Book Nook: How We Love

I recently had a chance to review How We Love, Expanded Edition by Milan and Kay Yerkovich. It's a great book for anyone at any stage of relationship, from just starting in romance to having been together for a seemingly long time. It's even appropriate for single adults who want to explore the patterns that define their own sense of love before entering into a serious relationship.

Throughout the book, the authors explore how partners relate to each other - and how the patterns go back to before two partners ever laid eyes on each other. Attachment theory provides the foundation for their definition of an "intimacy imprint" that starts in childhood. It makes sense that our basis for how we love and interact with partners stems from what we've seen, even as children. 

The book has practical ideas, coupled with personal stories to bring the information to life. Not only does it explain where one's style of love comes from, but also how to use that knowledge to break negative patterns, find the source of conflicts instead of the symptoms, and create close relationships with the ones we love.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
