Also on February 11th Judith Horstman will be reading from her newest book, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain: The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love. She will be at Book Passage at the same time as the Left Coast Writers Pre-Valentine’s Day Lovefest, and we hope she will stop by for a toast.
In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God.
“This wonderful and accessible book will definitely make you rethink what you thought you knew about love. It does an outstanding job making a tremendous amount of data about such an important topic easy and fun to understand.”
—Andrew Newberg, MD, director of research, Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital; coauthor, How God Changes Your Brain
