The book Why We Love is a great book to read due to its factual content based on scientific research as of to how and why opposites attract and the ongoing process that continues as love progresses into romantic and attachment or mature love which is the culmination towards a healthy interpersonal relationship with the opposite sex. Why We Love provides great informative reading that promotes a general understanding at why people of both genders behave the way do during the four phases of Love which are: Lust,Romantic Attraction,Deepening Affection,and Attachment.

A fascinating read about the science of love and why we love. It tells you everything about the different stages of love and how we deal with it on mental, emotional and on a physical level within the body and mind. Really a good read if you're into psychology too.

I found Fishers writing style, her vagueness in addressing such topics, and her failure to elaborate on them quite annoying. However, her case study was interesting and did yield solid results.

For anyone out there interested in learning not only about the chemicals our brain releases when we're in love, but also to learn so much about the human brain in such a captivating way...not a boring medical book, but one that teaches you scientific information without you even realizing it! It's one that I refer to often and refuse to loan out.

This book just wasn't very interesting to me. So much of it was quotations from literature about how people in history have felt when they were in love (this isn't what I purchased the book for). I found the author repetative, saying the same thing over again in different ways. Personally I would have preferred to learn more studies that were done and the results of those. Additionally, a few of her theories at the end of the book regarding rage and anger while being in love contradicted things she wrote earlier. Finally I would have loved to learn more about how men and women are biochemically different when in love. In short, I'm very interested in this subject matter but I didn't love the book. I did learn a little. I learned more, however, from the books I reccommend below.
