If there's anyone who knows about the darker side of online dating, it's Nev Schulman.

The 29-year-old rose to fame after his documentary Catfish, about an online flirtation of his which turned sour, became a breakout hit.

He followed it up with a series on MTV which followed similar stories of digital deception across America. Nev has become the go-to expert in online relationships for millennials, a generation who have never known a world without Facebook.

His clout in this area springs from his own experience which led him to coin the term 'catfish', referring to someone who creates a false online persona to reel someone into a romantic relationship.

Now Nev takes his investigation to the page. Woven throughout with Nev's personal stories this book explores relationships in the era of social media, delving deeply into the complexities of dating in a digital age and continuing the cultural dialogue his show has begun about how we interact with each other online. In IN REAL LIFE Nev explores the pressing issue of connectivity versus genuine connection which is plaguing our relationships with each other, and he provides the advice that his fans have been desperately seeking.
