Drawing on the latest research on human personality and the seminal work of Abraham Maslow, Hoffman and Weiner highlight twelve key traits that underlie romantic compatibility. These traits acknowledge the unique blends of attitudes, needs, motivations, and physical and emotional attributes that make up an individual. The closer the match between partners on the twelve traits, the more joyful the bond. Entertaining stories illustrate the various combinations, and simple, easy-to-score self-tests help readers gain crucial knowledge about themselves to aid in the quest for the perfect partner. Based on the work of Abraham Maslow, The Love Compatibility Book offers a new perspective and method for finding one's true love. Psychologists and authors of numerous books, Edward Hoffman and Marcella Bakur Weiner live in the New York metropolitan area.
