"A visionary and accessible book, bell hooks's All About Love offers radical new ways to think about love. Here, hooks, one of our most acute social critics, takes the themes that put her on the map - the relationship between love and sexuality, and the interconnectedness between the public and the private - and challenges the prevailing notion that romantic love is more important than all other bonds." "All About Love is a blueprint for finding myriad types of love, which hold the redemptive power to change our minds and lives."--Jacket.

Really solid read. I love how effortlessly Bell Hooks breaks down seemingly abstract concepts into concrete ideas using simple language. Unlike so much theory, the way Hooks talks about representations of love in media, or collective love ethic, or patriarchy or feminism in this work, never feels heady, deterministic or nihilistic. Instead her explanations and solutions are simple, and her encouragement to act on these ideas is motivating.

All About Love by bell hooks is the best book I have ever read on the subject. Not only is this book about personal relationships, but it defines the core of all of life. Love is about humanity, and how each person relates to the world. The information in this book can be applied to any situation. It is a guide for living, really. If you can change your definition of love, what it really means and how it is truly expressed, you can change your life. If enough people do that, we can change the world.
