KIRKUS REVIEW

From the troubadour to the crooner, this is a history of the matrimonial customs of the western world, as fashions and centuries changed the arts of wooing. From Ovid's Art of Love and on through chivalry, fan and mask techniques, courtship by correspondence and tandem bike and to the modern language lack of winning compliments- the arts of persuasion are briskly surveyed.
