"Consider these 'pearls of wisdom' from A Dictionary of Love" Family Circle
"Who wrote the book of love? The Answer, historians will argue. might be pretty difficult to trace. But one thing is certainly true, whoever wrote the book of love could probably have used Gil Friedman's A Dictionary of Love, on the desk beside the tablets, papyrus sheets, sheepskin, or whatever the muses used in the misty land of romantic wisdom." Chico Enterprise Record, Chico, CA

"What sets Mr. Friedman's volume apart from earlier anthologies on the theme of love is that he included many New Age sages and they add a touch of seriousness and timeliness. There is Rollo May, Meher Baba, Gerald G. Jampolsky, Bernie S. Siegal, to mention just a few."

"Funny, rueful, practical, wise and compassionate, this collection is a recommended gift to anyone who is in or might be in a love relationship (like teenagers). One charming feature is the great range of attitudes displayed. One can disagree totally with one, and on the same page find one that rings true and provides an insight. Lots of fun, and more educational than many a tome."
