'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

'Fugère, 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
