Publisher's Summary

In this playful and informative exploration of the science behind how to choose a great mate, acclaimed relationship psychologist Dr. Ty Tashiro explores how to find enduring love. Dr. Tashiro translates reams of scientific studies and research data into the first audiobook to revolutionize the way we search for love. His research pinpoints why our decision-making abilities seem to fail when it comes to choosing mates and how we can make smarter choices.

Dr. Tashiro has discovered that if you want a lifetime of happiness - not just togetherness - it all comes down to how you choose a partner in the first place. With wit and insight, he explains the science behind finding a soul mate and distills his research into actionable tips, including:

  • Why you get only three wishes when choosing your ideal partner.
  • Why most people squander their wishes and end up in unfulfilling relationships.
  • How wishing for the three traits that really matter can help you find enduring love.

Illustrated using entertaining stories based on real-life situations and backed by scientific findings from fields such as demography, sociology, medical science and psychology, Dr. Tashiro provides an accessible framework to help singles find their happily-ever-afters.

    "Science with a great story"

    This is a compelling topic and since I love brain science and human stories I'll be listening to this again and again.

    "Very informative"

    Judge the book by its title. It is indeed about science. The book often reads (and sounds) like an academic paper.

    However, Tashiro does a great job keeping it all interesting, and he does an even better job making the information relevant to the reader.

    The narration is high quality.

    I definitely recommend this book.

    "Pratical but rigorous framework to pursue love"

    Great book that gives a gery pratical framework for bettee understanding yourself and what drives your behaviour and how to assess potential partners.
    Started a bit slow and theoretical but is definitely worth it. Chapter 8 provided a framework that allowed me to instantly tly see myself and my wife's behaviour and understand the underlying dynamics of our behaviour, the way no counselling session ever has. This will truly make a difference in my life. I recommend to every single person and its still useful for people like me that are in a relationship to better understand ourselves and partners and to improve the relationship dynamics.

    "Gets you thinking"

    The negative sounding "settle" has such a different meaning now. Hearing the numbers on just how few people meet all of a person's ideal mate criteria was eye opening. I'm still sticking to the single life, but still very interesting listen.

    "Great information / tremendously helpful"

    This book helped straighten out a lot of dating/relationship confusion for me. Sometimes I need processes and data for my big decisions - this book provided both.
