Publisher's Summary

Happiness for Humans is a joyful, romantic and very funny story, perfect for those who loved The Rosie Project and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
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 30-something woman whose boyfriend has just left her and Aiden is a very complicated, very expensive piece of software.
Aiden knows Jen inside out. With access to all her devices, he knows her most played song, can find her favourite photos and single out the insta-quotes which most inspire her. Based on observations and unique algorithms, he has calculated that Jen should find a new man to achieve 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. Except Jen seems to be remarkably unwilling to fall in line with Aiden's flawless plan.
Can a very artificially intelligent machine discover emotional intelligence in time to fix Jen's life? And find out what exactly makes human beings happy?

Made this human happy

I really enjoyed this book. The storyline is fascinating and the humour is excellent - as in laughing out loud while walking the dog! Narrator also excellent. Highly recommended.

Bridget Jones meets iRobot...

I was in need of a distraction that had interest, humour, bit of suspense and great characters.... all very believable. Touch of “ rise of the robots” but wrapped up in easy to roll along with suspense... a villain out of the blue that made me say out loud “ oh no”!
