192 pages | Paperback
Today more than ever, love is the answer. Here is the classic instruction manual. Now reissued with a beautiful new cover, here is Erich Fromm’s ground-breaking international bestseller that has shown millions of readers how to achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love.
The renowned psychoanalyst Erich Fromm has helped millions of men and women achieve rich, productive lives by developing their hidden capacities for love. In this astonishingly frank and candid book, he explores the ways in which this extraordinary emotion can alter the whole course of your life.
Most of us are unable to develop our capacities for love on the only level that really counts—a love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage. Learning to love, like other arts, demands practice and concentration. Even more than any other art it demands genuine insight and understanding.
In this provocative, insightful book, Fromm discusses love in all its aspects; not only romantic love, so surrounded by false conceptions, but also love of parents, children, brotherly love, erotic love, self-love, and love of God.
