Publisher's Summary

Crazy Little Thing is a look at why we want to be in love and the burbling, boiling soup of endorphins, hormones, and neurotransmitters that spill from our brain to make us do things that would otherwise be viewed as insane. Investigative journalist Liz Langley traveled the country to research and interview singularly love-mad folks who maimed, murdered, and married.

Langley reveals the science of love and lust, as well as very human stories: a spouse who can't stop loving her criminally psychotic husband, even after he threw acid in her face; the sweet romance between alligator-skinned sideshow performers; and a man whose neurons drive his necrophilia. Langley reveals the control our chemicals have over us in a hilarious, confounding - and too strange to be anything but true - look at love.

Too bored to bother

I didn't like the content and narrator enough to hear more than a few pages

Not what I expected.

I expected a more practical book on dealing with relationships. Seems a good portion of the book was spent on weird loves (like necrophilia) than on what is practical in every day life.
