First of all I get the feeling the author need me to know, I don't know anything about love. I feel like I am pushed to believe what's in the book. I know something that love is real and is passionate and four phases of love make no sense. Is like reading Deepak Chopra but without the benefit. More valuable was Grow older live younger by Deepak Chopra from spiritual point of view and Free to Be Me by Arthur Vonshtain from sexual point of view.
