This book is everything that I wanted Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance to be! A lot of the haters of this book are mad that it's not a self help book or guide to love, but it never professed to be those things. This book is a blend of anthropology and history of the evolution of modern dating. Though details of older dating rituals are briefly discussed, the book mainly focuses on the last century. It details how dating and marriage have changed in America to mirror our changing societal and gender roles, mostly in relation to a woman's space in the work place.

Loving this book was not laborious.
