From the Back Cover:

Relationship experts can tell us how to find a mate, save our marriage, or improve our sex life, but their advice is meaningless unless we can experience and master that underlying, magical, incredibly powerful emotion that binds us together no matter what.

Thirty-two marriage and family experts set aside their professional personae to explain the wild and wonderful, irrational and passionate mystery of love. Written with simplicity and warmth, this book ultimately illuminates a deep and compassionate vision of what constitutes truly happy long-term relationships. Also included are pearls of wit and wisdom from celebrity couples, including Cokie and Steve Roberts, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, George and Barbara Bush, Christopher Reeve and Dana Morosine, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, and others. Why Do Fools Fall in Love? will be cherished by all couples (and aspiring couples) who want to understand and energize that transformative power of love.

Experts and celebrities unravel the mysteries and secrets of passionate, long-lasting love

"There's a special level of affection that is based on longevity, on knowing each other well over a period of time and going through many things together, happy and sad." --Cokie Roberts

"Once we have experienced love, nothing in life is quite the same and nothing in life can do what love does." Howard J. Markman
