This A very cool, visually appealing book that tells the pre- and post-experiment details not found on the blog. This wasn't an every page thing, but it did bug me when it occurred because I felt like I was missing something.
I absolutely loved the blog and I remember devouring it daily, along with my feeling and interpretations at the time. Like the blog, the book is graphically stunning, incredibly insightful and just a sheer pleasure to read or just flick thorough for the quirky artsy bits. I haven't read a physical book in such a long time and I must say I love even its smell, haha.
Definitely the kind of book that makes my shelves prettier. If you're wondering whether you should buy it after already reading the I absolutely loved the blog and I remember devouring it daily, along with my feeling and interpretations at the time. If you're wondering whether you should buy it after already reading the blog, I would definitely recommend it; if not for the creativity, for sure for the end part about how they dealt with this project after its completion.
This was a mostly enjoyable and quick read, but I can definitely see it working better as a blog. I never read the blog, but I found that while I was interested in the experiment, the day to day minutiae bothered me as I was binge-reading the book.
Also, the design of the book was really cool, but also really impractical - It was difficult to read. Some of the text is sideways and her story doesn't always line up with his story, so you end up having to go forward and back several pages to This was a mostly enjoyable and quick read, but I can definitely see it working better as a blog.

Jessica Walsh And Timothy Goodman On Life After "40 Days Of Dating" A new book chronicles the designers' viral dating experiment, and the aftermath.

Looking to break their bad dating habits and develop some better ones, friends Jessica Walsh and Author: Chandra Steele.
Some of the text is sideways and her story doesn't always line up with his story, so you end up having to go forward and back several pages to understand what's going on. Many of the images were cut off, too. I read the blog, but was very excited to read the book. Will suggest, if you plan to read this book buy it in print it is definitely a coffee table book.
I was really excited to see what happened at the end. However, I learned it from Instagram because I couldn't wait. I'm a big fan of the blog and the works of Jessica Walsh and Tim Goodman so it wasn't much of stretch that I would love this book.
How do I get a refund on the View 2 comments. This was an addictive read, you can read the main bits on the blog however it is a beautiful book! Just because of that and all the extra bits is worth it all the way :. I am a sucker for a good RomCom. This pretty much hits that spot in a very nonfiction way. As a story, it has all the moments one wants: hope, longing, adventure, drama, and personability. I found myself reflecting on my own relationships and how I've occupied the spaces of boyfriend and lover, as well as friend.
The design work is pretty phenomenal, which, unfortunately, is where this book falls short. It cuts into a lot of the deign work when turning to the next page, which is frustrating when I am a sucker for a good RomCom.
It cuts into a lot of the deign work when turning to the next page, which is frustrating when the writing and art communicate with one another. I wish the editors had planned the page breaks better. This book feels much like a supplement to the website. The Website shows more graphic works and motion graphics that aren't shown or can't be shown in the book.
I found myself reading from the book while being on the website to experience the full impact of the art work. All in all, it's a great book to read and find more insight to the before and after of the project. As well, to relate to the ups and downs of love. I had a lot more criticisms about the concept when I was younger - that it was self-absorbed, that it was obviously a publicity stunt - but now that I'm a designer around their age, I have a lot more empathy for what they went through and the emotional turmoil that comes with opening yourself up to vulnerability, honesty, and publicity.
For this reason, I was surprised to find myself much more engaged with the content and story, and I was much more interested in what happened to the two of them I had a lot more criticisms about the concept when I was younger - that it was self-absorbed, that it was obviously a publicity stunt - but now that I'm a designer around their age, I have a lot more empathy for what they went through and the emotional turmoil that comes with opening yourself up to vulnerability, honesty, and publicity.
For this reason, I was surprised to find myself much more engaged with the content and story, and I was much more interested in what happened to the two of them after the experiment when they were free from arbitrary rules and structure.
Unfortunately, the design and structure of the book layout was not up to par, requiring several page flips back and forth to get the chronology right. It did not do justice to the designs as it should have. Honestly, the two star is a bit generous for having read this on the Kindle but I did really enjoy the project when they put it out in This just They're both designers and they make super cool things but when it's grainy or impossible to see because your Kindle won't blow it up They also filled the book with what felt like nonsense simply to have enough to write a book, which was disappointing.
I don't care about Honestly, the two star is a bit generous for having read this on the Kindle but I did really enjoy the project when they put it out in I don't care about tweet-length stories about what love is or your first date from completely random sources with no description of who they are or why I would care in relation to the story.
I enjoyed the "what happened after" but then that also abruptly stopped so there was no following the journey. Just Meh. Interesting Interesting read. I think they definitely got way too Freudian in explaining why things were the way they were, which wouldn't be a problem if all of Frued's work wasn't debunked.

