I remember watching on PBS segments this stout professor with caring eyes and a bigger heart, Dr. Leo Buscaglia, speaking about love and life. I regret I never had a chance to meet him or give him a hug. One of my favorite books is Loving Each Other: The Challenge of Human Relationships by Leo Buscaglia. The book is partly based on a questionnaire that he conducted on love. Even though the book was written in the 80s, its words still hold true today. How in a busy world not one has time to stop and hug or recognize the people around us. Our most essential human need is touch. He shares a story of how a young man went to a book store and bought a book: How to Hug, only to realize it was volume nine of the encyclopedia. Buscaglia delves back to his immigrant parents, Mama and Papa, and how they were not perfect but always had a loving relationship. His quest had been to understand love. Good relationships encourage optimal intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth. Bad relationships can be destructive and endanger our human dignity, depresses, and can demoralize us. In the end, we must learn how to co-exist in a world of six billion people, as Abraham Lincoln states, "Most folks are able as happy as they make up their minds to be." The same can be said about to how much in love they will be. I always read Loving Each Other: The Challenge of Human Relationships when I am a bit sad and cynical about love, it tends to brighten my focus and reawakens my belief in love. Buscaglia lessons are timeless and his humor adds a common touch.

This book is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY for anyone beginning a love relationship or already in one. Not just for love relationships, but it speaks to all regarding love of our fellow man/woman. ALL of Leo's books are outstanding. He is hands down one of my favorite authors/ people. He challenges you to free your mind and heart.
