Happiness for Humans

P.Z. Reizin

ISBN 9780751566710

Don't tell anyone, but Jen is one of my favourite people.

(Machines aren't supposed to have favourites. Don't ask me how this has happened.)

Jen is sad. Aiden wants her to be happy. Simple? Except that Jen is a thirty-something woman whose boyfriend has just left her and Aiden is a very complicated, very expensive piece of software.

Aiden has calculated that Jen needs a man in her life for optimum wellbeing. And with the whole of the internet at his disposal, he doesn't have to look far to find a perfect specimen and engineer a meeting. But what, exactly, makes human beings happy? And can a very artificially- intelligent machine discover emotional intelligence in time to fix Jen's life?

The Author

P.Z. Reizin worked as a journalist and producer in newspapers, radio and television before turning to writing. He has been involved in several Internet start-up ventures, none of which went on to trouble Google, Twitter or Facebook. He is married with a daughter and lives in London.






Reviews, News & Interviews:

So funny, clever and timely. I loved it. Martha Kearney

Very clever and great fun. Kate Eberlen, bestselling author of Miss You

A sort of Shakespearean comedy of errors but instead of the gods there are rogue AIs seeking to meddle in the affairs of humans. Great fun. The Bookseller
