Unmarried Men in America
Well, who wouldn’t pick up a book with this title? If I hadn’t been browsing the 300s I doubt this would have been on my radar. Guess what? Being single for guys is very bad for you, and society for that matter. You may think the irresponsible “Playboy” lifestyle is all that and a bag of chips, but Gilder is here to show you that being single is a one way trip to prison, or a hospital, or you may simply just die. Evidently single guys just can’t hack life.
The voice and tone is very 1970s. Nice for a glimpse into the past, but probably not a keeper for most regular public libraries. I would like to see if the author updated his book. From the dust jacket, he wasn’t married so maybe he is in prison or dead by now. If you want more on our manly man Gilder, you can see his Wikipedia page here. Sorry to disappoint, but there are no naked pictures of nomads or anyone else for that matter.
