Now a "New York Times" Bestseller
A hilarious, thoughtful, and in-depth exploration of thepleasures and perils of modern romance from one of this generation s sharpest comedic voices
At some point, every one of us embarks on ajourney to find love. We meet people, date, getinto and out of relationships, all with the hopeof finding someone with whom we share a deepconnection. This seems standard now, but it swildly different from what people did even justdecades ago. Single people today have moreromantic options than at any point in humanhistory. With technology, our abilities to connectwith and sort through these options are staggering.So why are so many people frustrated?
Some of our problems are unique to our time. Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza? Should I go out with this girl even though shelisted Combos as one of her favorite snack foods?Combos? My girlfriend just got a message fromsome dude named Nathan. Who s Nathan? Did hejust send her a photo of his penis? Should I checkjust to be sure?
But the transformation of our romantic livescan t be explained by technology alone. In a shortperiod of time, the whole culture of finding lovehas changed dramatically. A few decades ago, people would find a decent person who lived intheir neighborhood. Their families would meetand, after deciding neither party seemed like amurderer, they would get married and soon havea kid, all by the time they were twenty-four. Today, people marry later than ever and spend years oftheir lives on a quest to find the perfect person, asoul mate.
For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming hiscomic insight at modern romance, but for "ModernRomance," the book, he decided he needed to takethings to another level. He teamed up with NYUsociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massiveresearch project, including hundreds of interviewsand focus groups conducted everywhere fromTokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita. They analyzedbehavioral data and surveys and created their ownonline research forum on Reddit, which drewthousands of messages. They enlisted the world sleading social scientists, including Andrew Cherlin, Eli Finkel, HelenFisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz, SherryTurkle, and Robb Willer. The result is unlike anysocial science or humor book we ve seen before.
In "Modern Romance," Ansari combines hisirreverent humor with cutting-edge social scienceto give us an unforgettable tour of our newromantic world."

Recenzii

Steve Levitt, co-author of the #1 "New York Times" bestselling "Freakonomics"
"Always-hilarious Aziz Ansari proves you can be smart and funny at the same time. Not only did I laugh my ass off, I really learned stuff. Where was this book when I was 22 years old? "
Dave Eggers, author of "Your Fathers, Where Are They? And the Prophets, Do They Live Forever?: "
""Modern Romance" is just like Aziz Ansari himself--charming, thoughtful, reasonable, and able to distill the madness of the world into something both sane and wildly funny."
Sherry Turkle, author of "Reclaiming Conversation "
"It's the voices that will have you reading this remarkable book in one sitting! The voices of old people who married someone who lived in their apartment building or the building next door and the voices of the young people who check out hundreds of romantic possibilities a night, with so much choice that choice becomes impossible. And then there is the voice of Ansari himself, funny, of course, but also deeply compassionate. For after a year of surveying romance across the planet, he finds that all the apps in the world leave us with this human truth: you have to spend time with a person to figure out, face-to-face, if they're the one. And perhaps, just perhaps, it's the fact of spending time that makes them the one. We nurture what we love and we love what we nurture! This book defines serious fun."
"Helen Fisher, author of "Why Him? Why Her?: How to Find and Keep Lasting Love: ""
"Ansari and Klinenberg elegantly capture the entirely new ways that singles communicate, court, and find love today. "Modern Romance" is a captivating read, with deep insight into history, science, and culture, and loads of wit and charm. Along the way, you may even collect some valuable tips for finding a soul mate."

"Laughing is my second least-favorite thing in the world after thinking. This book was torture. Not a page passed without an unwanted eruption of giggles or insight. Aziz is funny as hell, and smart as shit."

Natasha Gilmore, "Publishers Weekly: "
Ansari, a comedian and TV actor, has co-written a book with a legitimate sociologist about what it means to date in the modern era. When technology and instant gratification are changing the landscape of human interactions, dating is weirder than ever, and I'm looking forward to Ansari's sense of humor and cultural criticism on the topic, which he's started to address in his stand-up.
