A scientifically proven 9-step program for understanding the dating brain and finding the love of your life

Psychiatrist Paul Dobransky presents a patented, clinically proven, easy-to-follow nine-step program that can lead to lasting love.

Successful romantic relationships have three phases:
1. Attraction
2. Bonding in friendship
3. Commitment

Dr. Dobransky demonstrates how each of these stages is dealt with by a particular part of the brain. By appealing to each of these three “brains” in order, we can build a relationship that will last for a lifetime. Drawing on real-life case studies and accessible scientific theory, Dr. Dobransky explains how and why we make the romantic choices we make and shows how we can identify the right person for us and enjoy true love that stands the test of time.

    A reviewer

    The program makes a lot of sense and would probably work if you could remember all of it. However, the more I read, the more I felt a bit disheartened because it makes relationships seem like way too much work, and I started to think that they're just not worth all the effort. You have to do Step X before Step Y or it won't work. You have to do everything as directed, in order. It's like combining a cookbook with a treatise on quantum physics. Although it has good premise and sound science behind it, it's overwhelming and kind of discouraging.
