Book review: Modern Romance

Dear friends,

This book provides a fun and interesting examination of how we form relationships in the modern world of texting, online dating, and hookup culture. Aziz uses his trademark humor to compare current dating culture with past practices like arranged marriage or marrying someone from your small hometown circle. Surprisingly well researched too.


I read the physical book, and also listened to the audiobook. The audiobook was especially fun, listening to Aziz “perform” his own writing felt like being at a live stage show.

Recommended if you are interested in a nonfiction book that is light, fun, and relatively short.  Also if you are interested in popular culture, and how new technologies are changing our expectations about love, marriage, sex, and romance.

Happy reading!
