Review:

This book may change your life...Love 2.0 is not a treatise for old romantics, but something far more interesting... Fredrickson redefines [love] as fleeting moments of emotion we feel whenever we make a real connection with another human. -- -- New Scientist

The scientist's verdict: there's no such thing as everlasting love -- -- The Times Weekend

Love, more than happiness or optimism, holds the key to improving our mental and physical health. -- Bristol 24-7
