For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming hiscomic insight at modern romance, but for <i>ModernRomance</i>, the book, he decided he needed to takethings to ather level. He teamed up with NYUsociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massiveresearch project, including hundreds of interviewsand focus groups conducted everywhere fromTokyo to Bues Aires to Wichita. They analyzedbehavioral data and surveys and created their ownline research forum on Reddit, which drewthousands of messages. They enlisted the world sleading social scientists, including Andrew Cherlin, Eli Finkel, HelenFisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz, SherryTurkle, and Robb Willer. The result is unlike anysocial science or humor book we ve seen before. In <i>Modern Romance</i>, Ansari combines hisirreverent humor with cutting-edge social scienceto give us an unforgettable tour of our newromantic world.
