They may be like oil and vinegar, but polar opposites have a long history of complementing each other. It's why the wallflower is attracted to the life of the party, why the straight man works so well against the slapstick comedic sidekick, and why the dark and brooding seek out the fair and lighthearted. It Takes Two salutes the many different varieties of "two kinds of people" and their often at-odds relationships with one another.
Brimming with three hundred humorous observations and keen cultural insights, It Takes Two boasts engaging quips and wisdom from such notable figures as:
Joe Frank: "There are two kinds of relationships--those that fail and those that are difficult."
Judge Judy Sheindlin: "My mother once said to me there are two kinds of people, ulcer-givers and ulcer-getters. And my grandmother used to say to me, 'It's better to give than to receive.'
Tennessee Williams: "There are two kinds of love. There is benign love and there is malignant love."
Marlo Thomas: "There are two kinds of people: those who stop at an accident and those who drive by."
From politicians to playwrights, columnists to novelists, critics to humorists, musicians to sports stars, It Takes Two is an eclectic treasure trove of collective wisdom about opposites and the world they share.
