Summary
Love is a great leveller. Everyone falls in love, loses love, and knows something of love's madness. But obsessive love is no trivial matter, and in the course of his career, psychologist Dr Frank Tallis has treated many unusual patients including a widow visited by her dead husband's ghost; an academic besotted with his own reflection and a night porter possessed by a lascivious demon. These are just some of the extraordinary true accounts that take us on a journey through the darker realms of the amorous mind. Drawing on the latest scientific research, The Incurable Romantic demonstrates how love dissolves the divide between normal and abnormal
Summary
A psychologist describes the amazing stories of patients who were literally crazy in love, including a man who tries to make over 3,000 prostitutes fall in love with him and a woman who stalks her dentist
