This book has been printed 3 times and most recently in 2012. The original study was done in 1959-61. In the introduction to the recent edition, Rick Moody clearly captures why this story continues to resonant with us.

“…in some of the most passionate writing in this book, Rokeach describes the ultimate goal of his experiment: to help the men depicted therein to ‘transcend loneliness.’ And maybe this book, as a literary act, will help us along these lines, too, in its generosity and its quixotic ambition”
