PRAISE FOR HOW TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ANYONE
A beautifully written and well-researched cultural criticism as well as an honest memoir.
—Los Angeles Review of Books
"Personal musings and reminiscences paired with solid research provide an interesting stroll through an abstract topic."
"Honest and well-researched, the book will teach readers plenty about love, science, and themselves. Perfect fodder for the romantic and the cynic in all of us."
Catron melds science and emotion beautifully into a thoughtful and thought-provoking meditation on the most universal topic.
“It’s hard to imagine a more timely endeavour. Clear-eyed and full of heart, How to Fall in Love With Anyone is mandatory reading for anyone coping with—or curious about—the challenges of contemporary courtship.”
“In our age of total romantic confusion, Mandy Len Catron is a voice of good sense, warm humor and consoling wisdom. Through the lens of her own relationships, she teaches us—with a deft, convincing intelligence—some of the vital moves in the art of love.”
—Alain de Botton, author of How Proust Can Change Your Life and The Course of Love
