Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Why is it so hard to meet The One?
In this book Aziz Ansari looks at the modern dating world in a way that only a stand-up comic who double-majored in business and biology can. It’s humor backed up by data, which is always the way to my non-fiction loving heart.
I thought it was going to be a completely different book and was pleasantly surprised. He stared a subreddit and held focus groups around the world to find out how people are dating and mating these days. He partnered with a sociologist and statisticians. It’s a witty, fascinating read.
But if you’re an Academic, you have access to much more substantial books and bodies of research than this one. This one is for us plebes who grabbed our BAs and ran for the college door.
