Reseña del editor
From the editor of the New York Times' popular "Modern Love" column, the story of love from beginning to end (or not). Love. We want it. We need it. We pay it homage with songs and poems and great works of art. And when we lose it, there's no pain as intense or excruciating. For centuries we've been trying to figure it out, control it, or just get better at it. As the editor of a column about love for the New York Times, Daniel Jones reads thousands of stories about people's intimate relationships-the ones that soar, crash, or hum along, from the bizarre to the supposedly "normal." It's possible that he's read more true love stories than anyone on earth. In Love Illuminated, he teases apart this mystifying emotion that thrills, crushes, and sustains. Drawing from the 50,000 stories that have crossed his desk over the past decade, Jones explores ten aspects of love-pursuit, destiny, vulnerability, connection, trust, practicality, monotony, infidelity, loyalty, and wisdom-and creates a lively, funny and enlightening journey through this universal human experience that jangles the head and stirs the heart.Ver Descripción del producto

Reading this book was extremely enlightening, in that it points out the realism of love and marriage very bluntly. The author doesn't try to sugarcoat things or make things sound better than they seem - he writes it as he sees it. The truth is, relationships are hard. Love is hard. Marriage is hard. But, like all things in life, a little effort every day goes a long way. Daniel Jones talks about each stage of a relationship, and illuminates certain truths with anecdotes and stories from his stint as the editor of a relationship column on the NY Times.
I think it's important to go into this book with a positive mindset; there is a lot to be learnt about how to be a better partner (or a better person in general), as long as you don't let the depressing undertones of the book get to you.
