What is a loving person? This book attempts to answer this question in two major sections. The first part deals with the nature of loving, different conceptions of love, types of love, stroking, and a review of the ideas of Erich Fromm, Leo Buscaglia, and John Gray. The second part deals with the relationship of love to sex, marriage, friendship and death. The special quality of this volume is the combination of informative content, current research, dialogue, autobiographical material, open-ended questions and humorous incidents that are presented in a clear style of writing.
