Psychologist Gaylinauthor of Feelings: Our Vital Signs and other booksshould reach a wide audience with this probing, concerned exploration of love. He stresses that love is essential to life, and he poses a familiar question: What kind of love? Although Gaylin notes that the emotion is complex, beyond the realm of psychologists to define, he guides the reader to understanding on vital issues. Quotations from authors of the far past and present reinforce his message that one must love, not merely want to be loved. He issues cogent warnings about the chaotic social results in our age of self-seeking rather than commitment. He argues passionately for responsibility and shared love that, he insists, must be extended to include caring for all people and the physical world: ``We have reached the limits of individualism; our survival depends on rediscovering our need for community and ultimately, to rediscover love.'' The age-old reminder is rarely articulated so effectively. 35,000 first printing; Literary Guild alternate; author tour. (September 17)
