 A book cannot unmake a pandemic, but it can give help in coping and perspective. This book does not peddle the positive -Dr Pangloss, Voltaire's character, who thought all was for the best in the best of all possible worlds, does not feature - but one should remember that a crisis is also often an opportunity.'' (From the preface) 

2020 has been the year of the virus. It will not be a mere footnote in history. This book reflects on the unprecedented changes to our lives and the impact on our behaviour as we lived through social isolation during the global Covid-19 pandemic. From sociable creatures of habit, we were forced into a period of uncertainty, restriction and risk, physically separated from families and friends. 

Packed with guidance and coping strategies for lockdown, top psychologist, David Cohen, explores the impact of this wide-spread quarantine on our relationships, our children, our mental health and our daily lives. Benedictine monks, hermit popes, Dorothy Sayers, Daniel Defoe (who made the isolated Robinson Crusoe a hero), Sigmund Freud and a rabbi?s angry dog are all among the cast of characters as we are taken on a whistle-stop tour through plagues in history and brain science, to the importance of introspection and how to make meaning from lockdown. In his trademark entertaining style, he examines the psychology behind our behaviour during this unusual time to discover what we can learn about human nature, what lessons we can learn for the future- and whether we will.
