Recently, I went to a talk here at UC Santa Barbara by a communications scholar who studies deception. When he got to one of the puzzling aspects of the available research on deception, he said that thinking about it kept him up at night.
“All Things Single” readers, I’m blogging to you first. My new book, Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matterse, and How to Stop It – written together with 28 other contributors – is now available. You can get it here at Amazon, though as I write this, Amazon has not yet added the description of the book. (They build book pages one or two sections at a time.) You can also get the paperback here, at the book’s own page, where the description does show up.
In the UK Sunday Times on May 8, a former Team 6 Seal member said this about the guys in the unit who got bin Laden:
Every so often, someone publishes one of those predictable “best places to be single” stories. They are always the same – they are not about places for people who want to live their single lives, but instead about the best places to become unsingle. I’ve been thinking about the question because of an email I recently received from a reader, Rosemary.
I try never to let a full week pass without posting here but I seem to have blown it this time. It is for a good reason, though. I have been totally engaged in working on the Singlism book, the one I described earlier that will include lots of contributions from other wonderful thinkers, authors, and activists as well as my own writings. I’ve been organizing the contributions, doing some editing, and refining my own articles and essays. Now I’m rereading every page to be sure it is all in order. I’m very excited about this.
