"Happy Singlehood thoughtfully explores the unacknowledged increase in single living. Its serious consideration could result in greater freedom of choice, happier individuals, and more efficient economies." - Foreword Reviews
“The book...is not just for academic types. Anyone interested in a smart, thoughtful, unconventional take on single life will find a lot to like in Happy Singlehood. Kislev treats readers to the kinds of approaches we have come to expect from the most successful nonfiction trade books, including, for example, illustrating his points with stories from the single people he interviewed as well as anecdotes from his own life.” - PsychCentral
“In this well-sourced and researched book, Kislev thoroughly explains the growing popularity of the ‘single by choice’ phenomenon, providing real-life examples culled from interviews and blogs with singles." - Jerusalem Post
“Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers.” - CHOICE
