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.
