    Not a book with answers

    The information in this book is interesting and informative. It is written well, and it includes many exciting stories that I have added into the list of topics that I discuss with friends.

    This book is not a self-help manual. The reader will not find ways in which to improve his own cercumstances without professional help.

    I highly recommend this book for people who seek more information on how we communicate.

    Entirely Grounded

    I greatly admire the leap of faith, aspiring to explain a concept via biology, and I was instantly drawn to the book; however, this book, in all its physiological depth, fails to connect the physical processes with the abstract suppositions of love and does not even approach the hard questions, let alone answer them. The reader is left to draw the real conclusions. Whether love is truly abstract or merely the result of chemical and neural changes is not the central question, but in order for the authors to adequately connect the dots with the reader, they must tie their biological theories with subjectivity. Without such a tie, the book is just short of influential, reading like a textbook and playing it safe within the confines of pure biology.
