BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
“When I was twenty-five years old, it came to my attention that I had never had a girlfriend. At the time, I was actually under the impression that I was in a relationship, so this bit of news came as something of a shock.”
Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down each of the girls he had tried to date since middle school and asked them straight up: What went wrong?
The results of Josh’s semiscientific investigation are in your hands. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), and a misguided “grand gesture” at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love-or at least a girlfriend-in all the wrong places.
Poignant, relatable, and totally hilarious, this memoir is for anyone who has ever wondered, “Is there something wrong with me?”
(Spoiler Alert: the answer is no.)
Oh wow. Wshos might be the funniest book I’ve read this year. I admit that I’m not really big on reading Non Fiction books BUT I do enjoy them. Especially ones like this. There’s just something so special about reading memories that happened in a person.. for real. Even if those are embarrassing moments. (More reason to read them tbqh) And even thought the author is older than me and not in the same species with me.. I found this book surprisingly relatable.
And maybe because this is about watching too much FRIENDS, but the author totally reminds me of Chandler.
I don’t know, they’re just both funny and awkward and adorable.
Oh and what am I talking about. There’s NO SUCH THING AS ‘TOO MUCH’ FRIENDS.
Anyway, the book was funny and absolutely life changing.. in a way. I mean, maybe not in dramatic sense, but this book will really make you think. About how you see yourself. About your views in dating. About stuff that really matters.
And lastly, the author is really admirable. Even though he is, as people will say, different.. to have a light and inspiring spirit like his is truly admirable. And I’m really glad that he shared these embarrassing but totally life lesson worthy memories of him to his readers. I really suggest you guys should give this book a go.
