We've all seen them: that annoying couple that is always bickering, always arguing, always seeming to be on the verge of a breakup (think Ethel and Fred Mertz), yet somehow, keeps the relationship going, actually staying married till death do them part. And then there's the couple that's simply perfect for each other. Maybe he was the captain of the football team and she was the prom queen. They finish each other's sentences. They habitually exhibit public displays of affection. Somehow, though, they're unable to keep it together and end up splitting up, frequently not even sure themselves why it happened. How do these things happen? What is it that determines which relationships will work and which are destined to fail? Robert J. Sternberg, a professor of psychology at Yale University and author of Successful Intelligence, has developed the theory of a "love story" to help explain how relationships function, which he explores in his groundbreaking book, Love Is a Story.

Sternberg purports that each one of us creates a love story for ourselves. These stories are created unconsciously and usually at a fairly young age. When we get older, Sternberg tells us, our relationships are dictated by the kind of stories we have created, often causing difficulty when our partner's stories are incompatible with our own. In his illuminating work, Sternberg first briefly explains where our stories come from and how we formulate them. Then, in the bulk of the text, he identifies 26 different kinds of love stories, giving two case studies for each one. The types range from the war story to the house and home story to the science-fiction story. The positive and negative attributes for each are given, plus a small questionnaire to determine if you fall into a particular pattern. The last section of the book examines the implications of what you've learned.

Sternberg has some interesting points in his book--and certainly learning what kind of unconscious love patterns you hold onto is helpful--but at times the view seems rather bleak. All of the stories seem to have significant downsides to them, perhaps making the reader reluctant to identify with any particular group. Also, as you are sure to be more multidimensional than the rather flat characters in the case studies, you are likely to fall into more than one group, which, Sternberg permits, is a possibility, but it makes it more difficult to attack the problems at hand. His book, however, is a unique study presenting new ideas that make a lot of sense and could explain your relationship trends. Love Is a Story just may give you valuable insight into why your relationships may or may not be working and give you the knowledge you need to help you find the right person. --Jenny Brown -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
If you ever question why we fall in love, why we choose our romantic partners, why we stay in relationships, the author has answers that will shock and haunt you -- or at least that was what I found upon reading this book. And it all made sense, especially in the weeks after reading it, when I considered and reconsidered all that was said. Every possible love relationship is studied, and every possible explanation emerges. You will understand yourself more and understand others as well. Just fascinating, and as you practice what the author has preached, you'll start to discover that he is right.

As a Psychologist,I've been using this book with many of my clients. It is great for getting people to consider their own part in ongoing relationship problems (i.e. figuring out their own love story), as well as for helping people assess their partner's role in the problems (i.e. assessing their partner's love story). I am getting excellent feedback for my clients regarding the book's helpfulness.

Sternberg beschreibt in seiner neuen Theorie der Liebe, dass wir jeder unsere eigene Vorstellung von Liebe haben und diese sich in Form von einer oder mehreren Geschichten darstellen lassen. Die (selbst-konstruierten) Geschichten wirken dann in unserem Unterbewußtsein wie ein heimliches Drehbuch und bestimmen unsere Handeln in der Partnerwahl, in der Beziehung und bei Trennungen.Weiter listet Sternberg 26 prototypische Geschichten auf und man kann sogar selbst, durch in dem Buch enthaltenden Fragebogen, "seine" Geschichte(n) herausfinden.
Die Kernidee der selbstkonstruierten Vorstellungen über Liebe lehnt sich an den Konstruktivismus an, wie ihn beispielsweise auch Watzlawick beschriebt. Es ist ein fruchtbarer Erklärungsansatz was Paare zusammenhält und wie Paare sich finden und wieder trennen. Das war es dann aber auch schon. Zumal die Idee so neu ja auch nicht ist. Neu sind die aufgelisteten Geschichten und der dazugehörige Test. Es ist ein Test wie man sie auch in diversen Frauenzeitschriften findet und geht über dieses Niveau auch nicht hinaus. Nett zu lesen, aber wissenschaftlicht nicht haltbar. Die Fragen zu heterogen, missverständlich und/oder ungenau, die Geschichten selber meist sehr vage. Die Prognosen, über den Verlauf von Beziehung mit dieser oder jener Geschichte, bleiben reine Spekulation und können nicht belegt werden. Allenfalls brauchbar als Heuristik (für den praktischen Anwender), aber auch hier nur mit vorsicht. Interessanter ist Sternbergs erste Liebestheorie (Dreickstheorie der Liebe) und auch besser belegt.

I love this book. It isn't THE answer but it fills in an essential part of the equation that we call "relationship." Sternberg gave me a great deal to think about and a new perspective on my own relationships.

HASH(0x9c813804) von 5 Sternen Be the author of your own Love Story 10. Januar 2001
Von Ta-Wei Wang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Many couples end up with fight, conflict, or separation. Probably it is because they have different Love Stories which can not match perfectly. Robert J. Sternberg is a leading schalor on the psychology of love. Barrowing from the latest view of narrative psychotherapy approach, Sternberg uses qualitative study to interview people and finds out several kinds of common Love Stories. You may belong to one or more Stories. The most important implications of the book is that you have to find the right one whose love story matches yours. I find the ideas very useful in my work of counseling college students. Love and relationships are the core issues during this developmental stage. I recommend it to all who are troubled by their own intimate relationships. Counselors and therapists will also gain a lot of insight reading this book!

HASH(0x9c813720) von 5 Sternen Finally a Story Written Just For You 17. Mai 2009
Von Ahmet Celebiler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have recommended this book and given it as presents to people with broken and/or problematic relationships, and to young people considering new relationships. "Love is a Story" provides a different perspective to understanding relationships without accusations and remorse. The book allows one to review past and current relationships calmly and dispassionately.
However, unfortunately, most people prefer ego trips, finding scapegoats and blaming a partner. If you have already made your final analysis of your partner and your relationship, this book will probably not convince you that the situation is also part of your making and that there is a high possibility that your next relationship may follow a similar pattern.
But, if you are able to view objectively, the book will give you the means of analysing your part, your partner's part and the resulting story of the relationship, so that you may discuss things with your partner on the same basis and not fall into further traps.
I recommend the book strongly to psychologists, psychiatrists (not psychoanalysts)and people who are into new relationships (and have some doubts,) as well as amateur and professional life-coaches. You may find it fun to read and discuss with your partner even if you have a terrific relationship. It may give you a good feeling to be able to say, "This is our Story, isn't it wonderful!"
