Overview

Do you remember seeing those princess movies as a child? You know, the ones where it would have this cheesy, unbelievable "love at first sight" story? The worst part was when the show would end by painting this picture of "happily ever after".

If you grew up thinking this is what your life would be like, you're probably now feeling like you've been robbed. Love is not as easy as they make it seem in the movies. It's elusive, difficult, and takes hard work to maintain. Lots of people are cynical about it, and for good reason. But there is hope.

That's why bell hooks's All About Love: New Visions is just the book you need, in order to see how all the delusions that make love so difficult actually come from society. It will also show you how to fix these beliefs to improve your relationships with yourself, a significant other, and your loved ones.

"When we face pain in relationships, our first response is often to sever bonds rather than to maintain commitment."
