Verdict This book will be of interest to those who use, or are curious about, online dating services and anyone interested in relationship patterns in general. Slater’s insights into the various ways relationships are mediated by technology, especially within the realm of online dating services, prove a fascinating read.—Ryan Nayler, Native Counselling Svcs. of Alberta

This is a really compelling read. It's not the first book about how technology impacts human behavior. But it's the first one that under-promises and over-delivers. Slater doesn't claim more than he can demonstrate, and his ideas about how online-dating affects relationships are apt and recognizable to anyone who's ever taken the plunge. Deeply reported and terrifically told, the personal stories he gets from both users and online-dating industry executives are riveting in their detail. "Love in the Time of Algorithms" should be read by anyone who wants to understand the modern landscape of relationships and romance in a time of heavy reliance on technology.
