Happy Singlehood charts a way forward for singles to live life on their terms, and shows how everyone-single or coupled-can benefit from accepting solo living.
Based on personal interviews, quantitative analysis, and extensive review of singles' writings and literature, author Elyakim Kislev uncovers groundbreaking insights on how unmarried people create satisfying lives in a world where social structures and policies are still designed to favor marriage.
In this carefully crafted book, Kislev investigates how singles nurture social networks, create innovative communities, and effectively deal with discrimination. Happy Singlehood challenges listeners to rethink how single people organize social and familial ties in new ways, and illuminates how educators, policymakers, and urban planners should cater to their needs.

"Narrator Adam Lofbomm's near-flawless phrasing has a no-nonsense quality that could have sounded mechanical but doesn't because of his genuine enthusiasm and colorful vocal palette. Kislev's stirring collection of research and insights sheds new light on the challenges and opportunities of not having a partner. Lofbomm's steady security is a good match for the research-oriented material, and he has a talent for sounding positive and enthusiastic without slipping into overselling. The author is a tireless researcher who conveys a palpable curiosity about the social and economic factors that are fueling the surge in singlehood around the world. His empowering insights describe the factors that impact satisfaction with solo living, along with a variety of innovations that are making it less isolating. T.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
