Description

Science writer Jonah Lehrer explores the mysterious subject of love.

Weaving together scientific studies from clinical psychologists, longitudinal studies of health and happiness, historical accounts and literary depictions, child-rearing manuals, and the language of online dating sites, Jonah Lehrer's A Book About Love plumbs the most mysterious, most formative, most important impulse governing our lives.

Love confuses and compels us - and it can destroy and define us. It has inspired our greatest poetry and defined our societies and our beliefs, and it governs our biology. From the way infants attach to their parents to the way we fall in love with other people to the way some find a love for God or their pets to the way we remember and mourn love after it ends, this book focuses on research that attempts, even in glancing ways, to deal with the long-term and the everyday. The most dangerous myth of love is that it's easy, that we fall into the feeling, and then the feeling takes care of itself. While we can easily measure the dopamine that causes the initial feelings of "falling" in love, the partnerships and devotions that last decades or longer remain a mystery.

This book is about that mystery. Love, Lehrer argues, is not built solely on overwhelming passion but, fascinatingly, on a set of skills to be cultivated over a lifetime.

Très intéressant

On met longtemps à entrer dans le livre au début, mais une fois qu'on est dedans, on ne peut plus s'arrêter d'écouter. L'auteur présente plusieurs études sur l'amour.

technical but enlightening

the book seems to have an odd flow between clinical and relational insights. Learned a lot. A lot of great references.

Panoramic View of the Impact of Love

A fantastic book that shows how love is the key to actions that mend marriages, raise healthy children, grow character after trauma, increase spirituality, develop success in life and the ability to withstand challenges. A panoramic view of love’s connection to everything in life. .

Loved the read

Recommended. Well written and articulate, with care, exuberance and good research. My wife and I listened together. We are grandparents now. It was reassuring to us that we have given our children the tools to become wonderful parents. They certainly have chosen wonderful mates and have the grit and great relationships we wished for them.
