From Publishers Weekly
Vitzthum has left no stone unturned in the world of online dating, from her love/hate relationship with the hipster-oriented Nerve.com to the facts behind the "science" of matching sites like eHarmony.com and Match.com and the musings of a charming, well-educated, British Craigslist addict. While the book contains both fairy tales and horror stories, Vitzthum's case studies and interviews fall somewhere in the middle, a reflection of her own ambivalence about this world of "people-shoppers." More of a meditation than a guide, this volume combines research and the author's personal experiences into a genuinely funny and informative read. (Feb. 1)
