Solitude: In Pursuit of a Singular Life in a Crowded World is a well-researched, elegantly written book by Michael Harris that says, “Yes, you are.”

Do you need permission to start your creative life?
The author of the wildly successful memoir Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert is a contemporary author who is either loved or despised. In her 2015 creativity self-help book, BIG MAGIC: CREATIVE LIVING BEYOND FEAR, she gives you the secrets to live a happy, creative life: to just go do it.
If you’ve ever read her books, you’ll be familiar with the Wordsworthian worldview in her writing: whimsical, “there is magic in the everyday.” But just like Wordsworth, Gilbert’s writing style is very me me me.
