Judge the book by its title. It is indeed about science. The book often reads (and sounds) like an academic paper.
However, Tashiro does a great job keeping it all interesting, and he does an even better job making the information relevant to the reader.
The narration is high quality.
I definitely recommend this book.
That list....yea thats non existent after this book. My standards are now based around logic instead of looks, or being taller than me, or making a ton of money, or being so remarkably different than me that they add something special to my life that I cannot. God, none of that crap matters! That's how i feel about it 3 months after finishing it. It still makes sense.
Kind of dry, but a great listen. Lots of relate-able stories about others.
Great book that gives a gery pratical framework for bettee understanding yourself and what drives your behaviour and how to assess potential partners.
Started a bit slow and theoretical but is definitely worth it. Chapter 8 provided a framework that allowed me to instantly tly see myself and my wife's behaviour and understand the underlying dynamics of our behaviour, the way no counselling session ever has. This will truly make a difference in my life. I recommend to every single person and its still useful for people like me that are in a relationship to better understand ourselves and partners and to improve the relationship dynamics.
The negative sounding "settle" has such a different meaning now. Hearing the numbers on just how few people meet all of a person's ideal mate criteria was eye opening. I'm still sticking to the single life, but still very interesting listen.
This book helped straighten out a lot of dating/relationship confusion for me. Sometimes I need processes and data for my big decisions - this book provided both.
