Reviews

"Cacioppo blends memoir and science in her debut, an enlightening testament to love's ability to enhance one's life... Readers will be both fascinated and moved." --Publishers Weekly

"Cacioppo's writing becomes more intimate as her life story stitches closer to her research. Her conclusion is enchanting and uplifting... A beautiful testament to romantic love, scientific passion, and the endless possibility of connection." --Kirkus

"...an engaging guide through the scientific portions of the book, and her own experiences of connection and loss enrich the narrative. Together, these intertwined strands of science and personal narrative make for a sprightly, illuminating book." --BookPage

"Filled with a little something for everyone, Wired for Love is a unique take on a memoir that will take you on a journey of grief and healing with a reminder to keep your heart open to all the beauty and pain that life might bring." --Mindful Magazine

"When John and Steph met it was electric, consuming, forever. One might even say 'wacky' from the start. But then their love grew to be inseparable, collaborative, joyous, and infinitely inventive. And while their scholarship and devotion to science hit new levels, it was their bond in love that was a joy to know. THIS BOOK CAPTURES THAT JOY." --Michael Gazzaniga, author of The Consciousness Instinct

"This meditation on love is deep in every sense: in scientific richness, in human insight, and in moving personal involvement." --Steven Pinker, author of How the Mind Works
