1 Review

Far from the nonsense of typical agony aunts, this relationship advice will be based on science: using extensive scientific fieldwork from psychology and sociology journals as well as other serious research, Dr. Luisa Dillner gives you the right answers to those often recurring questions: what are the chances of making a long distance relationship work? How can I get my boyfriend to stop flirting? Is your relationship better if you don't argue?

In this essential book about love, women will finally get some intelligent information about relationships and men will get the facts and figures they have always been curious about but never knew they could find. The book is divided into each stage of a relationship, from dating to parenthood and beyond, and its easily readable question and answer format makes it perfect material for the bedside table.
