This is Your Brain In Love

This Is Your Brain In Love: New Scientific Breakthroughs for a More Passionate and Emotionally Healthy Marriage
by Dr. Earl Henslin

Dr. Henslin uncovers the five types of lovers: Scattered Lover, Over-Focused Lover, Blue Mood Lover, Agitated Lover and the Anxious Lover.  For each type, a questionnaire is included to help readers determine where they fall.  Henslin then explains each type and some of the whys and hows of this person's brain as it relates to sexuality and spirituality.

Written with humor, the book has it's intriguing portions, filled with interesting facts and ideas, backed by science and research.  For those not into scientific reasoning, who just want to understand the basics, this book can be a little over the top with research and cited along with explanations.  While it can be an easy read for anyone, even with the extra science and research thrown in, it spoke more to my husband than myself.  I got lost in the research, medical references, brain scan pictures and discussions and the general science, only really tuning in to the basics.  This book is a bit deeper than the usual self help relationship book out there.

Absolutely written for married couples, Henslin seeks to encourage readers to understand who they are, how they tick, and how they can come together to form an even stronger bond in their marriage.  For the couples into the hows and whys, this book may be for you.  For the readers and couples into the help and practice, a little less so.
