MARKETABLE YOUNG AUTHOR: Rosenbloom has a powerful platform as the travel writer for the New York Times. She has appeared in videos, podcasts, and digital projects including CNN’s American Morning, NBC’s Today Show, NPR’s New Tech City as well as The New York Times Knowledge Network’s “Networks and Female Entrepreneurs” live interactive webcast.
FOCUS ON THE PLEASURES OF SLOWING DOWN: Research by scholars at the Harvard Business School recently published results that found that when we reflect on moments, it’s the everyday ones that deliver the greatest happiness.
TRAVEL WRITING AT ITS BEST: Books about solo travel generally fall into one of two categories: seeing the world on a shoestring budget, or becoming involved in a romance while the author is midway through a quest to begin anew in a foreign land. Alone Time examines the unique pleasures of solo travel by exploring the ways in which being alone is, and has been for centuries, an exceptional opportunity for savoring new pleasures and the delight of making unexpected discoveries.
Praise for Alone Time:
“In a society that increasingly values connectivity, moments of solitude are hard to come by…In Alone Time, Stephanie Rosenbloom reflects on her solo trips to Paris, Florence, Istanbul, and New York and offers even the most social of social butterflies strategies to reap the benefits of being alone.”
—Nora Horvath, Real Simple
“A joyous, erudite new book that is sure to delight both travelers and armchair travelers, Alone Time is a shapeshifter. Much of it is an elegant and insightful travel memoir…but what gives the book its heft and intellectual grounding is the way Rosenbloom is able to use her own experiences as a jumping off point for discussions of the latest psychological and sociological studies into the nature of happiness…. It’s a deeply satisfying mix for the reader, part travel guide, part guide to living.”
