In 1950, only 22 percent of adults were single. Today, more than 50 percent of adults are. Eric Klinenberg explores the dramatic rise of solo living, and the seismic impact it's having on our culture, business and politics.
Though conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, most 'solo dwellers', compared with their married counterparts, are more likely to eat out and exercise, sign up for art and music classes, attend public events and lectures, and volunteer. Drawing on over three hundred in-depth interviews with men and women of all ages and every class, Klinenberg reaches some startling conclusions.
With eye-opening statistics, original data and vivid portraits of people who go it alone, Going Solo upends common preconceptions to provide the definitive take on the rise of this major trend and how it is transforming modern society.
