    I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy NetGalley of Happy Singlehood The Rising Acceptance and Celebration of Solo Living The stories and statistics resonated on multiple levels from witnessing some of my own family members struggle with the stereotyping that comes with choosing to remain permanently single after losing a spouse to an illness or divorce to my own lifelong internal battle of choosing marriage over single life Happy Singlehood takes the narrative of solo living beyond the traditional baseline assessment, presenting actionable steps that readers can implement immediately and long term to achieve dramatic results that defy the societal norm, Marriage is the best way Readers will learn how to accept and embrace singlehood, defy societal pressures, take a stand in the workplace that favors families over singles, and so much After reading the book, I find myself once ag...

    As an author who writes about single life in the U.S., I was eager to read this book as soon as I heard about it It did not disappoint Drawing data from multiple cultures, it documents the growth of single life as a global phenomenon, illustrating not only differences but also astonishing similarities among disparate social groups In addition to presenting evidence to show how well singles fare in life despite the obstacles they face, Kislev pushes the envelope to speculate about future trends based on changes in social organizations, communication technolog...

    This is an important book As Kislev points out, most people, when asked to name groups that are subject to discrimination and prejudice do not automatically name singles Yet the negative stereotyping, overt and subtle social exclusion, and discrimination in the workplace and elsewhere, faced by single people is constant and often goes unchallenged.Kislev cites interviews and statistical data to show that the growing trend towards long periods of singleness is both inevitable and potentially a positive development He also discusses the characteristics and strategies that enable many people to experience their singleness whether or not they consciously chose it as a joyous, healthy and productive way of life.Two discussions are missing here for me The first is the genuine desire that many people feel, to find a long term ideally life long partner I felt that this urge was treated in the book as a construct made up entirely of social pressure sometimes cynically reinforced by governments pragmatic calculations of future happiness, often misplaced We emerge with a sense that if people were fully aware that their needs for sex, companionship and practical support in old age could easily and reliably be met without marriage, most peoples desire for long term partnership would disappear Can this be demonstrated It wouldn t trouble me the message of the book is clearly that everyone must choose what is right for ...

    Great book with a lot of insight Especially in these times of social change and and nonconformism Really helped me put a lot of abstract concepts I had had in my mind forever into words.I would really like a sequel that explores the possibility of a world where the family cell and monogamic relationships have ceased to exist I am single by choice, because I don t see how being in a relationship is the most effective way to live a happy life I d love for that angle to...
