The I Factor is a book about increasing the level of connection in all of your personal relationships, including those with romantic partners, friends and family members -- and most importantly, the one you have with yourself.

Brilliant, funny, easy-to-read and a couple of wow moments that really got to me. Not only has this book helped with my personal relationships with friends, significant others and pointed out things I lacked in myself with my previous relationship but also with family. I didn't realizes how many intimacy factors I was lacking in myself. Very shocking and eye opening to say the least. A must read!
