Common Knowledge



This is more 3.5

I really like Aziz Ansari and I am fascinated by dating so I was really interested in reading this book. As a person who met my husband using an Internet dating page back in 1999 before this was common, I was really interested in how the dating scene has evolved. Ansari does not disappoint in this regard and serves up lots of data and anecdotes about the modern dating scene around the globe.

What did disappoint was the humor. It felt heavy handed when in print and I can't help but wonder if this might be a better audio book.

Overall it's worth reading if you are interested in technology & dating but I'd lean towards suggesting the library instead of a purchase.

Smartly written; humor gags pretty limited despite main author's main occupation (a good thing); thought-provoking facts; decently organized. I give Ansari props for this work.

Entertaining and educational! I'm not single or actively dating, but I was inspired to pick this up because some of my friends were having issues in their love lives, so I bought this on a whim. Turns out, I learned a lot about today's dating world, and handy information in the event I find myself on the market again in the future.

There's a lot of truth spoken here, and not all of it is pretty. I've never seen Aziz Ansari's standup performances, but I enjoyed his brand of humor in this book and will definitely check him out now. Well done! I would recommend this to my friends, whether they're single or involved in a relationship.… (more)

Personally, I really liked this book, because it did a great job summarizing intricacies of dating today. Aziz did a great job researching how dating landscape has changed in Japan, Argentina and other countries. Texting, sexting, tinder and etc. all these topic have been covered in this book. I immensely enjoyed the conclusion of the book - concise, not too heavy, with bit of Aziz' personal humor.
