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.

Review: Wired for Love

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

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.

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.

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.

No PDF = 1 star

Any audio book that has exercises but the production team cannot be bothered to create and add a PDF of those exercises for listeners, is to me, and in my opinion should be to you, a one star showing. In fact you’ve already written it and printed it. Greedy and not showing up for the people.who paid you for your work. That aside this would have been a 4 or 5 star review.

Saved my relationship

I cannot recommend this book enough. As a recently divorced person still trying to determine what went wrong and facing similar struggles in a new relationship, this helped guide me to a place of new hope and more fulfilling relationship.

It is practical, easy to understand, and easy to implement.

Thank you!

Attached is better

I was really looking forward to this book as I'd heard so many rave reviews. However I found the heavy use of jargon un-necessary and the dialogues/examples banal and cheesy. If you are interested in the subject of attachment theory I would recommend Attached over this book.

Crap narrator - can't listen

This may as well have been narrated by a computer program. Seeking a refund from audible.
