This is the second book I have read by Chris Hill and it is an unputdownable page turner.
The story itself without giving too much away is about a journalist who has issues with making himself appear attractive and interesting to the opposite sex and so he resorts to a website called PUA for dating tips. What results is quite a comical romp into the world of dating for Rob, a junior employee in his firm.
Many of the characters did make me laugh in particular Crazy Al, Rob himself was a bit of a plonker but saying that in a nice way. Many of the women in his office scared me never mind Rob. Loved the twist at the end ! I actually kept wondering after that last chapter whether I had missed some vital clues about it earlier in the book.
