Descripción del producto
"Written in a deceptively simple manner, in language that is over nobody's head, Why We Love mixes [Fisher's] new research with prior scientific findings to build a thesis with startling ramifications." --The New York Times Book Review
"Like the words of a talented lover, Fisher's prose is charming and engaging . . . In hands as skilled as Fisher's, scientific analysis of love only adds to its magic." --Scientific American
Reseña del editor
Edward O. Wilson
In Why We Love, renowned anthropologist Helen Fisher offers a new map of the phenomenon of lovefrom its origins in the brain to the thrilling havoc it creates in our bodies and behavior. Working with a team of scientists to scan the brains of people who had just fallen madly in love, Fisher proved what psychologists had until recently only suspected: when you fall in love, specific areas of the brain "light up" with increased blood flow. This sweeping new book uses this data to argue that romantic passion is hardwired into our brains by millions of years of evolution. It is not an emotion; it is a drive as powerful as hunger.
Provocative, enlightening, engaging, and persuasive, Why We Love offers radical new answers to age-old questions: what love is, who we loveand how to keep love alive.

By the time you are done reading it, you will not only think of love in a different way, but you will be able to maker clearer distinctions between lust, infatuation, and love; ultimately arriving at a better understanding of what love is, and what motivates YOU to love someone.
Some of the most interesting information in this book (which comes courtesy of years of studies and research conducted by neuroscientists and psychologists that Helen works closely with) includes:
-Falling in love is characterized by "special meaning"
-New love commands your undivided attention
-New love exaggerates a person's positive qualities (the "Pink Lens Effect")
-Romantic love is based on need and gratification
-Emotional love is based on comfort and nurturing
-Romantic love lasts between 12 to 18 months
-Adversity heightens romantic interest ("The Romeo & Juliet Effect")
-Men believe more in love at first sight than women
-Dopamine levels rise intensely during new relationships
-Dopamine levels decrease dramatically as the longer relationships last
-Novelty increases dopamine levels
-Orgasms are powerful bonding mechanisms
-Men equate sexual activity with closeness
-Women feel more intimate when talking precedes sex
-Men with higher testerone marry less, and have more affairs
-Men's testosterone levels drop the more attached they become
-Attachment diminishes lust
-Love is long term, lust is short term (but you already knew that)
Reading this book will help you discover why!
The most intriguing chapter in Fisher's book was chapter eight, entitled "Taking Control of Passion." Riding on the wave of psychologists' research, Fisher, an anthropologist, sets forth some very useful and practical suggestions how to make romance last and how to overcome depression once a relationship is over. Is Dr. Fisher morphing into Dr. Phil?
