Top critical review

I feel I ought to point out that the book contains the following statement:
"The fact that you are 'clever' or 'bright', have an IQ of 243 and probably went to a good university (being the type where you 'read' Law, or perhaps History, Philosophy, English, Classics, as opposed to one in which you 'did' Law) is of no significance. It is the romantic equivalent of telling someone on a date that your mum thinks you are good-looking".
It's possible that the author actually intended to suggest that the former attributes are more "romantic" than such a date might turn out to be, though it seems to me more likely that it's a whoopsy-daisy.
