Review:

'This book is full of interesting topics that will have great appeal to anyone interested in relationships. The book is student-friendly, bringing research to life with real-life examples, and it features a great mix of classic studies and recently published research. It is refreshing to see all these topics covered in one textbook.' - Claire Hart, Lecturer in Psychology, University of Southampton, UK 'Not since Rubin's classic 1973 Liking and Loving do we have a book that intelligently reviews a broad range of social science research on interpersonal attraction. The authors are masterfully able to discuss abstract scientific concepts in a way that is illuminating as well as engaging. They are able to blend the scientific literature, personal anecdotes, and popular media to cook such a delicious meal that gives all of us plenty to chew on for some time.' - David A. Kenny, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Connecticut, USA "This very well-written book covers a wide array of fascinating topics and is illustrated by many rich examples. Readers will find each chapter to be both interesting and accessible." - Norman Li, Associate Professor of Psychology, Singapore Management University, Singapore 'Fugere, Leszczynski, and Cousins provide an accessible and engaging overview of a topic that should be of particular interest to traditional age undergraduates. The book's summaries and analyses of a range of research are interspersed with illustrative and entertaining examples from the authors' lives and from popular culture. As readers are guided through some of the implications for their own relationships, they may be startled to learn how wrong some of their beliefs about dating are.' - Susan Rakowitz, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Fairfield University, USA
