Dr. Helen Fisher is a leading biological anthropologist in an exciting and ever changing field of study in the scientific community today. She is a Research Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers University, a nationally known speaker and educator and an internationally recognized author of five ground breaking books on the evolution of human sexuality. A lifetime of study and scientific research has made her one of the foremost authorities on such topics as lust, romantic attraction and attachment. Her books have translated her years of scholarly study and laboratory experimentation into readily understandable mainstream ideas and information for an ever widening reading audience on such topics as monogamy, adultery, and divorce, the chemistry of love, gender differences in the brain, and casual sex . Fisher has looked at marriage and divorce in 58 societies, adultery in 42 cultures, patterns of monogamy and desertion in birds and mammals, and gender differences in the brain and behavior.
Now in her new book, soon to be released in paperback, “WHY HIM? WHY HER?: Finding Real Love By Understanding Your Personality Type,” she reports on four biologically-based personality types, and using data on 28,000 people collected on the dating site Chemistry.com, she explores who you are and why you are chemically drawn to some types more than others.
