Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging

Updated: February 25, 2019

Sebastian Junger takes a look at post-traumatic stress disorder and the many challenges today's veterans face in modern society.

Favorite quotes from the book:

“Humans don't mind hardship, in fact they thrive on it; what they mind is not feeling necessary. Modern society has perfected the art of making people not feel necessary. It's time for that to end.”

“human beings need three basic things in order to be content: they need to feel competent at what they do; they need to feel authentic in their lives; and they need to feel connected to others. These values are considered "intrinsic" to human happiness and far outweigh "extrinsic" values such as beauty, money and status.”
