Loved it! The author does an excellent job of presenting large philsophical ideas about love in short segments. It's very accessible; I'd even say easy to read. It's not a scholarly tome and trust me, in no way dry and boring. However, that is not to say that it isn't well-researched or that the author doesn't know what he's talking about. It's a great example of an academic work that is accessible to all readers.
Each section is just long enough to convey the story and ideas of each philosopher and just short enough to keep the reader engrossed. I read this before bed and kept telling myself "one more entry before I go to sleep". Before I knew it, I had finished the book. Perfect length to keep your attention and the author's humorous commentary had me laughing out loud.
I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys biographical trivia, philosophy, humor, or sordid stories.
