The End of Solitude

I love both Dr. Deresiewicz’s writing style and general message of internal growth, building a true self, and seeing beyond aesthetics and name-brands. Though I generally don’t like collections of shorter essays as books (I strongly prefer full-length narratives and constructions), this one was pleasant to read. I found most of the essays compelling and interesting. Some less so, but easily skippable. Dr. Deresiewicz has a lot of really positive messages and beliefs that I agree with. This was a nice walk through a diverse park.
