Overview

The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm

The fiftieth Anniversary Edition of the groundbreaking international bestseller that has shown millions of readers how to achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love

Most people are unable to love on the only level that truly matters: love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage. As with every art, love demands practice and concentration, as well as genuine insight and understanding.

In his classic work, The Art of Loving, renowned psychoanalyst and social philosopher Erich Fromm explores love in all its aspects—not only romantic love, steeped in false conceptions and lofty expectations, but also brotherly love, erotic love, self-love, the love of God, and the love of parents for their children.

This is one of the most meaningful, insightful books I have ever read, having first read it in a college psychology class.. I frequently give it as a present.

Profound is a word that applies to every paragraph of this book. Though it was written 50 years ago, its applicability to today's society and to modern readers seems greater than it did when i read it for the first time over 20 years ago. It changed my relatedness to others and has had a correspondingly positive impact on my life.

Had to read it in college. Painful. Needless obscure vocabulary. Boring.
