Brian Donovan’s comic tale of his history with Internet dating might seem mean-spirited if the criticism weren’t, in large part, self-deprecating. Donovan, who’s written for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and Chapelle’s Show, mines the deep well of comedic gold that is Internet dating by going on an exorbitant amount of dates with all sorts of women - and a few that he couldn’t even be sure were women. Ax Norman delivers Donovan’s chronicles in a personal tone that feels both instructional and confessional. If you’re one of the millions of people who’ve experienced online dating for yourself, or if you’re a curious outsider, prepare yourself for an insider's look at the widely popular phenomenon and all of the insights into human relationships it provokes.
Forty million people in the US have tried Internet dating, which means 40 million people have probably gone on some pretty crappy dates. Not a Match: My True Tales of Online Dating Disasters is about one guy who experienced more than his fair share. Brian Donovan, a writer and comedian whose work has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR, and Chapelle's Show, has been on over 100 Internet dates in a genuine search for love and happiness.

I absolutely loved this book! Not only was the voice over artist incredible but the fallacies, hopeful triumphs and hard let downs of online dating were ones that I could understand. Great job!
There were a few parts where I laughed out loud. Would recommend to someone who is single and trying to date, or has their own stories to tell.
This book managed to be awkward and funny yet sweet as well - the author's bewilderment in some circumstances was hilarious. I have been on similar dates ...this book is worth it!
I am unable to not finish a book once I've started, and this one has tested me more than any other, despite its short length. The reader is terrible, the story is terrible. Not funny at all. Even free it wasn't worth the time.
