Book o' the Month: A General Theory of Love

A General Theory of Love could be a college textbook. But unlike many such texts that will put you to sleep, you'll want to keep reading this one past your bedtime. It is well written, extremely informative, and what could be more interesting a topic than love?

The preface states, "This book--as it elucidates the shaping power of parental devotion, the biological reality of romance, the healing force of communal connection--argues for love."

All in all, very enlightening, in my opinion. It might just change the way you look at your closest relationships, and yourself. Perfect reading for February, or any month.


  1. It sounds like a lovely read. What a pretty blog you have.

  2. This is one of my all time favorite books! It touches on the core of human relationships...and even explains connection with our pets. It's a total must read.

  3. Thanks for the book review! I read a book similar to this in college and really enjoyed it.
