Why Do Fools Fall in Love: Experiencing the Magic, Mystery, and Meaning of Successful Relationships (Wiley Series in Psychology) by Janice R. Levine, Howard J. Markman

Relationship experts can tell us how to find a mate, save our marriage, or improve our sex life, but their advice is meaningless unless we can experience and master that underlying, magical, incredibly powerful emotion that binds us together no matter what. Thirty-two marriage and family experts set aside their professional personae to explain the wild and wonderful, irrational and passionate mystery of love. Written with simplicity and warmth, this book ultimately illuminates a deep and compassionate vision of what constitutes truly happy long-term relationships. Also included are pearls of wit and wisdom from celebrity couples, including Cokie and Steve Roberts, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, George and Barbara Bush, Christopher Reeve and Dana Morosine, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, and others. Why Do Fools Fall in Love? will be cherished by all couples (and aspiring couples) who want to understand and energize that transformative power of love. Experts and celebrities unravel the mysteries and secrets of passionate, long-lasting love For anyone--single or married-who has ever wondered about the magic of falling in love and the mystery of staying in love-wonder no more. This inspiring and informative book reveals the formula for creating and maintaining loving, passionate relationships. --Michele Weiner-Davis, author, Divorce Busting I think it2s true that love brings out the best in us. And that2s why we seek it out. --Annette Bening Good marriages don2t just happen-they take a lot of love and a lot of work. --Tipper Gore Love may be blind-especially in its earliest stages-but by opening your eyes and ears through discovery, you can achieve deep and enduring love. --Patricia Love When we study those couples who truly 2master2 marriage, we notice that in one case her sense of humor is delightful to him, and eases his heart though they2re discussing a difficult, long-standing issue. --John M. Gottman There2s a special level of affection that is based on longevity, on knowing each other well over a period of time and going through many things together, happy and sad. --Cokie Roberts Once we have experienced love, nothing in life is quite the same and nothing in life can do what love does. Howard J. Markman This book will be of significant interest to all whose work involves them in marriage counseling as well as to individuals dealing with problems in their own marriages.
