This book is about love. What it is and what it isn't. It is about you--and about everybody who has ever reached out to touch the heart of another. Among many other lessons of the heart, Leo Buscaglia reminds us: Love is open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.
From the Paperback edition.

“I hug everybody—just come close to me, you’re more than likely to get hugged, certainly touched.”
~ Leo Buscaglia from Love
I smile as I type these words—just having Buscaglia’s book, Love, open in front of me is enough to make me happy. :)
Seriously. This is hands down one of my favorite books. I’ve purchased at least 250 copies of it. We used to give it away to all of our partners at my last business (Zaadz.com) and I used to bring a copy with me to nearly every business lunch I had. (I’m a little wacky like that. :)
My hunch is you’ll fall in Love with Love as well. By the end of reading it, you’ll wish you could give Leo Buscaglia—a former Professor of Love at USC—a big ol’ hug.
Here are some of the Big Ideas:
1. Study Love - How else to master it?
2. Love Yourself - Rule #1.
3. Jump In! - Immerse yourself!
4. Say YES!! - And, yes! And, yes!
5. Grow in Love - To your highest self.
May I echo Buscaglia’s recommendation and suggest that we live for creating joy for others and sharing our greatest gifts in the greatest service to the world?!!?

Love is a subject of interest to many. If you are a passionate lover, this is the book for you. Grab a copy of it. Read it. Once you complete reading, you can gift it to someone near and dear to you. I know the ideas in the book will be interesting to many.
Buscaglia is a passionate teacher who taught his students the art of love while at university. He died several years back but his ideas live on. According to him, love is an art but not a science to analyze and calculate in terms of logic and propositions. It is in us, it is in you, it is in human beings. It is the energy that drives us. Buscaglia's ideas are worth remembering, practicing and sharing. This is a book that may change how you feel for your partner or the near and dear one. You should read and enjoy this book. This is a book that everyone should read. It has to be a must read for caring lovers like you.
I truly changed certain ideas I had in relation to love. It is I must love love so that I will be loved. Love is to be exchanged. Love is limitless and unconditional. That is what Buscaglia talks about. Though I saw the book accidentally, I never regret spending the few dollars on a book like this. Language in the book is simple. He simply explains the whole concept of love. Go ahead and read the book. There will be a transformation in you.
Many experience many forms of love. Parents' love, partners' love, love of close friends' etc. They are all forms of love. He advises the reader that sex is not love but it is a by product of love. He does not endorse physical love in a way but rather platonic love. Experience love, your life will be worth living for someone other than you.

The book seemed a little too clinical for my taste, but the man was a gem.
