Alas, technology tempts us with the potential for genuine interaction. The text messages and voice-mails Ragsdale receives are also a form of one-way traffic, flavored less by the give-and-take of personal interaction and more a form of self-engagement.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? In October , Jeff Ragsdale, a down-and-out actor and stand-up comedian, posted a flyer around Lower Manhattan, asking people to call him if they wanted to talk.
Jeff spoke to as many people as he could, answering his phone all day long. Here are the conversations, texts, and voicemails of a particular moment in time—a hilarious, dark, intimate portrait of the way we live now. Read more Read less.

He just went through a bad breakup, has essentially no career and feels like he is all alone in the world. He gets the brilliant idea to post flyers with his number announcing that he is lonely and to call him.
This book is excerpts from those calls. The book is disjointed and mainly texts about sex. While the idea is great,, the book is flawed. Too little raw emotion and meaningful conversations. I expected the ones calling him crazy, prank calls, etc. That was to be expected. I just expected so much more. One person found this helpful. I think this was actually based on a true story, but I found it to be a bit self serving.
I just didn't personally care for it. You will either love it or hate it. Those that love it seem to love the exploration of the human condition. Those that hate it seem to not like the fact that its format is that of phone texts and conversations voicemail while most of the time only hearing one side. I found it intriguing and one day will probably read it again. It just wasn't the type of book I enjoy.
