Dr. Rae André is Professor of Organizational Behavior at Northeastern University in Boston. She is co-author of the bestselling The 59-Second Employee: How to Stay One Second Ahead of Your One-Minute Manager and author of Homemakers, the Forgotten Workers, among other books. Her work on solitude has been featured in Prevention and New Woman magazines and the British documentary Single Life.From Library Journal:
"Aloneness" conjures up feelings of fear and rejection, and most self-help material which deals with it counsels joining a group, finding a new hobby, or traveling. Andre ( Homemakers , LJ 4/1/81) has decided that societal attitudes can change by redefining "alone" in a more positive manner. When alone, a "feedback gap" occurs, she feels, meaning there is no one with whom to talk or socialize. The basic problem lies in attempting to fill this gap in meaningful ways that can prevent loneliness. She discusses six loneliness traps and offers solutions to them. Emerson, Thoreau, Maslow, and May Sarton are called upon to define the meaning of solitude. Contemplative therapies including logotherapy and Japanese techniques are discussed, making this appropriate for public as well as academic libraries.
