2 That nagging voice in your head is probably right. I am not on a crusade to convince everyone to go solo. My crusade is to reach those who want to go solo but are afraid to try to pull it off. Jim Voigt had had the spirit of a solo professional from a young age, starting his first business “Corporate Start-Ups” at the age of 14. After a successful career in sales, Jim turned to law and put his sales skills to work building a strong book of business. But traditional employment never “clicked” and Jim longed for more freedom both financially and personally. His transition to solo practice went well, but he saw other solo professionals struggle. He wanted to help. Going Solo is the result of his research into the struggles and successes of his own career and those professionals he met along his journey. Jim now brings his practical message of the attainability of solo freedom to others who feel trapped in traditional firms or underperforming solo practices.

In 1950, only 22% of adults were single. Today, more than 50% of adults are. Though conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, most solo dwellers, compared with their married counterparts, are more likely to eat out and exercise, sign up for art and music classes, attend public events and lectures, and volunteer. Drawing on over three hundred in-depth interviews with men and women of all ages and every class, Eric Klinenberg reaches some startling conclusions about the seismic impact solo living is having on our culture, business and politics.

The author addresses the fears and exhaustion of single parenting, while revealing the keys to gaining strength and courage for each day. He also shares how he found his “solo” relationship with his heavenly Father through his “solo” parenting season.

Going Solo is the empowering and uplifting story of one woman's choice to become a single mother. 'I hope this story gives hope to anyone who wants children and to anyone who finds themselves single. Not to follow this path necessarily, but to remember that there are always many options.' Aged thirty-seven, single and having experienced two miscarriages, Genevieve Roberts found out that her fertility levels were dwlindling. On hearing this news, she made the courageous decision to embark on motherhood solo and eventually became pregnant using a sperm donor. Genevieve describes her initial fear of the prospect of birth without a partner, and the trepidation she felt towards all the responsibility she has taken on. She recounts all the milestones of pregnancy and motherhood that most women share with their partner -- going to NCT classes alone, taking part in birthing workshops with her sister-in-law, her amazement that two people in her pregnancy yoga class are following the same path as her. But ultimately what triumphs is Genevieve's excitement at meeting her daughter. She recalls the first months of parenthood, navigating the love, worry and tiredness of life with a newborn without a partner. She describes the beautiful simplicity of the relationship between herself and her daughter, as she gets to know Astrid without having to consider a partner. Going Solo is for anyone whose life has taken an unexpected twist; for people who are interested in modern families and for those who want to take control of their life and follow their dreams of parenthood. It celebrates the fulfilment that comes from following what makes you happy, and reminds us that beauty may be found when life offers a surprise or a deviation from convention.

An insightful travel memoir about a three-month round-the-world journey that explores identity and how we fit into history and the global landscape. The daily realities of going solo as a senior combine with reflections on living and working abroad to highlight the vital role travel can play in the perpetual work in progress of learning who we are. Growing up as an immigrant, the author’s sense of belonging was ever challenged, making her question her national identity. Finding answers meant leaving home to explore the world; this memoir brings decades of observations together. She shows how experiencing unfamiliar social and political environments – some with questionable interpretations of freedom, justice, and human rights – helped define her identity by bringing her beliefs and values into focus. Travellers, she found, share traits such as openness to new ideas, curiosity, tolerance, and compassion – she aims to belong to that tribe. Reflecting on John – a fellow passenger who’s still going solo aged ninety – the memoir concludes that it’s never too late to start exploring and rewriting the story of who we are.

In Going Solo, the world's favourite storyteller, Roald Dahl, tells of life as a fighter pilot in Africa. 'They did not think for one moment that they would find anything but a burnt-out fuselage and a charred skeleton, and they were astounded when they came upon my still-breathing body lying in the sand nearby.' In 1938 Roald Dahl was fresh out of school and bound for his first job in Africa, hoping to find adventure far from home. However, he got far more excitement than he bargained for when the outbreak of the Second World War led him to join the RAF. His account of his experiences in Africa, crashing a plane in the Western Desert, rescue and recovery from his horrific injuries in Alexandria, flying a Hurricane as Greece fell to the Germans, and many other daring deeds, recreates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any he wrote about in his fiction. 'Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror' Evening Standard 'A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship' The New York Times Book Review Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.
