Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Instead of an in-depth look at how people achieve close relationships, Harvey (psychology, Univ. of Iowa) offers a smorgasbord of information on the topic. He manages to touch on everything from sex to dealing with grief to where to find a date, which ultimately results in a lack of focus. Information about the use of pornography and anecdotes about stalking behavior seem out of place, as does commentary regarding the effects of divorce on children. Indeed, Harvey seems to have taken a lot of good information from census data and from psychological studies and put it all together whether or not it makes sense to do so. Ultimately, he seems unsure of his audience: This isn't a scholarly work, but Harvey apparently expects his audience to be acquainted with many of his citations. Then, in the last chapter, he runs down the self-help genre to which this book belongs. All in all, a marginal purchase for most libraries.-Pamela A. Matthews, Missouri Western State Coll. Lib., St. Joseph
