Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Just in time for Valentine's Day comes this delightful little book by writing team Maniatis and Elizabeth Weil (Crib Notes: A Random Reference for the Modern Parent). Together with Natasha Bondy, a BBC director/producer, they have assembled an array of interesting trivia and appealing facts on love, romance, and affairs of the heart. Included are a glossary of lingerie, a sample prenuptial agreement, a listing of love poems and the best romantic movies of all time, and instructions for saying "I love you" in 44 languages. Not to be missed is the "A to Z of Aphrodisiacs." Great fun for all libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
