About the Author
Anna has been called Philadelphia's "most popular dating blogger" by Philadelphia Weekly. Her blog Shmitten Kitten is a cult phenomenon. She likes thinking, eating tacos, holding hands, and pondering whether she could eat a taco while still holding hands. Yes, she still lives with her parents, but she will lie and say she lives in South Philly if you happen to be a hot guy.

Readers of Shmitten and Shlooby Kitten will feel like they're reading a book written by someone they know personally, because Goldfarb holds nothing back in her blog, and that translates well into the book. I've recommended it to everyone I know, and I think I've done a good job of stalking the author on every social network to tell her how much I LOVE THIS BOOK (hey, it's me again). I only hope there will be a sequel!
I loved it all.
Her blog is one of the few web sites that has lasted the test of time. Other than absolutepunk.net or facebook, Its at the top of the list visited for the longest.
But back to this book - all I want to say is 'THANK YOU!" to her. Anna gives guys like me hope. Guys who aren't so tall (5'6) or who don't necessarily march to the beat of a normal drum. She give guys like me confidence. she sings our praises while other girls look over us to those less interesting and/or straight up taller. And does all of it in a hillarious well written way.
This book make me pine for the city of Philly, which I can only imagine over flows with girls like Anna.
After finishing the second half one early morning, I'd been taken on a Fellini-style journey as Anna experiences some embarrassing but realistic and well-intentioned dates while discovering John Coltrane and throwing around intertextuality like a cocaine hopped Woody Allen.
If nothing else, this serves as a guide on how to enjoy being you while learning to polish your rougher edges so you can have success with the ladies. As Molly Meldrum would say, do yourself a favour and buy this book now!
