Here, three doctors approach the complexity of love from different psychological standpoints, most keenly from a biological basis. They explore the reasoning behind how people act and express their emotions.

Most of these things they discuss are logical, natural, and expected, but perhaps it is seeing it on paper and reading it creates this "ah-ha!" moment and confirms what is already believed. Nonetheless, this book creates a nice psychological perspective on love.

My one complaint though would be that, at times, it felt like the writing style was too "flowery" and overworked. The similes and metaphors used to portray certain ideas were creative, but not so effective at times.
