I found this book at the library on accident one day and it truly changed my life. Navigating the least loner-friendly place on earth-high school-can be hell, and just knowing that there's enough people like me out there to warrant a book about the subject makes me ecstatic. The chatty sector of the rest of the world should take a cue from Rufus' great book and realize we're not freaks in fact, loners are usually alot more emotionally resilient, independent, and creative than the mob.

I bought this book after skimming through it because I have some loner tendencies and wanted to read more about what the author had to say. After a few chapters, though, I felt that I was reading the same words over and over. OK, you're a loner and proud of it¿I get it. But while agreeing with some of the premises, such as that it's fine to dine alone or venture out by yourself, I feel that it's not a sin to socialize, either. Do whatever you're in the mood for! I fully understand the dismay at the all-too-common 'loner as sociopath' depiction in society, but the book came across to me as very angry and too much 'us vs. them'. About halfway through, I lost interest and never finished reading it.
