Es un libro sencillo, curioso y fácil de leer. Además, he aprendido muchísimas cosas sobre nuestras tradiciones, de dónde vienen y por qué comenzaron a hacerse. Si tenéis curiosidad sobre el amor y todos los mitos que lo rodean, el libro te resultará muy entretenido. Eso sí, es bastante corto y en algunos pasajes el autor parece no haberse documentado con muchas ganas. Para mí, un regalo muy resultón para San Valentín.

I love non-fiction and I particularly liked this little book, filled with answers to many loved-related questions such as 'Why we give red roses?' 'Why the heart is the symbol of love?' or 'Why Cupid wears a blindfold?
Entretenido, se pasa un buen rato leyendo pero la mayoría de "curiosidades" que aparecen son de dominio popular, por lo que, salvando tres o cuatro cosas, no me ha aportado nada nuevo. 2,5
