My Take on the Book
This book is a treasure trove of great short examples of what love should and could be. I loved the fact that there were so many authors sharing their thoughts on love. and what was best about this was the fact that these individuals are supposed to truly know what they are talking about (as they write about it in their novels). I would have liked to have seen some male authors possibly, but maybe they would not have been able to give the same type of background and insight that these authors provide.

Each section is short and to the point and most of all, easy to read. If you are looking for a great book that gives you many of the steps that each of us should consider in our loving relationships, look no further!
