Do you know that close to 50% of people who live in Manhattan live alone? This stunning statistic is not an isolated but a worldwide phenomenon. Solo Power was written for the 32 million Americans who live alone and who are in search of happiness. The author takes us on a journey of self-discovery as she explores the happiness, the challenges and the transition phases of the solo fliers she interviewed. Insights and integration from great thinkers, such as Martin Seligman’s Happiness Formula, Stefan Klein’s thesis on how to use the brain to make us happy, and the wisdom of Eastern Tradition are all reflexively interwoven into the happiness tapestry. What comes out are patterns—patterns of behavior that can be replicated by anyone who chooses to lead a happy and fulfilled life and a revelation that the Power is within all of us.
