Slater attempts to put meaning to the new era dating scene taking place on the Internet stage. He does a good job of tactfully retracing the history of the "industry," and provides a little insight into the successes (and tribulations) experienced by the "customers," but falls short of finding any kind of conclusive imperative on the implications for society. Basically, if you're wanting a business-oriented history lesson on a few dating-focused Internet ideas, this is the book for you. If you're wanting a deep sociological analysis of the decision to meet and date people online, you're better off just asking people who use the sites you're curious about (or better yet: trying them yourself).
