January’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017

I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a January’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2017 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.

PaperbackWe all want to be loved. The good news? Everyone falls in love, most of us more than once. Falling in love is innate and inevitable, and the process seems the same for all people in all places in all times. In True Love, the first book on love and the brain written by a neurologist, you’ll learn what actually happens in your brain while seeking love, and well after. Dr. Nour details, in plain English, how our brain chemicals and genes cause love to happen in four distinct phases. He explores the genetic, chemical and behavioral aspects of each phase of love. In this book, you will discover how ‘Falling in Love’ is not ‘True Love’. You will find the answers to many questions, such as: – Why do people who has fallen in love do things that some may deem “crazy”? – What attracts us to certain people and not others? – Why do arranged marriages have a lower divorce rate? – Is falling out of love really “the end?” – Are certain behaviors exhibited by a mate that aren’t actually love, yet appear to be? – What is the difference between love in heterosexuals and homosexuals? – Could love be a disease or an addiction? – Are sex and love really the same? – Is there anything we can do to grow our current love into True Love? – Why do we always marry the wrong mismatching partner? – Can marriage of convenience result in True Love? Is there a biological reason for this? – Has love changed over the centuries? – Why do we need love? – Can understanding “falling out of love” help reduce divorce rates? Dr. Nour hopes that this information, rooted in science, will better inform your future decisions and expectations in relationships, ultimately leading to unions that are more genuine, rewarding, meaningful and permanent. Whether you’re in a relationship, still looking for that special someone, or want insights to make your next relationship last for a lifetime, you’ll find True Love a vital and eye-opening resource.
