    Essays in Love will appeal to anyone who has ever been in a relationship or confused about love. This book charts the progress of a relationship between a man and a woman, from their first kiss to the onset of anxiety and heartbreak. The work's genius lies in the way it minutely analysis emotions we've all felt before but have perhaps never understood so well. It includes a chapter on the anxieties of when and how to say 'I love you' and another on the challenges of disagreeing with someone else's taste in shoes. While gripping the reader with the talent of a great novelist, de Bottom brings a philosopher's sensibility to his analyses of the emotions of love, resulting in a genre breaking book that is at once touching and thought provoking.
