In this weak work of pop psychology, the authors, a psychiatrist and two psychologists, recommend a ""bonding technique'' for maintaining long-term, intimate relationships. Based on the theory that all people seek to regain the sense of security an infant feels in its mother's arms, the authorsin an example demonstrating the book's practical advice and jargonclaim that a man who wants to show his love for a woman should ``concentrate on pleasant-time activities so there will be mutual eye-gazing and smiling, as well as time spent together.'' Using a question-and-answer format, the book includes the same questionnaire at the beginning and the end of the text, presumably to show that after less than 100 pages of coaching, the reader should experience a measurable change of attitude.
