Publisher's Summary

It’s the great paradox of the digital age, what Radha Agrawal calls “community confusion” - the Internet connects us to hundreds, thousands, even millions of people, and yet we feel more isolated than ever, with one in four Americans saying they have zero friends to confide in. Where are our people? The answer is found in Belong, a highly energetic guide to discovering where and with whom you fit. 

After suffering her own bout of community confusion, Agrawal embarked on a journey that ultimately resulted in cofounding Daybreaker, a transformative phenomenon where thousands of people get up at the crack of dawn, meet in event spaces in 22 cities around the world, and dance. Now she’s distilled her experience for finding meaningful connections into a two-step process. 

The first step is going in. This includes determining what we want in a friend and community and what we offer, becoming intentional about our relationships, gauging the type of energy we emit and respond to, and understanding how we do - or don’t - show up for others. Then comes going out - how to find a few special friends who feed our soul; or how to find a fully engaged group with similar business, artistic, and social aims; or both. 

Connectedness is the most significant factor in human happiness - Belong is a creative blueprint for bringing this most important dimension back into our lives.

Wonderful experience that will truly improve your life

Stop hanging out with the wrong people doing things that don’t fulfill and energize you, and choose how you spend your time and who you spend it with. In BELONG, Radha Agrawal beautifully explains how she found her tribe and built a truly global dance party, Daybreaker, with and for the people she loved. (If you've ever been to one of her Daybreaker parties, held monthly in 24 cities around the world, you’ve felt the strong sense of community and a feeling of belonging that radiates through the dance floor. It's a pulse that makes you simultaneously want to dance your face off and hug everyone!) The book navigates how she found and expanded a strong community of like-minded and like-spirited individuals. Radha sprinkles in interactive assignments that transform this easy listen into a productive, nourishing and introspective experience.

Inspiring and sensible

Now I want to get the book for reference! This book touches on human essentials, values we all share; it offers wisdom and initiatives on how to foster community one person at a time. I will take a year to follow through and internalize the sage advice of “Belong.”

Short and simple explanation for something difficult.

Step 1: become positive
Step 2: surround self with positive people
Step 3: do things you like to do with people you like

She touches on some pretty heavy topics such as self love and figuring out what kind of person you want to become. The book is short so she flies through it. I noticed the actual book has some cute designed pages to try her activities in. Overall I think it is well explained and broken down into simple language. This wasn’t what I was looking for. I wanted something with more depth. I think it’s great for someone who wants to change but they don’t know how or why to start the journey. A great overview.

Great Book

Love this book, I'll listen again as I think the big concepts are refreshing in an era when most are more connected to virtual associations (FB, LinkedIn, IG, Twitter, etc) rather than real connections. People spend entire evenings on Twitter. I love the concept of building your own place of "belonging" actual physical places, and the many examples of how. I like the actual application including of how critical it is to first look inward; being the kind of person who we would want to be around. Example: We must be reliable, consistent, etc (all the other things each of us finds desirable in close friends and community members),

The reason for the 4 stars, way too many acronyms. If you need a dictionary for a book to define all the acronyms, it's too much. Not sure if she has a dictionary for this book, I recommend one since each chapter is littered with acronyms. The sales motto, keep it simple, really holds true. People remember ONE key acronym an author or speaker wants its readers/listeners to take away rather than each chapter containing several.

Heart centered information

I enjoyed the story and the information very much.
Although the audio quality was off;which is why I gave the performance a 3star. Did anyone do audio editing? I'm a voice actor and do home recording.
I am very sensitive to audio quality.
Otherwise, the information shared is appreciated and valued very much
Thank you..

Inspired and practical

So refreshing to read and learn from Radha. Having been to Daybreaker, she is a master of thinking outside the box.

I'd rather read the book

I'd rather read the book. Unfortunately I cannot handle the narrators voice. Some audibles are like that, this is one of them.

Valuable principles, but felt shamed more than not

There is good advice as guidance to be found here. When the author talks about her own experiences it's much easier to identify with and digest the central theme. However more often than not when the author is trying to dispense advice whole cloth, I felt brow beaten by the aggressive shaming of people using tech. i agree that a connected life is important and does see much more fulfilling, yet the book spends too much time assuming too much about the readers habits and inclinations. I wanted more of a path to get from where I am to where I want to be, and instead at many turns got a prescription for a life that is a few steps farther down the road than i can see.

Inspiring!

This audiobook inspired me to be brave in meeting new people, adventurous in discovering new communities, and creative in caring for people. It showed me how wonderful a light-hearted and fun-loving approach to community can be. And it reminded me that building friendships and community takes intentionality, work, and commitment.

The concrete advice that Radha Agrawal offers is on-point, but the most impactful thing about listening to this book was simply being exposed to her creativity and ENERGY. I love how she included plenty of personal anecdotes - it made the book more entertaining and relatable.
