In today's world, "love" is a verb, much-discussed but not often achieved. Enter Gila Manolson, highly acclaimed author of such frank, down-to-earth bestsellers as The Magic Touch, Outside/Inside, and Head to Heart, and the subject of love becomes not only crystal clear, but also easily accessible. How many of us seek love from others--but ignore the fact that we don't love ourselves? This sobering, but uplifting book highlights new scientific findings on love and touch, describing the media's growing impact on self-image, contrasting this with Judaism's spirituality and wisdom. A breath of fresh air, a heaping helping of food for thought, and a lifesaver for all who have grappled with the challenge of building deep relationships and choosing to love.