I stumbled upon this book by accident at the library and it was so insightful!
I recently went through a break up a couple of months ago and this book was really relatable. I found myself relating to Jessica and what she went through but it was refreshing to see a Male perspective.
I never think about what the other person might perceive things and Tim was insightful. I definitely learned from their experience and more about love and relationships which I hope to take with me in the future. For being designers, you'd think they'd be more mindful of making an accessible format. Then again, maybe that's the issue; they focused much too hard on design rather than functionality. If you're looking for a nice captivating romantic non-fiction book, read this instead!
Short read, definitely worth giving it a shot if you're hesitating This book was right up my alley! I like experiments and relationships and to read and think about how people react in different situations. It was interesting to read about the different female and male perspectives and to see what the end result of the experiment was! Loved the experiment and loved the book! Definitely the design is the best part of it.
Although I kind of suffer while reading each day's challenge and emotions it was the perfect book to read and question my love patterns, surely everyone's got one.
Very interesting. Loved it! Completely changed some thoughts on love, dating, and uncertainty. Really made me think. The way the book is designed fonts, color choices, sizes, etc. The content of it is kind of interesting, but I preferred the graphics. Nice concept, nice graphics mostlyway too long, rather heteronormative, and I just couldn't care about either of them.
May 03, books. I remember staying up late one night to read the journal entries on the website. Despite the obsession to read everything I could find about the experiment that night, it somehow slipped my mind until I stumbled upon a post or was it an article online saying that the duo were SOME SPOILERS AHEAD although it may not be considered spoilers given what's been available on the internet after the book's release I had read about the experiment when a friend posted a link about it on Facebook.
Despite the obsession to read everything I could find about the experiment that night, it somehow slipped my mind until I stumbled upon a post or was it an article online saying that the duo were publishing a book about their journey.
I knew I wanted for sure that I wanted to read the book. After a few weeks of exploring options to purchase it, I finally bought one copy from Amazon.
It took me a few weeks after getting the book to read it. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. I also had a hard time resisting flipping to the back because I was so curious about the ending!
In the end I just had to know the ending before going through all 40 days worth of journal entries. That sort of affected the way I read the second half of the journal entries, so for those of you who haven't read the book, please try to resist the temptation to flip to the back!
The ending was a bit unexpected and I wish Jessica shared more about her experience with Zak, like how exactly they met, the dates they had, and how she was feeling considering that she met Zak within a very short time from the end of the experiment Book 2 perhaps?
The illustrations in the book are great and make the book even more entertaining and colourful.
40 Days of Dating: An Experiment
Unfortunately some of the illustrations got cut off because of the formatting of the book. While the day journal entries benefit from being put side by side, the post-experiment entries were a bit hard to read because Jessica and Tim's entries ended on different pages and the dates were not synchronised. For the most part of the day journal entries, I read from the left to the right Jessica's entry, then Tim's entryand only towards the end did I realise that it was more interesting to mix the order up once in a while so Tim's entry first, then Jessica's.
Funny how Tim and Jessica could perceive a date or event differently. I really enjoyed reading the book and could see myself flipping through it again in future. I'd already read the blog but knew that I wanted more.
Jan 20, by Jessica Walsh, Timothy Goodman Jessica Walsh 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since.5/5(1). Timothy Goodman. Did you see Jessica today? Yes. What did y'all do together? We both teach Wednesday nights, so we went out to dinner after class to the Fat Raddish.

And boy, did I get more I find myself a little more each time I read through the experiment: much like most other women, I was biased to Jessie, because her story was my story, while Tim gave me an insight as to what my exes have probably thought. But the second time around, I identified much more with Tim. This came as somewhat of a shock seeing as the first and second read through were maybe two weeks apart; nothing major had happened I'd already read the blog but knew that I wanted more.

