The bonds we are capable of feeling toward other people—how we know and belong to one another—provide fascinating glimpses into the intricacies of human behavior. Intimacy is that moment when our true identity is revealed to another, when traumas, fears, and ambitions are shared. Through the ordinary stories of eight relationships, Giovanni Frazzetto has woven an extraordi The bonds we are capable of feeling toward other people—how we know and belong to one another—provide fascinating glimpses into the intricacies of human behavior. Intimacy is that moment when our true identity is revealed to another, when traumas, fears, and ambitions are shared. Through the ordinary stories of eight relationships, Giovanni Frazzetto has woven an extraordinary narrative of togetherness.

    This book has no discernible theme or thesis. Mr. Frazetti presents inconclusive accounts of various relationships (or people who lack relationships) salted with enough hormones and neurotransmitters to add a scientific patina. Recommended for those who like to talk about relationships at sleepovers, but never come to any conclusions before they fall asleep.

    This one is actually a pretty interesting read. The author used several realistic short stories to demonstrate her theories. The stories are not too bad to read. Though I wasn't all that interested in the theory part, I agreed with most of what I read. This one is actually a pretty interesting read.

    it was ok, just felt that there was more story than factual evidence and learned nothing I didn't already know. I also didn't gain any deep insight into human intimacy and relationships. it was ok, just felt that there was more story than factual evidence and learned nothing I didn't already know.

    Loved the concept that this author used in this book which was to combine a bunch of short stories on love based on lovers, friends, and family. I loved how unique this book was and how many inspirational quotes that were in this book.
