In 2012, Seth recommended "The Lonely Crowd" by David Riesman and said...

This is the best-selling sociology book ever, apparently. The key argument is that Òfitting inÓ to a large group is a relatively new phenomenon, and it has changed the way human beings interact.

The Lonely Crowd is considered by many to be the most influential book of the twentieth century. Its now-classic analysis of the “new middle class” in terms of inner-directed and other-directed social character opened exciting new dimensions in our understanding of the psychological, political, and economic problems that confront the individual in contemporary American society. The 1969 abridged and revised edition of the book is now reissued with a new foreword by Todd Gitlin that explains why the book is still relevant to our own era.

“As accessible as it is acute, The Lonely Crowd is indispensable reading for anyone who wishes to understand American society. After half a century, this book has lost none of its capacity to make sense of how we live.”—Todd Gitlin
Praise for the earlier editions:

"One of the most penetrating and comprehensive views of the twentieth-century urban American you're likely to find."—Commonweal
"Brilliant and original."—Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
