Eric Muller has been trying to hack the girlfriend problem his whole life. But his attempts to decode women - including a journal of 'research' about the girls in his high school class that fell into the wrong hands, with catastrophic results - only confirm that he's better at programming computers than interacting with human beings. By 2002, Eric is a Silicon Valley millionaire. He's managed to coax girls into bed with overpriced cocktails, ironic remarks, and carefully timed intimacies. But hiding his insecurities behind wit and empathy gets lonely, and true love remains beyond his grasp. So when he falls for Maya Marcom, a beautiful and fiercely opinionated young journalist, and - miraculously - she falls for him too, he's in uncharted territory. But his perfect new girlfriend's past is troubled by something dark and unresolved that sends Eric's obsessive mind spiraling into confusion and doubt. Can he reconcile his need for order and logic with the mystery and chaos of love?

A first novel about a youngish techie guy who has created a dot–com startup that makes him a millionaire when he sells it. He’s saddled with a father who has get rich quick schemes doomed to failure. He meets a young woman where his lack of social skills collide with her considerable hang ups. It’s often very funny and very likeable.
