Dr. Henslin is writing this book based on the theory that in order for two partners to be amongst the “few blessed ones” and to have a happy marriage they need to take the responsibility to bring their best brains into their marriage.
The book is easy to read, interesting and has a lot of very practical examples, ideas and solutions for how can you best improve your life or deal with your loved one. In the beginning of each chapter that describes a different type of lover (scattered lover, overfocused lover, the blue mood lover, agitated lover and anxious lover) he offers a little test so that you can easily identify the type of lover that you or your partner is.
I personally loved this book and I think that it is useful for everyone who wants to know more about how the brain can influence the way we act in our daily lives, it’s also very useful to help and relate with the loved ones in your life. Also I believe that this book may be a little difficult to follow for those who are not familiar with neuroscience or psychology, because Dr. Heslin talks about the disorders that are triggered by the overactivated or underactivated parts of the brain, and he uses a scientific language.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand and have healthy relationship with his partner or loved one (this doesn’t apply to married couples only) or if you want to take the responsibility of bringing your best brain into your marriage, then this book is for you. I would also recommend this book to those who are interested to learn more about how the brain and the imbalances in the chemicals of different parts of the brain can influence our behavior.
It is a really interesting and helpful book to have.
