Editorial Reviews

Review

"[An] evocative, observant new book."
Time

"In a society that increasingly values connectivity, moments of solitude are hard to come by . . . In Alone Time, Stephanie Rosenbloom reflects on her solo trips to Paris, Florence, Istanbul, and New York and offers even the most social of social butterflies strategies to reap the benefits of being alone."
Real Simple

"[Alone Time] will make you want to be a tourist in your own city, and to stay logged out while you explore."
Bustle 

"[Rosenbloom's] enthusiasm and eagerness are like that of a friend warmly reliving their favorite moments from a recent life-changing trip. And her happiness with her serendipitous discoveries along the way is infectious."
Popmatters

"Rosenbloom offers a leisurely look at the simple treasures waiting to be uncovered by the solo traveler . . . She also unpacks research on the benefits to approaching the world with a willingness to try something new, and a commitment to staying in the present moment. The combination makes for a richly rewarding guide for any explorer, whether of distant lands or one's own backyard."
Booklist

"Alone Time is both a paean to its title and an invitation to anyone who has ever longed to explore a new city á seul."
Shelf Awareness

"A joyous, erudite new book that is sure to delight both travelers and armchair travelers, Alone Time is a shapeshifter. Much of it is an elegant and insightful travel memoir . . . but what gives the book its heft and intellectual grounding is the way Rosenbloom is able to use her own experiences as a jumping off point for discussions of the latest psychological and sociological studies into the nature of happiness. . . . It's a deeply satisfying mix for the reader, part travel guide, part guide to living."
Pauline Frommer, co-president, Frommer's Guidebooks and Frommers.com
