While on the surface, science and love seem to have absolutely nothing to do with one other, Tashiro, a relationship expert for Discovery’s Fit & Health channel, considers how employing scientific principles in a search for a mate could yield success. Tashiro tosses out three provocative questions: “What does ‘happily ever after’ really mean, and why do only three in ten people find it?” “Why do we only get three wishes for an ideal partner, and why do most people wish for the wrong things?” “What three traits should you look for in a partner if you want to improve significantly the odds of finding enduring love?” After explaining the evolutionary reasons why one is predisposed to wish for attractive, healthy mates, Tashiro emphasizes the importance of choosing the right three wishes in attracting an ideal partner. He examines potential pitfalls, like holding out for an unreasonable ideal mate, teaches readers to examine their desires and analyze existing relationships for future happiness, and spot potential red flags in seemingly sound pairings. Complete with exercises, quizzes, sound advice, and a practical yet supportive tone, Tashiro offers the closest thing to a roadmap for “happily-ever-after.” Agent: Laurie Abkemeier, DeFiore and Company.
