The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction

How does love begin? How can two strangers come to the conclusion that it would not only be pleasant to share their lives, but that they must share them?

Physical attraction, jealousy, infidelity, mother-infant bonding—all the behaviors that so often leave us befuddled—are now being teased out of the fog of mystery thanks to today’s social neuroscience. Larry Young, one of the world’s leading experts in the field, and journalist Brian Alexander explain how those findings apply to you.  Drawing on real human stories and research from labs around the world, their book, The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction is an attempt to create a “grand unified theory” of love.
