Seth Baumgartner just had the worst day of his life.

His girlfriend dumped him (at Applebee's), he spied his father on a date with a woman who is not his mother (also at Applebee's!), and he lost his fourth job of the year. It's like every relationship he cares about is imploding, and he can't figure out what's going on.

To find answers, Seth decides to start an anonymous podcast called The Love Manifesto, exploring what love is, why love is, and why we're stupid enough to keep going back for more. Things start looking up when Seth gets a job at a golf club with his hilarious and smut-minded best friend, Dimitri, and Dimitri's sister, Audrey. With their help, Seth tracks down his father's mystery date, hits the most infamous bogey in the history of golf, and discovers that sometimes love means eating the worst chicken-salad sandwich you can ever imagine.

Listener Opinions

    " A book so full of 2010 pop culture, this novel feels more like a blog or an issue of people magazine, but it's a cute book, realistic fiction, with a sweet love story and the worst chicken salad sandwich in the world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 2/5/2014

    " Sort of funny, sort of nice to watch the characters grow up, but there is nothing more boring than reading about people playing golf. The description makes a big deal out of the Seth's podcasting, but for every page of podcast, there's about three more of golf. Snore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 2/2/2014

    " I found this at a Barnes & Noble when I was on vacation last summer and it looked really good. But it didn't live up to my expectations. I guess most of the problem was that it was from a guy's point of view. Normally, I'm not opposed to that (sometimes they're really good, like Caleb from Leaving Paradise), but something about this one didn't click with me. Seth whined about his ex-girlfriend the whole time and generally mucked everything up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 1/23/2014

    " I can only listen to so much whining and golf talk. It did, however, have twist at the end that I wasn't expecting, which I appreciated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drea | 1/23/2014

    " This was an audio verison. Def a good boy book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libraryangel | 1/22/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was real and heart felt....more to come.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grecia Lopez | 1/20/2014

    " I think this book was lacked some action in it. I sort of felt like it was all talk talk talk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/3/2013

    " Strong start, lackluster finish. . . not too impressed with this book overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 10/2/2013

    " Awesome audio book. I think Dimitri is my favorite best friend character ever. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 2/15/2013

    " I picked this book up really wanting to read it. I just couldn't get into. Maybe I will pick it up another time and try again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian DiNitto | 12/29/2012

    " I really connected with Seth. Great story about the tribulations of young love. Wonderful how he shares his feelings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Filippy | 10/25/2012

    " Completely unfair of me to say that I picked it up because it was said to me that it was alike to John Green book's and that I liked it mainly for that reason, but you can do a lot worse than John Green and this book is on par. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 4/30/2012

    " This was super cute. Very light, very fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaalomai | 4/14/2012

    " kinda boring for my tastes. seems a bit of a rip off on nick and noras infinite playlist too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aurora | 12/4/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. Not one of the best I've ever read (if the ending was strong I would have given this 4 stars), but it kept me interested throughout. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monica | 3/29/2011

    " I just couldn't finish this, great premise, but I just wanted it to be more about the music & less about the possible affair Seth's dad is having. Also the heartbreak just didn't seem dramatic enough, too much other day to day distractions taking place. "

    " I totally did not predict the ending. I liked the twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 1/26/2011

    " Enjoyed this a lot. Could have done with the best friend being maybe a little less immature and annoying, but I liked the pod-casting and other secondary characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/19/2010

    " I was hard not to love Seth and sympathize with his trials and tribulations w/love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 12/7/2010

    " This was fun. Golf, podcasting, girlfriends. Similar to Steven Goldman's "Two Parties, One Tux..." and Don Calame's "Swim the Fly" (etc.) "
