Are you one of the millions duped into believing there is one person determined by the fates for you, a soul mate you will love forever and a day? Prepare to throw away all your long-held beliefs as author and psychotherapist John Karter exposes the Hollywood myth of eternal bliss with 'the one and only' as delusional and dangerous.

In a ground-breaking analysis of what is really going on when we say we have 'fallen in love', the author reveals the hidden psychological agendas and the commercial forces that fuel this great lie, and the damage it inflicts in terms of broken relationships and unfulfilled human potential.

Drawing on his observations as a psychotherapist, as well as extensive research and examples from popular culture, the author shows that falling in love is not something supernatural, or determined by fate. It is a deception foisted on us on a daily basis, driven by romantic movies, novels, pop songs and dating agencies in conjunction with the media.

The central goal of the book is to contrast the delusional form of love with genuine, mature love and is encapsulated in the sub-title 'Say no to the Hollywood lie and experience real and lasting love'. Your path to real and enduring happiness begins right here!
