Dubbed "the Love Doctor" by the San Francisco Chronicle, Daphne Rose Kingma believes that people fall into one of nine personality categories: the Attention Seeker, the Emoter, the Cool Cucumber, the Skeptic, the Workaholic, the Perfectionist, the Fantasizer, the People Pleaser, and the Controller. She explains the reasons why we are attracted to specific types, the family history involved, and which types tend to team up. She also explores the emotional issues of each personality and the traits that can infuriate other types of people, to give readers a deeper sense of what's happening when they fight with their partners. In her trademark warm and heartfelt style, Kingma gives lovers a better understanding of the differences between them and their mates -- so they can love each other more fulfillingly.
