In his new book entitled Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, Klinenberg challenges conventional wisdom by examining the lives of healthy and happy single dwellers. With eye-opening statistics, original data, and vivid portraits of people who go solo, Klinenberg delivers the definitive take on how the rise of living alone is transforming the American experience.