But even more so, I hope this would strike a chord with the man who broke my heart. We're both on both sides. Also, the layout of this book is so genius I can't even describe it.
It perfectly matches how my brain processes information and didn't feel complicated at all which I know plenty of my friends would complain about if they would ever even pick up a book. This is an amazing study in sociopsychology, and I will carry it with me for the rest of my life. I'm also grateful I read it while single; I'm pretty sure my analyses of this experiment would make any man run for the hills.
Earlier this year, I found out that it was published into a book, which is nice. So I got myself a copy of the ebook.
Overall, I think the concept works better on the website than the ebook. The formatting is sometimes off, and I can be nitpick-y about this on the ebook, at least; I can't say for sure how the printed book looks like. You also can't view the videos duhwhich are an excellent part of the project. However, I did like how there are additional things like the interviews with both Jess and Tim, and other people at the beginning of the book that you won't see on the site. Still, the core of the project is still there.
Did you learn anything new about Timothy?
40 days of dating timothy goodman
He told me that when his mother got pregnant, his father made her choose between keeping the child or staying with him. It seems to me his dating style could result from this. He breaks off relationships before they get too serious to avoid the risk of abandonment.
We all have our issues and cope with life differently. Did you learn anything new about yourself? I heart my dad!
My parents married at a young age, and have a successful marriage. I think I have have some sort of guard up preventing myself from seeing Tim as anything more than a very close friend. As his relationship patterns are the opposite of mine, a part of me fears that if we were to really date, one of us might wind up getting hurt.
We also have a tight group of friends, and I think we are both afraid to compromise that. Is there anything that you want to do differently?
In my work and other cts of life, I am uncomfortable with comfortable. But when it comes to relationships, I do seek secure relationships that are clearly defined.

I know I should relax and open myself up to vulnerability, so I can learn to enjoy dating more in the future. Additional comments?
Tim insisted on being a gentleman and paying for dinner, which was very sweet of him, but I want to get the next one. We both teach Wednesday nights, so we went out to dinner after class to the Fat Raddish. Jessie brought me a little care package of stuff to jokingly get me through the next 40 days. And she remembered that I like Clif Bars! Did you learn anything new about Jessica? We talked about our families more than we ever did before. Earlier in the day I sent a little note to Jessie by messenger.
I wanted to honor our project together with something lighthearted. No, not yet. Well, she and I ended up talking about this Forty Days of Dating project the entire time. Not exactly what I was anticipating.
She was very excited. She thinks Jessie and I are going to fall in love. She texted me later that night:. We went to our first couples therapy session together. I go to therapy on my own, and have always enjoyed it.
Life passes by so quickly, and I like having an hour a week to reflect in an attempt to learn and grow from it all. She asked us straight away if Tim and I were attracted to each other. After some awkward glances, we both admitted that we do find each other attractive. Tim immediately rattled out numerous reasons:. He loves the freedom of the single life. He sees it as a weakness that I love love. I learned early on that money does not make me happy. There are actually statistics that show that salary increase only make people happier until basic needs of food and water are met.
Tim seems extremely overwhelmed by the idea of having to see me every day for this project. He almost had a panic attack when I sent him a list of date ideas for the next week! I do love to plan things and have a schedule.
However, I also greatly enjoy spontaneity. So far so good. In therapy we talked about how I am extremely picky about who I date. However, when I do decide I really like someone, I am quick to jump into a relationship in order to test it out and see how it goes.
I become extremely invested in people and things that I care about, which can cause me to fall for someone quickly. Tim thinks I should be more cautious. Tim is right, I do love love. Apparently, the feeling of falling in love is wired in us to help the survival of our species.
While sexual desire exists to make sure we pop out babies, the feelings of love exists to promote bonding and pairing between mates to increase the survival rate of the children. Chemicals like dopamine and norepinephrine are released when in love.
The chemicals increases energy, increases focus, and helps make us feel fucking awesome all the time. In fact, research shows brain activity in love is almost identical to our brain activity on cocaine. We went to our first therapy session together. I think it was a bit soon for this, but our therapist Jocelyn wanted to have a consultation first.
Why are you doing this project?
