              Renowned sociologist Eric Klinenberg explores the dramatic rise of solo living and examines the seismic impact it's having on our culture. Conventional wisdom says living alone leads to loneliness and isolation, but most solo dwellers are deeply engaged in civic and social life. ...In fact, compared with their married counterparts, they are more likely to exercise, go to art and music classes, attend public events, and volunteer. There is even evidence that people who live alone enjoy better mental health. In a world of hyper-connectivity, this way of life helps us appreciate the pleasure of good company. With eye-opening statistics, original data, and vivid portraits of people who go solo, Klinenberg upends the conventional wisdom to deliver the definitive take on how the rise of living alone is transforming the American experience.

              Going Solo is an examination of the most significant demographic shift since the Baby Boom -- the sharp increase in the number of people who live alone. In 1950, only 22 percent of American adults were single. Today, more than 50 percent of American adults are single and 31 milli...on -- roughly one out of every seven adults -- live alone. In Going Solo, renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg proves that these numbers are more than just a passing trend. They're actually evidence of the biggest demographic shift since the Baby Boom. We are crafting new ways of living. Klinenberg explores the seismic impact going solo is having on culture, business, and politics. Though conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, the facts tell us that most solo dwellers are deeply engaged in social and civic life. Compared with their married counterparts, they are more likely to eat out and exercise, go to art and music
