    Aziz Ansari is a funny guy. I've enjoyed his work as an actor and a comedian, so I shouldn't have been surprised when I really liked his book. But I was surprised, especially when I learned that he had teamed up with a sociologist and did actual research on modern romance. Aziz was...

    At the beginning of the audiobook, Aziz joked with 'us listeners', about being "Lazy People"......too lazy to sit down and read a book. He not only had to write the book, but now he 'had' to read it us us too! Aziz is entertaining and hilarious no questions about it. Love the g...

    I am a satisfied single. I did not coin that term, I did hear it from somewhere, but I don?t remember who said it. Sorry person who said it. Anyway.....what this means to me is that I?m fine with being on my own. It?s easy. Would I like to meet ?the love of my life? or ?...

    I've been so behind on my reviewing these days, but I had so much fun with this one I wanted to make sure I didn't let it fall through the dark cracks into the swirling abyss where my non-reviewed books go. I'm a huge fan of Ansari. I think he's cute as a button and funny as goddam...

    So, this isn't really a humorous book about Aziz Ansari's dating experiences, it's more like a book about dating in the modern world, written by the very humorous Aziz Ansari. I was introduced to Aziz's stand-up by my oldest son, and I've been hooked on him ever since. He's hila...

    This book is more insightful than I first anticipated. It is a funny book indeed, but the focus group discussions and other researches that discussed in this book are good for my own thinking and introspection. ...

    The knowledge offered in this book is pretty common and obvious, nothing you haven't read online/heard on a podcast. But some anecdotes, especially about dating in other countries/cultures are funny and interesting. I am glad I listened to an audio narrated by Ansari himself. I can'...

    There's a reason why Goodreads aptly put this book in a non-fiction category in this year Goodreads Choice Awards, while it could've easily been in the humor section. The thing is, much like his brilliant new series Master of None, the comedy's there, but not as a central point. In...

    Ok, so I picked this up thinking this was going to be a Aziz Ansari version of a Steve Harvey book. You know the kind with advice like "Ladies, don't call him back right away!" kind of thing. This is not that kind of book. Ansari worked with a sociologist to look at love in the mod...

    Aziz has written a book on romance and dating in the 21st Century and he wants us all to take him seriously. I know what you're thinking, and so did Aziz, "Another comedian book, another fluffed out 200 page book with anecdotes that probably didn't happen". This is not that...

    I got married in 1989. In India in those days, "love" marriages were still exceptions rather than the norm: when you had to look at the religion, caste, family background, and age of a possible partner who was to share your life (divorces were absolute stigma!) before hitching up, fall...

    I came into this not expecting much, but this was fascinating! I picked it up without reading the description, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the majority of this is based on psych studies. If you're interested in the psychology behind modern dating, I highly recommend. Definitl...

    Actual rating 4.5 stars ---------- Well I don't know what I was thinking when I picked this (audio)book up, but Modern Romance wasn't it. I really like this! It was super interesting and I feel like I learned a lot about the history of romance and how it's changed with technology. B...

    "Modern Romance" straddles the line of being funny and serious. It doesn't commit (get the pun?) one way or the other, and so, falls flat on both fronts. This is especially unsatisfying as I love Aziz and his work. Perhaps it's with this high expectation and skewed notion of what this ...

    Omg what fucking yawnfest. I'm so pissed at how misleading the book description is. In it this book is called "hilarious". Can someone point me to the hilarious part in the book? All it got out of me was couple of giggles and a snort. DNF at 50%. I just want to say that I'm fan of Ans...

    One firm takeaway from all our interviews with women is that most dudes out there are straight-up bozos. My introduction to modern romance was abrupt and unexpected. I was back in New York for the holidays, drinking with a few friends, sipping and gulping the wonderful IPAs that I m...

    3.5 stars, but I rounded up, just because Aziz is hilarious. This was really a very interesting read. Obviously well researched and very insightful. It was funny, for me, reading about the way romance was done before the technology we have today and in modern times, because I we...

    As a single woman I feel like Aziz Ansari knows my pain. Yes I am single by choice ( not my choice, but still a choice) , He knows how unpleasant it is to stare impotently at a screen waiting for a message that never arrives ?we all have Tanya on our phones? The hours slouched by....

    InModern Romance, Ansari combines hisirreverent humor with cutting-edge social scienceto give us an unforgettable tour of our newromantic world. ?The world is available to us, but that may be the problem.? Fun fact: I actually started 2017 with this read, but at the t...

    Bravo to comic and actor Aziz Ansari for not writing just another memoir-by-someone-who?s-sorta-famous-but-hasn?t-lived-long-enough-to-really-warrant-one. I?ve read a number of them (good: Bossypants; okay: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?; abandoned: sorry, Lena Dunham). M...

    Startlingly inessential. Early on, Ansari makes a somewhat baffling statement that he felt compelled to write this book because there wasn't any other literature on modern dating culture-- a topic explored ad nauseum in newspaper thinkpieces, podcasts, and other disposable pop scien...
