Críticas:

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? (Steve Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics)

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 ( Dave Eggers)

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 (Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Eating Animals)

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. This book defines serious fun (Sherry Turkle, Abby Rockefeller Mauzé Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and author of Alone Together and Reclaiming Conversation)

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 (Helen Fisher, Senior Research Fellow, The Kinsey Institute; author of Why Him? Why Her?)

Reseña del editor:

A hilarious and in-depth exploration of the pleasures and perils of modern romance from one of this generation's most popular and sharpest comedic voices

Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history. Thanks to social media, online dating and mobile technology, our abilities to connect with and sort through these options are staggering. So why are so many people frustrated?

The transformation of our romantic lives can't be explained by technology alone. In a short period of time, the whole culture of finding love has changed dramatically. A few decades ago, people would find a decent person who lived in their neighbourhood. Their families would meet and, after deciding neither party seemed like a murderer, they would get married and soon have a kid, all by the time they were twenty-four. Today, people marry later than ever and spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate.

For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming his comic insight at modern romance, but for the book he teamed up with award-winning sociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massive research project, including hundreds of interviews and focus groups conducted everywhere from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita. They analysed behavioural data and surveys and created their own online research forum on Reddit, which drew thousands of messages. They enlisted the world's leading social scientists, including Eli Finkel, Helen Fisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz and Sherry Turkle. The result is unlike any social science or humour book we've seen before.

In Modern Romance, Ansari combines his irreverent humour with cutting-edge social science to give us an unforgettable tour of our new romantic world.

Descripción Penguin Random House, 2015. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. First edition. People today have more romantic options than at any point in human history and thanks to social media, smart phones and online dating, our abilities to connect with these options are staggering. Yet we also have to face new and absurd dilemmas, such as what to think when someone doesn`t reply to your text but has time to post a photo of a pizza on Instagram. But this transformation of our romantic lives cannot be explained by technology alone. Whereas once most people would find a decent person who probably lived in their neighborhood and marry by the age of 23, today we spend years of our lives on a quest to find our soul mate. While Ansari has long aimed his comedic insight at modern relationships, here he teamed up with award-winning sociologist Eric Klinenberg to research dating cultures from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to Paris, crunch the quantitative data and interview some of the world`s leading social scientists.The result is an unforgettable tour of the romantic landscape.
