"We all get busy, chasing our career, paying the mortgage, doing the school run. It's hard not to get distracted and lost in the daily blur of our lives. Life can be a full-time preoccupation. But when we come to our senses, which we inevitably do, we know that love is our greatest happiness and also the real work of our lives. In short, life is all about love, and even when it isn't, it still is really," writes Robert Holden in Loveability.

Loveability, the latest book by Robert Holden, is a practical meditation on love. Robert draws on his experience of teaching a Loveability public program in the UK since 2006. He uses a creative mix of stories, meditations, poetry, and the latest science, to give the reader not just "a good read" but also a real experience of love.

The inquiries in Loveability include: "Love is your real goal," "The meaning of "I love you," "How to know if you love someone," "Tell me a way you make it difficult for people to love you?" "If it hurts, it isn't love," "Your heart isn't really broken," and "Being a more loving person." Each chapter will address specific obstacles to finding love in their lives.

Loveability is not just a book. It is a project that is supported by talks, workshops, multi-media content, and a strong internet presence, similar to Robert's work with The Happiness Project and Success Intelligence.

Loveability beautifully escorts the reader into the very heart of what we seek most, which is to be loved.

I reviewed this book and thought it was such an excellent book to have as a resource for those wanting to build self esteem and open them self up to love. The author Robert Holden, Ph.D writes a wonderful book asking the question why aren’t courses offered in education facilities that teach about love? If the reader is not aware how important the emotion of love is then they will before the end of the book. The book has fun insights of the author’s childhood history as he reveals his curiosity and certainty of how important this emotion is to all aspects of our life. Throughout the book the author reinforces his belief that "Love is the real work of your life" and "As you release the blocks to love you flourish even more in your relationships, work, and life." This book is packed with inspiring gems and tips to becoming aware of love and how to get it in your life. Loveability is a great book to use if some one wanting to build self esteem and to practice the art of loving yourself. There are constructive tips and exercises to use and why it is so important to love yourself so you can love others all the more. This book is sectioned off into five parts entitled: • Love Is Your Destiny • Love Is Who Your Are • Love Has No Conditions • Love Knows No Fear • Love Is The Answer Some of the things I enjoyed in this book besides the contents are the wonderful quotes used and the references to books the author read that brought him to the point of his knowledge about this subject. It sparked my interest to the point where I have jotted down a few of the titles so I can better explore the emotion of love myself. Whether a reader would love to practice self love or keeping a relationship with a significant partner strong then this book has lots of useful tips. Robert Holder is the best selling author of Happiness Now, Authentic Success, and Shift Happens. He is also the creator of the ‘Loveability program’ so is an excellent resource for guiding his readers to the importance of love.

I loved this book .

Seriously, I was considering buying this audio.  I played the excerpt (1:18 min), listened to the story and was cut off from the story's ending.  I thought I must have inadvertently stopped it, so I tried again.  Now I'm just disgusted.  What a cheap marketing ploy.  What you're in love with is getting some fool -- it was almost me -- to buy your product.  Shame on you.
