Publisher's Summary

On a brisk October morning in New York, Julie Jenson, a single 38-year-old book publicist, gets a hysterical phone call from her friend Georgia. Reeling from her husband's announcement that he is leaving her for a samba teacher, Georgia convinces a reluctant Julie to organize a fun girls' night out with all of their single friends to remind her why it is so much fun not to be tied down. But the night becomes a wake-up call for Julie because none of her friends seem to be having much fun: Alice, a former legal aid attorney has recently quit her job to start dating for a living; Serena, who is so busy becoming a fully realized person that she can't find time to look for a mate; and Ruby, a curvy and compassionate woman, has been mourning the death of her cat for months.
Fed up being single in Manhattan, Julie sets off to find out how women around the world deal with this dreaded phenomenon. From Paris to Rio to Sydney, Bali, Beijing, Mumbai, and Reykjavik, Julie falls in love, gets her heart broken, sees the world, and learns more than she ever dreamed possible. Written in Liz Tuccillo's pitch-perfect, hilarious, and relatable voice, How to Be Single is the ultimate novel for the adventurer in us all.

Funny, quirky, enjoyable read

A funny, sexy, uplifting and yet sometimes bleak look at one woman's quest to learn more about the plight of being a single woman over the age of 35-ish from New York City to various cities around the world. Narrated with engaging quirkiness by actor Judy Greer, I couldn't wait to hear more.

It's a must listen too.

I got this book, because I heard that Dakota Johnson was in the movie coming out in 2016. This book had me laughing even though I'm not single any more I felt like I coukd relate. it's a great story and it has a lot of truth to it. I suggest listening to it.
