A groundbreaking book that redefines what it means to be in a relationship.
--John Gray, PhD., bestselling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
Discover how an understanding of adult attachment--the most advanced relationship science in existence today--can help us find and sustain love. Pioneered by psychologist John Bowlby in the 1950s, the field of attachment posits that each of us behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:- Anxious people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back
Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mate) follow, offering a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections with the people they love.
