Product description

Review

"William's funny, rueful and engaging book does provide a very handy guide to the fascinating enigma that is the twenty-something male psyche." --Daily Mail "The book has a great deal in common with the memoir-primer hybrid made popular by Alain de Botton - It functions as a sociological account of being young in the Noughties, offering reflections on Facebook, the 'lunch date', gender inequality, and the phrase 'fair game'." --Mail on Sunday "Disarmingly simple - Nicolson is a likeable, self-deprecating narrator." --Observer

"A lighthearted tale of love and market forces." --- New York Journal of Books, David E. Spiro

Format: Hardcover
Good idea but it doesnt work! Just seems like a bloke rambling on about bits here and there in his life. How he study a bit of economics, is a bit posh, has had a date and relationship or few. Makes you curious by reading the blurb and seeing the premise but ultimately it drags on to the end. No insight that you will find actually useful in your love life. Not duct tape to mend a broken a relation or heart. I'm disappointed- it could have been so much more.

Just finished reading this, loved it. Short, funny and couldn't put it down until I found out what happened to old Will and his rollercoaster love-life. Takes me back to my one module of economics I did at Uni but makes learning about these theories way more fun as he applies them to things like bluffing being an expert on wine or trying not to be a jealous boyf. Thoroughly enjoyable - would recommend to anyone looking for a fun read on economics and/or dating!

It's undeniably an amusing book but unfortunately it's riddled with grammatical errors which I found irritating and a bit of let down. If you're going to the trouble of publishing a book, at least have it peer reviewed for grammatical mistakes!

Overall I enjoyed it, he has some funny ideas and it's a nice light read.
