In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Levine and psychologist Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory--the most advanced relationship science in existence today--can help readers find and sustain love.
This book was interesting and it changes the way you look at people. Like that you guy you liked who pushed you away? He is the avoidant type. Or that girl who scares all her boyfriends away by being so clingy? She's the anxious type. It shows you in very easy to follow scenarios all three attachment types anxious, secure or avoidant and how they can relate to the people you know. My problem with this book was the fact that after awhile the scenarios got repetitive and boring. Also the fact that they wanted you to write in the book to take the tests to determine you're type and I'm sorry I can't write in books, you could grab paper and do the tests but I ussally don't have paper with me while reading. So over all a pretty good book that allows you to examine the relationships around you.
I received this book through Goodread's Firstreads program.
