But what was impressive about it for me was that the author feels to be very familiar with this strange world, and there is a genuine compassion coming from her to all the people who are struggling to find love and specially for those, who are lost in the jungle of internet-dating trying to find it.
I felt the advice there to be practically orientated, which is new for me in this type of litterarture, not that I know a lot about dating-guides. But there was this good professional, responsible attitude, which I hope reaches readers who are bravely plunging in to the depths of all those dating-sites.
My initial image of a dating-guide book is one that will give the reader a boost of false sense of self-esteem , and teach some cheap trics to lure the opposite sex. I was glad to see how free this one was from all of that. It's kinda operating in a totally different level. Also the experience and expertiese of the author shines through. The subject is something they have obviously spent a lot of time around both personally and professionally, and that shows in the writing.
I think the readers who are running away their problems in the excitement of the dating-scene will find some of the raised questions quite intimidating. So it could come with some kind of disclaimer, like: the reader of the book would be ideally someone, who is truly searching something meaningful, and is conciously willing to make an effort to make it work.
I was thinking in some part of the book, that considering all the advice about privacy and not giving away too much too soon, the writer is quite generous of the details in her personal life. But as a reader, I was very captivated by those passages, and they surely made the subject come alive and have a down-to-earth human aspect to balance off the neuroscientific side of the book.
