Review

Advance Praise for "Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Economics I Learned From Online Dating"
Lori Gottlieb, "New York Times" bestselling author, "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough"--
"Economists may not be known for their romantic expertise, but Oyer explains the ins and outs of online dating with such clarity, humor, and scientific prowess that I'm guessing many marriages will result from his book. A hilarious, thought-provoking, must-read manual for anybody who wants to find The One and learn why love and the economy make for highly entertaining bedfellows."
Sam Yagan, cofounder, OkCupid, and CEO, Match.com--
"I thought I knew a lot about online dating and a lot about economics, too. But after reading this book, I now know a lot more about both (and a bunch of other things, as well). The application of economic principles to something everyone has experience with--dating--will help readers figure out how to behave in any market."
Alvin E. Roth, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences--
"'Brave and funny' is an unusual thing to say about an introduction to economic thinking, but the description fits both Paul Oyer and his book."
