User reviews about the book
And I knew I would. Aziz is one of the more smarter comedians in this day and age so I knew that any book written by him would not only be super funny but educational too. I learned and laughed a lot from this book and I'm sure anyone who picks it up will too.
This book is fantastic. A comedian takes a sociological perspective on today's dating scene and it could not be any more interesting. Aziz did an incredible amount of research for this project and it shows. For me, a lot of this book was very relatable and it helped me realize that I'm not the only person out there feeling and experiencing the same things. This book made me change the way I approach life and that's what a good book is supposed to do.
Interesting and Funny
I have not finished reading the book, but so far it's hilarious. I can literally imagine, and hear Aziz saying all his remarks in this book. This book was not meant to give you advice in how to get a date, but to state the obvious and make fun of it. If you like Aziz then you will enjoy this book. Highly recommend.
Excellent depiction of romance today.
Ansari injects comedy into the complicated world of dating and young adulthood. Guaranteed to make you laugh at yourself and his hilarious pop culture references.
Funny and Insightful
By Ya Boy James
Hilarious and all too truthful look at the crazy world of modern dating. Home run for Aziz.
This is the first book I'm reading in a long while and by far the best!! Wow! This has opened my mind so much to what is going on today. Unbelievably exciting read! Would definitely recommend this to anyone
Oh, Modern Romance!
Absolutely great read! I'm so glad I picked this! I have a better understanding of whyyyyy Romance today is the way it is. From the studies to the comedy, Aziz did his thing!
I could chalk this up with all other self-help books on relationships and just let it simmer in mediocrity, but I can't. It would not do this book justice. This book is a hilarious and honest take on romance in the 21st century, more specifically, this current decade! It leaves the reader and its intended audience with an opportunity to bond with other readers on a common, ongoing pursuit. While several factors were eliminated for simplicity and book length, it presents the reader with a bottom line: establishing a balance in the changes provided to us through technology and the person created in that world versus the life we live tangibly. Achieving this will give us the best shot at finding the ONE we want to love. Any book at encourages its readers to embrace change and keep in touch with reality is solid, in my honest opinion! He can't stop here! This book needs a sequel to explore other factors!
A few funny and witty remarks, some interesting data, and an easy read. Heteronormative and limited in scope by necessity, but altogether a quick insightful look at romance in our hyper-technological world and society.
