Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In this groundbreaking exploration of our most complex and mysterious emotion, renowned anthropologist Helen Fisher explains why this experience —which cuts across time, geography, and gender— is a force as powerful as the need for food or sleep. Working with brain scans of people who had just fallen madly in love, Fisher proved what psychologists had until recently only suspected: when you fall in love, specific areas of the brain "light up" with increased blood flow, showing exactly what you experience when you fall in love, why you choose certain people, and how love affects your sex drive. Description in Spanish: Provocador, convincente y revelador, este libro ofrece respuestas nuevas a cuestiones tan antiguas como ¿por qué nos enamoramos? ¿Qué es el amor? ¿De qué forma podemos mantenerlo vivo? En esta fascinante mirada sobre un impulso tan fundamental, Fisher revela exactamente qué experimentamos cuando nos enamoramos, por qué elegimos a una persona y no a otra, y cómo el amor romántico afecta biológicamente al impulso sexual y a los sentimientos de atracción por el otro. También expone las diferencias entre el cerebro femenino y el masculino, y lo que esto implica para nuestra forma de amar. Por último, presenta sugerencias concretas sobre cómo controlar esta pasión ancestral, y explora con optimismo el futuro del amor romántico en el caótico mundo moderno.
