Today, nearly half of American adults are single, and thirty-three million - roughly one out of every seven adults - live alone. With eye-opening statistics, original data, and vivid portraits of people who are going solo, renowned sociologist Eric Klinenberg proves that these numbers are more than just a passing trend. They are, in fact, evidence of the most significant demographic shift since the baby boom. Drawing on more than three hundred in-depth interviews, Klinenberg upends conventional wisdom to reveal that most single dwellers - whether in their twenties or eighties - are happier than ever, leading more active, fulfilling, and even environmentally friendlier lifestyles than their married counterparts.
