    This book was actually a fascinating read Again I'm not one for self help books because I get confused and then forget what I just read and if I do remember never actually apply it because I'm too lazy You know?You knowBut did you know that when you fall in love it's like the same brain chemical reaction as if you were on drugs? Which kind of explains the dating reality shows and you always think Shit are these people on drugs? Well kind ofI really liked reading the book because it really covered all kinds of people Throughout the book it touches on the different kinds of lovers in relationship and how ADD plays a part in it AND? I totally diagnosed my husband with Limbic ADD You can imagine how thrilled he is But the symptoms of that are negativity low energy low self esteem irritability social isolation and poor appetite and sleep patterns For the few of you who might know my husband you are probably laughing hysterically because this? This is Matt Like if I had to come up with a list that would be it Granted the low energy and irritability is probably from working at least 10 hour work days but still He's Mr Negative who never wants to do anything that involves people And if you are asking how we got together I don't know either I've also decided he is a Blue Mood Lover The book provides tips on how I can make him happier Well I might do some But they require work and frankly I don't think it's my job to make him a happy camperBut I bet you are all just DYING to know what kind of lover I am Aren't you??PervertsBut because you have read this long I would be the Over Focused Lover Stop laughing The signs of this?Excessive or senseless worryingUpset when things don't go your wayUpset when things are out of placeTendency to be oppositional or argumentativeTendency to have repetitive negative thoughtsTendency to compulsive behaviorsIntense dislike for changeTendency to hold grudgesTrouble shifting attention from task to taskDifficulties seeing options in situationsTendency to hold onto own opinion and not listen to othersNeeding to have things done a certain way otherwise you become upsetMy favorite part about this? It specifically tells me to eat carbs Which is great because that's really the only food group I prefer to eat Carbs baby Matt was in no way interested in reading the tips he is supposed to do to make me happier so we're even But can I say how eerie this was? How dead on it was??Anyhoodle This book was a really fun read It was educational for one but all of the science behind it was explained thoroughly and it's written as if you were speaking to the author As if you were in for an appointment with the doctor The tests there are 5 in the book are quick and it's amazing how an injury to your head no matter how minor it was can really affect how your brain operates in general

    Dr Henslin's first book This Is Your Brain on Joy presented a good introduction to the physiology of some common biochemical disorders of the brain and steps to diagnose and treat them I was expecting this new book to be a helpful exploration of the physiology and biochemistry of love However this book really isn't much about the biochemistry of love at all but is instead an uneven and disappointing mashup of various topics some helpful some confusing There is a short first chapter which serves as a warm introduction to the concept of romantic love and its biochemistry Next is a chapter on sexuality and spirituality which was a nice read but has really no connection to the rest of the book Suddenly he launches into the main part of the book talking about the five love styles which are trumpeted on the book's cover but are really just a thinly retooled rehash of his first book describing five basic types of brain pathology I was frankly confused wait this is just talking about pathology this isn't about love at all what if my spouse and I don't have any biochemical pathology do I just skip the next 130 pages? where does personality style end and pathology begin? Is he implying that most people have deficient biochemistry that needs treating? He ends the book with another unrelated chapter titled The Secret to Lasting Love short version be kind patient honest forgiving and then appendixes on brain healthy eating sexual addiction brain scans and hormone therapy for women Overall the book has some helpful new information but fell far short of my expectations Read his first book instead

    Dr Earl Henslin has compiled some very scientific research which will hopefully help the readers of this book improve their love life Not only does he explain the anatomy of the brain along with a few photos showings scans of the brain he also explains in great detail how the brain functions and how those functions relate to our emotions I found it interesting that research shows when two people meet and are romantically attracted to each other their brains release chemicals that are as powerful as street drugs The book refers to this as a “love drunk” brain In fact Dr Henslin states that a scan of a brain in the beginning stages of romantic passion is very similar to a brain high on cocaine Also very powerful to the brain is Oxytocin which the book refers to as the “superglue” of the heart When the brain releases this chemical it causes a person to “bond” with another I REALLY found it interesting that the term “heart broken” isn’t actually that far off physically According to Dr Henslin’s research there are serotonin receptors in the heart which can actually cause a person to feel pain when they lose someone they love In addition to all of the great scientific data which is quite fascinating if you’re into details there are also some tests included in this book which you can take to help you determine what type of lover you are In the back of the book there is a section called “The Joy Diet” which gives you some ideas of the types of foods that are best for brain and heart health I especially appreciated the section on “Women and Hormones” which offers some great advice and resources

    I found this book very helpful I discovered my boyfriend's and my love style pretty easily and am using suggestions for a better and loving relationship helpful The book This Is Your Brain In Love has latest neuroscience available on the five loving types Although I focused on my boyfriend's and my own loving styles yet it was interesting to read about other loving styles The book which states in a blurb why we choose certain loving styles over others was not that clearly defined or gone into detail So I find the blurb misleading when the focus is mainly on improving your own loving style I don't need the author Dr Henslin telling me what I already know which is my boyfriend and I have similar loving types which is one thing we have in common and helpful to better understanding one another I do appreciate the additional information that Dr Henslin offers for improvement I found the book intelligently written and user friendly and so does my boyfriend
