The Science of Happily Ever After

In The Science of Happily Ever After, Dr. Tashiro explains how we can be smarter about one of the most important choices in our lives: who we choose as our romantic partner. With wit and insight, he explains the science behind finding a great partner and distills his research into actionable tips, including:

  • Why you get only three wishes when choosing your ideal partner

  • Why most people squander their wishes and end up in unfulfilling relationships

  • How wishing for the three traits that really matter can help you find enduring love

Illustrated using entertaining stories based on real-life situations and backed by scientific findings from fields such as demography, sociology, and psychology, Dr. Tashiro’s book provides an accessible road map to help people everywhere find their happily-ever-afters.
