Review: ‘Dataclysm’ by Christian Rudder

4/5 stars

This book is fun, easy-to-read and absolutely brilliant.

I found it because Aziz Ansari mentioned it in his “Modern Love” book.

Christian Rudder uses data to make REALLY interesting points about the perils of online dating. He does so by taking raw numbers and concepts that are way above the average reader’s head and bringing them down to earth with funny explanations and cool charts that are easy to follow.

Some parts were so funny I have them bookmarked, and sometimes I pull the book out to talk to my friends about it. A great party trick!

I’d definitely recommend it if you are fascinated with online dating and the way romantic relationships have changed over the years.
