Product Description

Review

"The book is at once a memoir, a meditation on a truly unique phenomenon of the internet age, and a motivational address for anyone seeking virtual companionship. Schulman cautions his readers against lying on their social media profiles, and argues instead for improving "offline" life. "Embrace who you really are, both online and off" is the message at the heart of his book." "Publishers Weekly""

Book Description

From the host of MTV's No.1 show Catfish comes the definitive guide to connecting with people authentically in today's digital world.

I enjoyed the Documentary and I like the show. This book is luminating and covers some of the things that end up on the editing floor of the documentary and tv show. I admire Nevs courage to divulge is issues and flaws, some of the thing I would never ever guess just looking at him all chipper and happy on tv. Its goes to show we are all only human and to never judge..well a book by its cover! After reading this book I realised I have not onlybeen in one catfish relationship but a number! Even a man I reconnected with who was in my school, we added each other on fb and after seeing how he blossomed from a nerd to a hottie, So even people you may have know personally can catfish you, they can big up their life etc, but be total frauds! I would recommend it, its luminating and honestly, if my friends and family (real friends that is) were not scattered all over (i move alot) i would have left facebook after reading it, but instead I had a brutal cull. even of people I do know and never interact with me and I have sat and editing all my privacy settings on pictures and the public/non friend views. alot of people just want to be in the loop of your life and never reply to inbox messages, so don't be afraid to delete people :-) But yeah, buy it and read it :-)

A fascinating insight into the world of "life online". Deep and thought provoking throughout. If nothing else it Will open your eyes to the shallowness of social media as opposed to real life face to face contact. You cannot help but be changed by reading this book.

Nev Shulman is as honest as he is charming, eloquent and candid. Laying out his character honestly and reading about how he's grown from the brattish bull headed man-child he once was into a more mature, respectful adult was interesting to digest to say the least. As an enhancement of his popular 'Catfish: The Movie' and 'Catfish:The TV Show', the book works well, but also reads well independently. I consumed this book greedily in one sitting on the day it came out on Kindle. I urge you to do the same. Or, you know, buy the hard copy. I hear he is giving out hugs to those who do. I didn't get one. The git.

I really like Nev Schulman and his work. I really enjoyed the documentary he made with his brother and his brother's best friend, Catfish, and I continue to enjoy Catfish: The TV Show with Nev and Max. So since this was released I've been interested in picking it up and hearing Nev's personal opinions on social media and how people live online. It turns out I didn't agree with much of what he said, though it was very interesting to see his perspective since he's perceived as something of royalty as far as the use of social media is concerned.

Nev comes across as very anti-social media, which I get considering the experiences he's had and the fact that his job consists of finding people who use social media to lie to other people, but he's very, very insistent that social media is bad for everyone. I totally disagree. Over and over again I read about how all interactions on social media are shallow, and that if you've never met a person in real life then that connection you think you have? Not real. That person you're close to? The relationship is a farce. Like I said, I wholeheartedly disagree. Since my later teenage years, I've been online. I've had 'real life' friends and 'internet friends'. Some of them I never met, but did I still consider them friends? Of course. I had very real conversations with them, and I still speak to them now, years later, even though we've moved on with our lives and we're not as close anymore. I, like the majority of people who use social media, had a happy balance of time I was online, and time I was offline. I travelled around the UK meeting up with friends I'd met online (safely and in public places) and making some incredible memories. I met so many new people through these 'internet friends'.

Whizzed through this book in a mere day and a half, just couldn't put it down! Being an avid catfish follower since I stumbled across the documentary a few years back this offers a great Insight into our lives both offline and online, amazingly inspiring advice and a few giggles of disbelief at Nev's old shenanigans! Very highly recommended whether you're a fan of the show or not.

Read this in just one day as I couldn't put it down. Didn't know how it would go, if I'd like it or not. Its an interesting insight into both the motives behind the catfish and also into Nev's life and his catfish experience. Great follow up to Catfish the documentary and a must for all catfish TV series fans!

An easy read, a nice book, you get to see a side of Nev that's not on TV! Really enjoyed reading it. It's a partial guide to managing digital love, interspersed with personal anecdotes. Very enjoyable.

Well-written and more importantly, very honest book. You can tell Nev was talking about his own experiences. It's important that we all take a step back and start enjoying each other's company rather then spend countless of hours on social media. Nothing frustrates me more than someone constantly on their phone when we are out having a dinner. Put it down and try enjoying the conversation...
