I read A General Theory of Love, and I found it fascinating and helpful. It really helped me understand some of my relationships better. Especially the power of my relationship with my therapist. It's mostly about attachment, and how that is part of the wiring of mammals. Apparently, it drives all types of behavior that might seem mysterious, but is really designed to enhance our survival.
It has an evolutionary slant, so if that is bothersome, this wouldn't be a satisfying book to read.
