Product Description & Reviews
A psychologist explores the intersection of love and madness through the riveting stories of the patients he has treated.
In The Incurable Romantic, Frank Tallis recounts the extraordinary stories of patients who are, quite literally, madly in love: A woman becomes utterly convinced that her dentist is secretly infatuated with her and drives him to leave the country; a man destroys his massive fortune through trysts with more than 3,000 prostitutes - because his ego requires they fall in love with him; a beautiful woman's pathological jealousy destroys the men who love her.
Along the way, we learn a great deal about the history of psychiatry and the role of neuroscience in addressing disordered love.
Elegantly written and infused with deep sympathy, The Incurable Romantic shows how all of us can become a bit crazy in love.
