There are plenty of books that offer advice about how to find or keep love in your life. But what can we learn from those who've gone to the extremes of love and desire? Liz Langley answers that question in Crazy Little Thing, a light-hearted look at the science of why we long for love. She deciphers how the burbling, boiling soup of endorphins, hormones and neurotransmitters that spill from our brain make us do things, in the name of love, that would otherwise be viewed as insane. From the greatest breakup story ever told to the psychologists and scientists who can explain our bad behavior, Langley reveals the control our chemicals have over us in this hilarious, confounding and too-strange-to-be-anything-but-true look at love.
LIZ LANGLEY's writing has appeared in AlterNet, Salon, Jezebel, Details, Glamour, and Bust. She has won awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Florida Press Association, and Association of Alternative Newsweeklies. She lives in Orlando, FL.
