"Captivates the reader, answers all those puzzling questions that caused your mother (or priest or guidance counselor or gym teacher) to blame God and/or hormones....Her prediction of a more open and egalitarian order provides a compelling--and hopeful--vision for the future."
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
Love at first sight...the copulatory gaze...dinner dates...jealousy... intimacy... homesexuality...infidelity...Dr.Helen Fisher, an anthropologist at the American Museum of Natural History, explains it all in this four-million-year history of the human species. She demystifies much about romance and pairing that we tend to believe is willfull or just plain careless. She offers new explanations for why men and women fall in love, marry, and divorce, and discusses the future of sex in a way that will surprise you.
Helen Fisher is a genius. I'd risk living in New Jersey just to work with her. (She's at Rutgers)Published 29 days ago by Emily

Great book. still holds human values and virtues. Need to exercise and practice what you read.
Old book from the 90's
I have several of Fisher's books. She writes well and has brought together a copious amount of research from around the world on her subject. A bit dry but highly interesting.Published 21 months ago by Daniel E. Hofford
