Anatomy of love : the natural history of monogamy, adultery, and divorce by Helen E Fisher( Book )

67 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fisher traces the evolution of human courtship, marriage, adultery, divorce, re-marriage, and the sexual emotions back to their origins on the grasslands of Africa four million years ago. Women, men, and power, the genesis of teenage, the origin of human conscience, gender differences in the brain, and many other aspects of human sexuality take on new meaning as she follows human kind from caves in Africa through the agricultural revolution and on into contemporary Western social life. In the last chapter, Fisher looks at several modern trends and concludes that many are not new. Instead, these family patterns came across the centuries, up from primitives who wandered out of Africa millennia ago

Why him? why her? : finding real love by understanding your personality type by Helen E Fisher( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helen Fisher, one of the world's leading experts on romantic love, unlocks the hidden code of desire and attachment. Each of us, it turns out, primarily expresses one of four broad personality types--Explorer, Builder, Director, or Negotiator--and each of these types is governed by different chemical systems in the brain. Driven by this biology, we are attracted to partners who both mirror and complement our own personality type. Drawing on her unique study of 40,000 men and women, Fisher explores each personality type in detail, shows you how to identify your own type, and explains why some types match up well, whereas others are problematic.--From publisher description

The first sex : the natural talents of women and how they will change the world by Helen E Fisher( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in Chinese and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tomorrow belongs to women," notes celebrated anthropologist Helen Fisher. In her explosive new book, The First Sex, she illustrates this enticing assertion. Drawing on original research, Fisher reveals how women and their natural talents are changing the world, making them ideal leaders and successful shapers of business and society--today and on into the twenty-first century. Looking back to prehistoric times, Fisher shows how the special structure of the female brain enables women to do "web thinking" or "synthesis thinking," as compared to men's more linear or "step" thinking. With lively anecdotes and fascinating stories, Fisher reveals how women's special talents--superior verbal abilities, people savvy, acute senses, healing techniques, and more--are geared to success in today's worlds of medicine, education, communications, law, philanthropy, and government. Changes in society--the growth of the communications economy and new trends in family--are also giving women an advantage: women's unique talents are especially needed in our modern age. This eye-opening book will change the way you see yourself, your family, and the world around you, including every man and woman you meet. From the Trade Paperback edition

Emotion( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When asked to describe birth from a baby's perspective, a group of women talk about fear, elation, and other feelings, while their male counterparts summon only physical sensations. This program explores the divergent emotional tendencies of men and women, throwing gender differences into bold relief through spontaneous theatrical exercises and expert commentary. Featuring leading scientists and researchers, including anthropologist Helen Fisher, sociolinguist Deborah Tannen, psychiatrist Harrison Pope, neurologist Ruben Gur, and psychologists David Geary, Vikki Stark, and Daniel Perusse, the program juxtaposes scholarly commentary from these experts with compelling group-dynamic experiments that measure male and female strengths, weaknesses, prejudices, and potential. While confirming that expression of and reaction to emotion varies according to sex, the program also demonstrates that the male psyche values emotion no less than the female as suggested by a collaborative storytelling session in which men craft the more evocative tale
