Editorial Reviews

Review

"I love this book. It’s inspired and funny and poignant. I plan to buy a copy for all my exes. And for all the women I've ever stared at wistfully across a room (sorry about that, by the way)."
—AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically

More About the Author

Hello. Ever since junior high, I wanted to be a writer--of novels or novelty books. I landed on novelty books. Novels are hard!

I like to think of myself as an aphorist. What do you like to think of me as? What do you like to think of you as?

I've been teaching freshman composition for almost fifteen years, somehow. (This bio is dedicated to all the Adjunct Professors out there.)

You can interact with these books, or let them wash over you. Maybe it's that way with everything.

More of a good coffee table book, then a good bed time read.

I read the web site long before the book came out, but bought the book anyway. The thing I love about it is that you can dip into it on any page and find something poignant that you can relate to it -- even if you can't relate to it. Things like "If I had known I was going to meet the woman you would leave me for when we stopped by your office, I would have put on makeup." You could do worse than read several hundred examples of what we did or didn't do for love...

Humanity at its finest. I saw much of myself and exes in this book, and if you miss your ex, dont text that jerk, just highlight the parts in this book that remind you of them and keep it around to remind yourself why they are exactly that!

Dear Old Love was an excellent purchase. It's written in quote form from past lovers, some ex's and some still very much in love. I found it heartwarming and beautiful. And I have to admit - it reminded me as to why I dated some of my ex's and why I broke up with others. Definitely what I needed - a chance to see how others feel about relationships and know that I wasn't alone.
Definitely worth the price and the read. I finished it in one quick night.

You'll either laugh until you ache or ache until you laugh. That's because this book touches both the funny bone and the heart. How? Through a slipstream of truths. Small truths. Big truths. Truths you may not have recognized before, or perhaps you know all too well. Does this all sound a bit contradictory? No more contradictory than love itself. Face it. Love is crazy. Which is probably why it causes people to say and do such funny things. Many of which are hilariously captured here in Dear Old Love.

Glad I read this book. Sure, it's anecdotal, but it has the truth in plain words. And it will make you smile...though I'm still not sure if I want to says goodbye completely to my old loves.

This is a funny and quirky collection of little notes! Some are sweet, some are far from sweet, and some are just down right wrong! I take it with us on drives into the city and we'll read some of them for laughs. Some are kind of crude and I don't care for that but it for the most part it is cute and funny.
