"What the heck is my partner thinking?" is a common refrain in romantic relationships, and with good reason. Every person is wired for love differently, with different habits, needs, and reactions to conflict. The good news is that most people's minds work in predictable ways and respond well to security, attachment, and rituals, making it possible to actually neurologically prime the brain for greater love and fewer conflicts. Wired for Love is a complete insider's guide to understanding a partner's brain and promoting love and trust within a romantic relationship. Readers learn ten scientific principles they can use to avoid triggering fear and panic in their partners, manage their partners' emotional reactions when they do become upset, and recognize when the brain's threat response is hindering their ability to act in a loving way. By learning to use simple gestures and words, readers can learn to put out emotional fires and help their partners feel more safe and secure. The no-fault view of conflict in this book encourages readers to move past a ""warring brain"" mentality and toward a more cooperative ""loving brain"" understanding of the relationship. Based in the sound science of neurobiology, attachment theory, and emotion regulation research, this book is essential reading for couples and others interested in understanding the complex dynamics at work behind love and trust in intimate relationships.

Patroklos, ein in Ungnade gefallener Prinz im Knabenalter, wird ins Exil nach Phthia geschickt, wo er, als einer unter vielen, im Schatten des Königs Peleus und seines Sohnes Achill einsam und unbeachtet lebt, bis Achill sich eines Tages seiner annimmt. Die zaghafte Annährung entwickelt sich bald zu einer unerschütterlichen Freundschaft. Seite an Seite wachsen Achill und Patroklos zu jungen Männern heran, und bald erblüht eine zarte Liebe zwischen ihnen. Der Friede wird jedoch jäh zerstört, als Paris Helena aus Sparta entführt und sich die Männer Griechenlands zum Kampf gegen Troja versammeln. Verführt von der Prophezeiung seiner ruhmreichen Bestimmung, schließt sich Achill ihnen an. Patroklos, innerlich von Angst und Liebe zerrissen, folgt Achill in den zehn Jahre währenden Krieg, nicht ahnend, dass er das Schicksal seines geliebten Freundes in die Hände der Götter geben muss.
