Most of us are unable to develop our capacities for love on the only level that really counts--a love that is compounded of maturity, self-knowledge, and courage. Learning to love, like other arts, demands practice and concentration. Even more than any other art it demands genuine insight and understanding. In this startling book, Fromm discusses love in all its aspects; not only romantic love, so surrounded by conceptions, but also love of parents for children, brotherly love, erotic love, self-love, and love of God.
This book is a classic. I was introduced to it by a friend and have become a disciple of the book since then. This book gives a very systematic and convincing analysis of love - a contrary analysis to the dominant understanding today. Love does not happen, it is a decision of the will - not a random event that starts at random and ends randomly, as epitomized by srk movies :), rather it is a conscious choice, not a fleeting emotion. Pl try this book to understand an alternative that many of us may know and agree but would have never articulated it. The author is a great psychologist of his times.
