Party of One: The Loner’s Manifesto : A bit melodramatic, to be sure, but very interesting nonetheless. It makes distinctions between introverts and loners that I’ve not seen before, and attempts to de-mythologize the negative connotation that the word “loner” has gained by exposing advertising media attempts to use peer pressure to encourage consumerism. A good (and quick) read for anyone who is a loner or introvert, or has a friend or loved one who fits the bill.
