Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Three thousand years ago, my Greek ancestors tried to identify the forces playing themselves out in human nature and created the eight gods and seven goddesses of Olympus," begins Stassinopoulos in this follow-up to her Conversations with the Goddesses. Here she sketches seven human personality types based on the traits of the famous ladies of Olympus—Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hera, Hestia and Persephone. To help readers discover which goddess they most embody, Stassinopoulos offers a 12-question quiz that could have come straight from the pages of Cosmo; there’s a similar quiz designed to help them figure out which god their man most resembles. A Demeter woman, Stassinopoulos writes, "knows mothering as the most honorable occupation for a woman" and would pair well with a Poseidon man, while a Hestia lady is "centered and a great listener," but might need to be drawn out of her shell by a Hermes man. A native of Greece (and, incidentally, the sister of political commentator Arianna Huffington), Stassinopoulos capably relates the deities’ lives to that of contemporary women. But finding an absolute match among the broadly drawn goddesses is difficult and only cursorily addressed. Stassinopoulos’s prose can be both hackneyed and awkward, but her examples of real life couples (e.g. "Elaine and Mike: Opening the Channels of Communication") ground the book’s flights of poetic and mythic fancy.

Review

Deepak Chopra author of Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire The Humanness of Mars and Venus is brought to life by this insightful guide....Stassinopoulos helps men and women gain value as they claim the power of the archetypes in themselves so they can enjoy deeper and more meaningful relationships.

Marianne Williamson author of Everyday Grace Agapi Stassinopoulos brings the Greek goddesses alive. She helps them speak from deep within the heart of the universe, telling us what we need to know to be the women we want to be, attracting the relationships we want to have.

More About the Author

Agapi Stassinopoulos was born and raised in Athens, Greece. At age 18, she entered the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and afterward became a member of the Young Vic. She moved to the United States to do film and television, and later attended the University of Santa Monica, where she completed her Master's in Psychology.

While her sister, Arianna Huffington, was doing research for her book about Greek mythology, Agapi's love for the gods and goddesses was ignited and led to two books of her own--Conversations with the Goddesses and Gods and Goddesses in Love--as well as a one-woman show and a PBS special. She also coproduced and cohosted a documentary called "Quest for the Gods," shot on location in Greece.

Agapi has been invited to speak at various international events and global conferences, and has also spoken about health and well-being for The Spirit of Women organization, which represents hundreds of hospitals around the country.

An inspiring teacher, Agapi conducts seminars worldwide for both men and women, empowering them to recognize their individual gifts and create the lives they want. She is a frequent blogger for The Huffington Post.

Format: Paperback
I fell into this book by "accident", I am not someone who has been very intersetd in Gods and Goddesses. This book found its way to me and I discovered such valuable information about myself and my husband. The author is genuine and inspiring. It was a "happy accident" for this book to fall in my lap.

I reccommend it to those that already have a relationship to deepen what you have and to those who are not in a relationship as a way to create a fulfilling one. Great read.

Format: Paperback
Gods and Goddesses in Love by Agapi Stassinopoulos is a dream read. Informative, honest, fun, sexy and transformational, I have been using what I learned about the archtypes literally each and every day. Agapi helped me understand my marriage in a way I had not imagined. She helped me understand other people's relationship both personal and celebrity. She also invoked in me a new sense of who I am, all the aspects combined! and an awareness of how to use my strength, my wisdom, my feminine, my nurturer, my creativity, my magic to make all my dreams come true. Her willingness to share her own story was inspirational. This book is a gem. And she is a true goddess.

Format: Paperback
Agapi's book is both inspiring and informative. Having studied mythology for many years, I found new fun aspects of the gods and goddesses to contemplate and perhaps even to incorporate. Desire, love, and passion are marvelously complex; Agapi's approach offers useful tools of awareness for self and others, plus ways to enhance and enrich the heavenly experience of being In Love. It's my new favourite gift for birthdays, engagements, and weddings.
