Book Review: This Is Your Brain In Love by Dr. Earl Henslin

This Is Your Brain In Love by Dr. Earl Henslin I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com  in exchange for my honest opinion and review on the book.

The title itself explains that the book describes what your brain would look like when you're in love. This is what I expected anyways. There was a chapter or two going into the scientific explanations of what your brain would look like when in love. However what the book is really discusses is 5 love styles; the scattered lover, the Over-focused Lover, the Blue Mood Lover, the Agitated Lover, and the Anxious LoverWith 5 different tests, he helps you to identify what type of love style you are, and ways to improve for a healthy marriage which includes taking care of your brain. No one has a perfect relationship and we can all improve our marriages even small steps to understand each other helps and this book is one way to do that. 

What I liked about the book: It is an enjoyable read. I honestly couldn't put it down. I read it in two days. It is very informative and presented in clearly with real life examples. I enjoyed reading the stories and found them all very interesting. 

What I didn't like about the book: I am nervous that some people may take the tips in the book and self medicate when they should really see a doctor. Dr. Henslin talks a lot about brain scans and supplements and it seems that he is trying to "sell" them in the book. Also, it seems to suggest that you have an "imbalance" and I fear that one who reads this might self diagnose their self with a problem. 

Overall, I would give this book 4 stars our of 5. : )
