Praise for Helen Fisher:
"Fascinating…. An original and uniquely contemporary approach to a sensation that, for millennia, has been considered purely emotional." —The Washington Post on Why We Love
"A thesis with startling ramifications." —The New York Times Book Review on Why We Love

A research professor of anthropology at Rutgers University, she lives in New York City.
