Nev Shulman is beloved. He is the host of the widly popular TV series Catfish which investigates online relationships to determine whether they are based on truth or fiction (spoiler: it's almost always fiction).



Nev has become the Dr. Drew of online dating for millenials; his fans view him as the ultimate authority on this subject matter. Nev's clout in this are springs from his own experience with a deceptive online romance, about which he made a critically acclaimed 2010 documentary (also called Catfish). In thaty film Nev coined the term 'catfish' to refer to someone who creates a false online persona to reel someone into a romantic relationship. The meme spread rapidly.



Now Nev takes his investigation to the page, providing readers with an essential roadmap to better connect their digital personas with their true selves. Peppered throughout with Nev's personal stories, this book will explore relationships in the era of social media. Specifically the book will tackle:



-what motivates catfish


-why people fall for a catfish


-how one can avoid being decieved


-online accountability


-Nev's rules for dating


-how to connect authentically with people over the the internet


-how to turn an online relationship into a real life relationship, and much more.



Nev will delve deeply into the complexities of dating in a digital age, and continue the cultural dialogue his show has begun about how we interact with each other through social media versus in person - specifically in relation to millenials, who have never known a world without Facebook.



Nev has his finger on the pulse of today's youth. He understand how they interact with each other and what they're looking for. Nev will explore the pressing issue of connectivity which is plaguing young people's relationships with each other, and he will provide the advice his fans have been desperately seeking.

Review:
"Nev is a great philosopher of the internet and thereby a critical voice for our generation. Whether or not you're a Catfish fan, In Real Life is a must-read and shows us the opportunities and pitfalls that are part of the digital era. Nev makes it plain and simple: the power of the keyboard is now mightier than the sword."--Matthew Segal, founder of OurTime.org

"IN REAL LIFE is so much more than a book about online dating. It's about self-acceptance and being true to yourself in a world where you're influenced by so many people over the internet."--Jonathan Bennett, host of MTV's Copycat

"What I find most exciting about IN REAL LIFE is how it explores the Internet's impact on our perception of gender and sexuality, and how we portray our digital selves to the world to that end. As a fellow millennial, I'm constantly trying to adapt to how the digital age is molding our ideas of love and relationships. In Real Life does not attempt to define these ever-changing terms but instead works to understand them."--Kim Stolz, author of Unfriending My Ex

"Finally someone has written a smart and funny guide that helps young people navigate social media without letting it take over their lives."--Maude Apatow, actress and twitter personality

"Nev's book begins as a fun journey into the world of lying on the internet, but it extrapolates into the larger phenomenon of avatars -- everybody has one on social networks."--James Franco for Vice magazine

"The book is at once a memoir, a meditation on a truly unique phenomenon of the internet age, and a motivational address for anyone seeking virtual companionship. Schulman cautions his readers against lying on their social media profiles, and argues instead for improving "offline" life. "Embrace who you really are, both online and off" is the message at the heart of his book."--Publishers Weekly
