Singled Out is a myth-busting, consciousness-raising, totally unapologetic take on singlehood. Drawing from decades of scientific research and stacks of stories from the front lines of singlehood, Bella DePaulo, Ph.D., debunks the myths and shows that just about everything you've heard about the benefits of getting married and the perils of staying single is grossly exaggerated or just plain wrong.
Although singles are singled out for unfair treatment in the workplace, the marketplace, and the federal tax structure, they are not simply victims of this singlism. Single people really are living happily ever after.
Filled with bracing bursts of truth and dazzling dashes of humor, Singled Out is a spirited and provocative read for the single, the married, and everyone in between.
