Everyone has an opinion on attraction, dating, and relationships - but their opinions are usually based on a sample size of one, themselves. Utilizing studies both new and classic helps us reach a deeper understanding of ourselves and others - why we like who we like and what to do about it. The Science of Attraction is part textbook, with peer-received research, and part advice manual, with thorough analysis and takeaways to create better relationships. If you want to understand people better, from first dates to close friends, this book has the scientific insight to reach epiphanies. What about attraction will you learn?
Here's a peek at some of the chapters:
1. The Four-Step Sequence to Flirting, Sex, and Love
2. How to Create Electric Touch
4. The Sexiness of Unavailability
5. Five Modes of Effective Flirting. Interested in More?
10. Freud's Saving Grace
12. "Let's Just Be Friends."
14. What's Kink Got to Do With It?
15. The Ugly Truth of Beauty
Attraction isn't just about romance and dating - it's how you relate to everyone in your life. Learning the science of attraction opens your eyes to how people think, and if you know how someone thinks...you're in. Of course, this knowledge will help you understand the object of your affection, whether married or still hunting/dating, to create more positivity and occasionally make you a mind reader. It's powerful knowledge to have and internalize.

Wished it was more scientific
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would divide this book into two parts: flirtation tactics and engineering of relationships.
Conclusion of the first part is - "It depends". The fact that "it depends" is the reason why people read books to understand and get answers rather than just ask correct questions.
Second part was pretty good. I like bravery of the author not to follow traditional political correctness, when the truth is against it. It felt much better researched with referencing some experiments and giving good explanations.
Overall I would recommend to a friend, if main goal is to understand relationships rather than "picking up hot girl".
Any additional comments?
After listening this, still in search for the better book about this subject.

Beginning to get it!
Having attended an all girls school and being naturally shy, I didn't really get relationships until I read this! Thank you :-)

I have been reading and listening to a lot of book on this topic. This one is written in an accessible, pompous free and engaging tone without compromising academic credibility. A good introduction to the topic.
