Description du produit
Revue de presse
"Fisher weaves a persuasive and consistently surprising new explanation of the roots of human marriage, sex, and love. Her account cuts more deeply than the ordinary literature on human sexuality." --Edward O. Wilson
Présentation de l'éditeur
"delightful to read, fascinating" The New York Times
Love at first sight, hooking up, jealousy, adultery...Helen Fisher explains it all in this thought-provoking anthropological view of human sexual and romantic behavior. Examining marriage and divorce in fifty-eight societies, infidelity in forty-two cultures, and new national studies of singles in America, she argues that we are returning to patterns of sex, romance, love, and attachment that echo our ancient past. This classic book has been updated throughout to include her revolutionary work on the brain in love, love addictions, and why we are biologically drawn to specific partners, and includes a new chapter on future sex.

Turns out: The 'seven year itch' is four years long; Woman pursue and enjoy sex, and have more intense orgasms than men; serial monogamy is the normal state of things, amongst humans and most species; Love, and sex are adapted to promote attachment (to promote successful reproduction), so much so in humans, that we have evolved the largest (in relative and absolute measurements) and most intensely inervated sex organs of any species; Women do not have a defined estrous - they are always in heat. There is great information on how we go about choosing a mate, the period of infatuation (1-3 years), adultery (who, why, when, etc.), and many more well researched topics of interest. Based on all this, and much more, Dr. Fisher gives great advise and counsel on maintaining intense love in our relationships. The information is state of the art and up to date.
I cannot emphasize what a great resource is this book.
Thomas A. Warr, MD
As a senior who used to be on an Internet dating site (Match.com), I had viewed several of the author’s Ted talks. These were intriguing enough to take a stab at this book in hardcover. To my delight, this book does not repeat the subject matter of her talks. Yes, some aspects of what she references in her talks make an appearance here and there but this work has a different emphasis. The majority of the book is a description of the anthropological history of what the subtitle says—mating, marriage, and why we stray. It is well written, moves at a pleasantly rapid pace, and the anecdotes are well chosen and properly illustrative.
The payoff from these lessons and the reader’s education comes in the final chapter. It is not just a home run, it is a grand slam! Only now, while reading her observations, conclusions, and predictions, the reader understands the foundation and background of each. The result is a credibility missing in a Ted talk or a YouTube video.
A delightful thing about Ms. Fisher is that she never loses sight of the sparkle and magic of romantic love. While the knowledge she communicates in this volume helps the reader to understand why men and women act as they do (including why we stray, if we do), she always focuses on the future, on the next adventure as we seek a new romantic partner. In my view, her take on internet dating sites is exactly accurate. “Internet dating services are not dating services; they are introducing services.” (p. 308) Amen to that. What we do, how we act, where things go after the introduction—that’s still up to us.
It is a rare book that causes a reader to feel, on completion, that he or she better understands human nature. This book merits that praise.
