'My whole life I have been searching for love,' says Robert Sternberg (p.98). 'At a personal level, after a number of false starts, I have found it. In my research - initiated when a love relationship in my personal life was failing - I have tried to come closer to understanding what love is, how it develops, and why it succeeds or fails.'
How much would you pay for an hour of love? More than you would pay to avoid an hour of disgust? Find out what researchers found on p.94 and at tinyurl.com/95bitsteep - just one of hundreds of studies covered by the Society's Research Digest, which is nearing its 10th birthday.
Also in this issue, I'd like to direct you to our regulars of 'Big picture', 'New voices', 'Looking back' and 'One on one'. We're always looking for suggestions and contributions for these sections: get in touch on [email protected].
Finally, make sure you don't miss our 'Reviews' section on p.148, now expanded to cover psychology in any form of media: TV, newspaper, web, music, exhibition, film, app, etc. Again we rely on your contributions: we would dearly love for you to get in touch.
