Excellent. Of universal interest. It deals with the subject in an entirely new way.-Simone de Beauvoir Originally released twenty years ago, Love and Limerence has become a classic in the psychology of emotion. As relevant today as it was then, this book offers insight into love, infatuation, madness, and all flavors of emotion in between.
