Review

"If you enjoy philosophy and are dating (or find the topic interesting), then by all means this is a book you would want to check out." ( Littleredrails.com , January 2011)

From the Back Cover

Speed dating, online dating, group blind dating, dating consultants… A booming dating industry is catering to an ever–increasing number of single adults in the twenty–first century, with the market for a mate now pulling in more than a billion dollars a year in the United States. So, how do we successfully attempt to navigate the dating minefield? Progressing from the first flirtatious moment of eye contact to the selection of a “mate,” Dating – Philosophy for Everyone  includes a number of playful yet relevant essays for anyone who has dated, is dating, or intends to date again. It offers fascinating philosophical explorations of topics such as: The taboos of dating and how to play the dating game Should science teach men how to attract women? The problem of having too much choice The vicissitudes of dating and mating are explored from a number of perspectives, all of which will help demystify coupling in the twenty–first century for those young daters just entering the fray, and those veterans returning to the game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the most tedious book I've ever read 19 May 2011
By J. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I know what the reader of this review will think: the title is hyperbole. Before you assume that, read the first 25-30 pages. It is excruciatingly painful to read even that much of this mind-numbingly boring book. Unless you enjoy a 25+ page discussion of what exactly qualifies as flirting, this isn't the book for you. I rarely give one star reviews, but this one deserves that rating.

I would urge any reader not to sour on philosophy books because this one is so bad. There are many good ones out there.
