Publisher's Summary

"What the heck is my partner thinking?" is a common refrain in romantic relationships and with good reason. Every person is wired for love differently, with different habits, needs, and reactions to conflict. The good news is that most people's minds work in predictable ways and respond well to security, attachment, and rituals, making it possible to actually neurologically prime the brain for greater love and fewer conflicts.

Wired for Love is an innovative guide to understanding your partner's brain and enjoying a romantic relationship built on love and trust. Synthesizing research findings drawn from neuroscience, attachment theory, and emotion regulation, this audiobook presents 10 guiding principles that can improve any relationship.

    "Excellent book and based on science"
    What did you love best about Wired for Love?

    Loved this book, plan to listen to it again. I love how the author incorporates major attachment theorists as well as recent research on interpersonal neurobiology. Is written in a way that people not in the psychology field can understand the concepts. The book also has a really great narrator. Have recommended the book to patients.

    "well worth the time"

    this book cut through the fluff and provided direct advice on how to approach and how to improve relationships.
    the suggestions were logical and can be used on both romantic and non romantic relationships.

    "Review: Wired for Love"

    Finally, a book on making relationships work that is based on science and not standard marriage counseling BS.

    "Excellent Book for Successful Relationship!"

    Loved it! Great book to read as a couple if you want to have a successful relationship. simply said, we don't come with instruction manuals. Very important to understand how each person is designed and how our brains are wired... and why we are the way we are. I now have a deeper appreciation of my mate, a wave, as well as better understanding of myself, the island. Just wish it gave better direction for exact ways to overcome some of the underlying battles an island faces.

    "Massive Breakthrough in One Day!"

    Learning about attachment styles yesterday helped me see the connection between my severe health challenges, my challenges in business and in my romantic relationship.

    Reading this book in one day gave me the knowledge and confidence to make a clean break with my partner without any regrets OR create a very different, loving and supportive relationship, depending on his openness to this approach.

    Results TBD.

    "Stilted narration!"

    The narration for this book was barely tolerable. Purportedly based on scientific evidence, the concepts presented were simplistic and one-dimensional . I much prefer the books by John Gottman and Harville Hendrix.

    "This book saved my relationship"

    If you always thought that the 'men are from Mars and women are from Venus" books were hokie and based on a lot of subjective opinions then this is the book for you! based on a lot of research and science of the brain the author very clearly and in layman's terms lays out how the brain is literally wired for love and why we do the things we do in relationships.
