How to use science to understand love
Understand love and be happier.
We all want to love and be loved. But, how can you seek love the correct way, if you don't understand it?
** Winner of 2018 Benjamin Franklin IBPA award **
Dr. Nour uses popular songs, poems, films, novels, anecdotes and even opera to help you understand love based on the reality of science so you can succeed in finding and maintaining true love. There is no need for any knowledge about science or medicine. The information in this book is based on physical brain science, not anthropology or psychology.
True Love details in simple terms how our genes and brain chemicals cause love to happen in four distinct phases. Each phase is illustrated using stories already known to you to help you better understand the love in your life.
Reading this book will help you answer common questions about love such as:
- How do we unconsciously select a mate to love?
- What attracts us to certain individuals and not others?
- Can falling in love last for a lifetime?
- Does falling out of love mean the end of your relationship?
- What can we do to achieve the best and longest lasting true love feeling?
- Why are you having difficulty finding the mate of your dreams?
- Is love blind?
- Is love and sex one and the same?
- Who determines the intensity of your love for your mate? Is it you or your mate?
Dr. Nour answers these and many other questions in True Love. Understanding these questions through the lens of brain science is important because there is a biological basis to mate selection and a biological rhythm to falling in and out of love. Moreover, these are based on brain-induced chemicals and genes that control many aspects of love, from the initial loving or affectionate feelings one experiences to those feelings deepening and maturing into true everlasting love.
Don’t continue to pursue love using the wrong approach!
Use True Love to understand and plan a successful, pain-free relationship that can last you a lifetime.
Easy, conversational tone...absolutely fascinating...a scintillating read."
initial reaction to True Love was that it would be written like a doctoral thesis with scientific terms and talk of brain chemicals that would bore me silly. There is nothing boring about it. This is not to say that Dr. Nour takes the romance and mystery out of the act of falling in love. Dr. Nour writes in an easy, conversational tone and his subject matter is absolutely fascinating. Anyone who's been in love, has fallen out of love and/or is looking for love will find Dr. Nour's True Love a scintillating read.

Enlightened about Love
Dr. Nour has created a roadmap, a direction finder and a compass to understanding the most complex of human emotions. Beginning with the ancient Egyptian antiquity vase and the explanation of the poem we begin our journey with a clear understanding that love transcends age, time, social demographics and culture. This book is a treasure I intend to give many of the women I sponsor... An insightful and compelling book about the most complex emotion. Beautifully crafted by an amazing doctor.

Well Written, Informative, and Fun to Read
In True Love, Dr. Nour takes our understanding of this mysterious and universally important subject to a deeper level. He explains the complex neuroanatomy and neurochemistry involved in the stages of love in clear prose and understandable analogies. Even I, a neurosurgeon who has spent much of my career looking at brains, learned a lot. This is an informative and fun read for anyone who has ever experienced the madness of love or hopes to one day. Perhaps by introducing the realism of science into Hollywood fantasy of romance, he will help more couples achieve True Love”-Matthew J. Ross, M.D.
