Author Karen Sorenson set up a table in Times Square, put out a sign that read ""Love Research,"" and asked the passersby:

Have you ever fallen in love? What does love mean to you? Has your love ever been tested? How do you prepare for love?

From a jaded inner-city teen to a five-year-old translating for his Russian Grandmother, people from all walks of life lined up to take part. Every answer won the respondent a flower--and Karen a new understanding. Thousands of interviews and flowers later, this delightful, moving, even profound book brings together the most entertaining and enlightening reflections on the meaning of love ever gathered into one volume.
