Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

A self-described "former fat guy" pilots Generation Facebook through the rough sea of love and sex.

Blogger Greenspan mines his own dating pratfalls and triumphs to produce an array of lists to help the uninitiated, or the inept, snare that special someone. The guide takes the shape of the author's popular website 11points.com, covering essential territory such as how to know if he/she is really into you and the best and worst places to meet someone (the Internet is good, jury duty is bad). The author tackles sensitive subject matter with pragmatic indelicacy, providing useful chestnuts on how to keep a booty call from getting "messy," and reveals secrets for taking "amazing" nude photographs. Hint: Don't eat on shoot day, and get "very" aggressive on your blemishes, he writes. "The most important reason to fix all this stuff is because you must be confident for the photos. If you're embarrassed or (overly) self conscious and holding back, it'll show." The author's everyman quality is his best asset, connecting to the reader through a watered-down cocktail of confession, sarcasm and pop-culture references. After all, recognizing the animated series Voltron and Screech from Saved by the Bell is critical to the author's mission.

Hilarity is missing, but sincerity abounds.
