GOING SOLO: THE EXTRAORDINARY RISE AND SURPRISING APPEAL OF LIVING ALONE explores the rise of solo living and examines its impact on our society and politics. Singles now represent a larger demographic and political and business forces in society are changing their target markets and approaches accordingly. From housing and economics to the personal effects of living alone, this is based on over 300 interviews the author conducted with singles of all ages and economic status, and makes for a fine survey for social issues and general lending libraries alike.
