Review- Modern Romance

Posted by William Berry | Filed under Reviews | No Comments


I bought this book on the recommendation of my daughter. I want to begin by saying I’m not a big fan of Aziz Ansari. I did watch his show, “Master of None” on Netflix, and thought it was good. But even with that, I can take him or leave him.

With that said, I loved the book. As most of you know, I struggle with relationships. I struggle even more dating. While being single or somewhat single for the better part of a year, maybe I hoped the book would help. I don’t think it helped me. It did, however, explain some things in psychological terms that increased my understanding, and as such, helped me help others.

There were a plethora of references to those published in psychology. The most prominent are Barry Schwartz and Helen Fisher, who’ve I’ve referenced in my Psychology Today posts. The book brings to life these researchers theories, and makes practical use of them. Aziz combines great psychological research, personal stories of his dating life, and comedic tangents that seem perfectly balanced to be educational and entertaining (or, as one of my former supervisors advised me, edutainment).

I loved the book. I give it my highest recommendation.
