'A groundbreaking book that redefines what it means to be in a relationship.' – John Gray, PhD., bestselling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.
Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory – the most advanced relationship science in existence today – can help us find and sustain love.
Pioneered by psychologist John Bowlby in the 1950s, the field of attachment explains that each of us behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:
Anxious people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner’s ability to love them back.
Avoidant people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.
Secure people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.
With fascinating psychological insight, quizzes and case studies, Dr Amir Levine and Rachel Heller help you understand the three attachment styles, identify your own and recognize the styles of others so that you can find compatible partners or improve your existing relationship.

The n* 1 rule for relationships
I wish I read this sooner. It’s the answer for everyone’s questions .
Extremely one sided view
This book is clearly written by anxiously attached authors who have nothing to offer apart from telling themselves that people who find close, intimate relationships difficult are the problem when relationships do not work the way like they do in Disney movies. Most of the book tells you that if you are anxiously attached it is not your fault if there are difficulties and all you need is a securely attached partner who can meet all your needs. There you are, saved you your money
