Praise for Marry Him
"An unexpected delight. Lori Gottlieb offers herself up as Exhibit A-that's A for 'Alone'-in this unsparing exploration of the contemporary mating scene. Part cautionary memoir, part field study, her account of her own stalled search for a husband is honest and darkly comic...The truth isn't pretty, but it can be liberating."-The New York Times Book Review
"Marry Him shows women how to find true happiness when seeking love-by giving them a new way to look at the world. Gottlieb manages to be hilarious yet thought-provoking, light-hearted yet profound on the questions of: Why do we fall in love? What qualities really matter in a marriage? For what reasons do we make the decisions that affect our whole lives? Marry Him will set people talking for years."-Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
"Funny and relatable...anything but antiromance."-People Magazine
"A provocative pop culture treatise...Gottlieb encourages us to think through our own beliefs and unexamined assumptions."-The Chicago Tribune
"Part The Rules, part Malcolm Gladwellian sociopop, Marry Him...is surprisingly, unnervingly convincing."-O, The Oprah Magazine
