Book Review: Modern Romance

This post also appears on my Goodreads blog

I was expecting to like this book a lot more, but I was left with a strong sense of deja vu while I read it. I must however highlight the effort put into doing some solid research around the subject (the book acknowledges the work of many top researchers including danah boyd, Sherry Turkle). I especially loved Aziz’s take on Jonathan Haidt’s graphs from ‘The Happiness Project’. His distinctive style of humor also added to the way the topic was presented. Overall, maybe the PR (and binge watching ‘Master of None’) did too good a job, since I was left feeling like I’d already read half the book.
