COUPLING: Understanding the Chemistry of Close Relationships

The purpose of this book is to demystify love,"" promises this therapist/professor/author. And that purpose he achieves--via highflown circumlocution (""An important factor in parenting is the woman's motivation in regard to the couple's economic status""); lists of a dozen love stages, nine ""varieties of heterolove,"" etc.; self-quizzes to figure out whether you're in love or should remain that way; and a ""magical formula of compatibility"" that stresses the attraction of opposites against a background of similarities--sort of. All this to show us the way when it comes to ""clicking,"" ""ticking,"" and ""sticking"" with each other. Drivel.
