    Forlagets omtale:

    "I came away from this book a better human being. Michael Harris' take on existence is calm, unique, and makes one's soul feel good." (Douglas Coupland). Solitude is a rapidly vanishing experience. Our society now embraces sharing like never before: time alone is being forced out of our lives by LES MER the constant pings of smartphones and prods of social media. But what if solitude still has something to offer us - something we have forgotten, but that we still desperately need? In Solitude, award-winning author Michael Harris examines why being alone matters now more than ever before. He reflects on the paradoxical feeling of isolation that emerges from being constantly connected - and on how learning the beauty of solitude can help us escape it. After all, it is when we are alone that we realise the greatest truths about ourselves. Being alone - really alone - could be the only antidote to the frenzy of our digital age. Rich with stories about the transformative power of solitude, and drawing on the research of the world's leading neuroscientists and behavioural psychologists, Solitude offers a timely and profound exploration of how to be alone - and why it matters for us all. "A timely, eloquent provocation to daydream and wander." (Nathan Filer, author of The Shock of the Fall). LES MINDRE Forlagets omtale "I came away from this book a better human being.
