A look at modern romance

I know, I know, I have been a bit lazy lately, at least when it comes to my blogging. But this is in part because I have devoted quite a substantial amount of time to reading.

One of the great books I finished recently is Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari, an Indian-American stand-up comic from New York. In this book, Ansari, together with the sociology professor Eric Klingenberg, investigates present-day single life, dating culture and relationships.

The book looks at many different aspects of modern day romance, as inevitably suggested by its title, covering almost all phases of a relationship you could find yourself in and analyses them with a tongue-in-cheek approach and a great deal of humor.

There are a lot of true observations in this work, but all are presented in a very light and fun to read way. Definitely a recommendation from my side!
