When was the last time you went anywhere or did anything without your cellphone? When was the last time you took a moment for yourself—to ponder, to meditate, to relax? When was the last time you enjoyed being alone? These are the types of questions Michael Harris, author and former VanMag editor, examines in his latest book, Solitude: A Singular Life in a Crowded World.

Filled with true stories about the life-changing power of solitude, and peppered with studies from brain researchers, psychologists and tech entrepreneurs, Harris presents a compelling point-0f-view about what it means to be truly alone in our ever growing digital environment.
