The following content was provided by the publisher.

The national bestseller that shows you how a better understanding of who you are will help you find and keep the love you want

Helen Fisher can often tell, almost instantly, the hidden strengths and weaknesses in a relationship that are likely to keep a couple together or pull them apart. The words they choose, their facial structure and body language, even their doodles and where they live give strong clues to their personality type. After three decades of studying romantic relationships, Fisher has discovered that your dominant personality type guides not only who you are but who you love.

"Why Him? Why Her?" provides a new way to understand relationships, whether you're searching for one or eager to strengthen the one you have. Beginning with a scientifically developed questionnaire to determine your prevailing personality type, Fisher tells you not only what type of person you might have chemistry with but how to find them, attract them, and keep them. Once you know the personality profile of the partner you're with--or hope to find--you can use your knowledge of how your types match up to improve your love life.

More than seven million people in forty countries have learned Fisher's techniques and are using these tools to make and keep lasting romantic connections. Based on proven results, this groundbreaking book goes beyond theory to show that the complex nature of romance isn't so complicated once you truly understand yourself and others. Provocative and illuminating, Fisher's book deserves to be read by everyone looking to be loved for who they really are.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2009-01-01)

Fisher (anthropology, Rutgers Univ.; Why We Love) presents her research for Chemistry. com on personality types and long-term relationships. Paralleling the theories of Hippocrates, Carl Jung, David Keirsey, and others, she posits that people fall into four different groups of inherited temperament: explorers, builders, directors, and negotiators. She offers a test for readers to find their type and thoroughly explains the traits of each temperament and the corresponding chemicals and hormones.

To illustrate these traits, Fisher assigns well-known historical figures to the types. Next, readers learn what each type is looking for in a mate, what sort of connection the different types hope to make, and how they behave in dating and relationships. Fisher explores each of the ten possible relationship combinations of the four types, describing strengths and pitfalls of each. There is also a section on the biology of first impressions and early dating behaviors. Readers seeking a long-term relationship will be interested in Fisher's ideas, and her book is recommended for larger public libraries.
