About this item

This book for general readers and undergraduate students surveys the psychology and evolutionary biology of romantic love, attachment, mating, and partnership. Author Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist, is a scientific adviser to Match.com, as well as a scholar affiliated with the Kinsey Institute and the Center for Human Evolutionary Studies at Rutgers University; students and general readers may recognize her from her numerous TED talks. In this book, she offers insight on cheating and divorce, looks at the status of the sexual double standard, and gives advice on how to have a happy relationship. The book was first published in 1992. In this revised edition, Fisher reports on her own recent research using data collected in collaboration with Match.com. She reflects on relationship patterns in the digital age, presents the latest statistics on marriage and divorce, and reviews the latest scientific thinking on gender differences, love addiction, and the impact of brain chemistry on personality styles. The book includes a few b&w illustrations. Fisher’s previous books include Why We Love, Why Him? Why Her?, The Fist Sex, and The Sex Contract.
