Love: The Psychology of Attraction

Leslie Becker-Phelps, with Megan Kaye. DK, $19.95 paperback (224p) ISBN 978-1-4654-2989-6

This infographic-heavy offering, created by illustrated book publisher DK with the help of consulting psychologist Becker-Phelps, explores the nature of intimate relationships. The text also explains how people looking for love can put the book’s useful insights to work. The book is divided into five chapters, beginning with “You” and ending with “Together,” with all the complexities of seeking and dating in between. Specific topics include determining whether a second date is appropriate, and deciding whether and when to become physically intimate with a new partner. Interactive exercises guide couples onto the road to harmony, and sensible advice will take them even closer to an ideal relationship. (Jan.)
