It is rather an interesting, and new concept for me. See and discover other items: As deep sea fish die in a shallow tank” Also, Anneli understands that the internet is the best thing evah! I am not alone Ha Hathere are others like me.

I am NOT one of those people who gets lost in a book, mahifesto “can’t put it down”. And those times come often. Oct 30, Mike Lester rated it liked it.

Loners are a very skeptical animal and I know manifeato you won’t buy my argument my former self wouldn’t have either and that’s why you need to get ahold of the book. I grew up to be an animal rescuer. Customers who bought this item also bought. It’s simply not true.

I appreciate this book for its defense of loners like me, and I’m going to keep the book on my physical shelf as a manfesto point if nothing else, but I felt like manifeato book was a little over-the-top. Thankfully, my wife understands this about me and knows that there are stretches when I’d rather go down to my writing area and spend time there, writing pen in hand, trying to churn out books lonners games and books for gamesmore than anything else in the world.

If you ever wonder why your boyfriend thinks you are clingy when you think you are not, get a copy of the book and you’ll have a peek into loners’ mindset, and his behavior should make more sense to you provided that he is a true loner, not an accidental loner like serial killers.

Of course, Rufus cannot help but paint both the loner and the non-loner with a very wide brush; any generalizations about so many people at once is bound to be ill-fitting in some or even many cases. Knowing that there are other people out there tye crave the same manfesto of solitude that I do, and reading a book written by one of them in such lovely prose, makes me feel less alone.

Now we are very self-sufficient, but artifacts of that ancient lifestyle remain, leading to the misunderstanding, disdain, and pity of those that don’t want to be part of the group anymore. Loners keep to themselves, and like it that way. At which point its reality directly contradicts its image — yet mankfesto image persists.

But uncannily, this axiom seems to have been time tried, tested an asserted by a horde of artistes, philosophers, painters and other noticeables all catalogued with great trivial pursuit soundbites. Jan 05, Shelly Blom rated it it was amazing. Rufus earned an English degree and became a journalist.

I loved the way Anneli showed how society has changed the loner from a revered pioneer, cowboy, or Batman hero figure to the loner who shoots up work places or schools.

Rufus claims to be a celebrated author of numerous books, but this book is astonishing for its lack of any perception and marks her as an author to avoid. Interesting premise, but ultimately annoying. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.

Nonloners call loners crazy. One that struck me was the culture or anti-culture of being alone. Yet in the press, in films, in folklore, and nearly everywhere one looks, loners are tagged as losers and psychopaths, perverts and pity cases, ogres and mad bombers, elitists and wicked witches.

No one knows more about body language than CIA agents, and it just so happens that we’ve got access to one who is willing to spill all the secrets! Jan 10, Lorra Fae rated it it was amazing. Honestly, I was expecting mnaifesto rational exploration of introversion, but got what felt like a brochure of Anneli Rufus’ musings on what makes extreme loners better than non-loners.
