Praise for How to Fall in Love with Anyone:

“In our age of total romantic confusion, Mandy Len Catron is a voice of good sense, warm humor and consoling wisdom. Through the lens of her own relationships, she teaches us—with a deft, convincing intelligence—some of the vital moves in the art of love.”
Alain de Botton, author of How Proust Can Change Your Life and The Course of Love

“A beautifully written and well-researched cultural criticism as well as an honest memoir.”
—Los Angeles Review of Books 

“A touching guide for those trying to find their way, especially in love and life’s early stages.”
The Globe and Mail

“Personal musings and reminiscences paired with solid research provide an interesting stroll through an abstract topic.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Honest and well-researched, the book will teach readers plenty about love, science, and themselves. Perfect fodder for the romantic and the cynic in all of us.”
Booklist

“Catron melds science and emotion beautifully into a thoughtful and thought-provoking meditation on the most universal topic.”
Bookpage

“It’s hard to imagine a more timely endeavour. Clear-eyed and full of heart, How to Fall in Love With Anyone is mandatory reading for anyone coping with—or curious about—the challenges of contemporary courtship.”
Toronto Star

“I am grateful to have read this honest, vulnerable, open-hearted book – a kind book, perhaps the first it’s ever occurred to me to describe that way.”
—Role Reboot

“This book is a well-written and down-to-earth exploration of love and it should help people navigate their own paths in relationships.’
—AU Review

“Catron is at her best when arguing about the cultural impact of stories such as Cinderella and deconstructing the romantic tropes, class biases and white privilege in films such as ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Maid in Manhattan.'”
—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
