    Review quote
    "Superb...It could be said without fear of exaggerating that this volume is the end-all as well as the very beginning on the topic of attachment. I doubt seriously whether any researcher, scholar, student, or professional helper will be able to study, evaluate, or apply attachment without referring to Attachment in Adulthood." - PsycCRITIQUES "This rewarding journey into the vast scientific literature is appropriately cautious, avoiding excessive assumptions and conceptual leaps, yet it has breathtaking implications for helping us construct a fuller picture of the social nature of the mind and how we develop well-being in our lives." - Daniel J. Siegel, Department of Psychiatry and Center for Culture, Brain, and Development, UCLA School of Medicine, USA "Reading Attachment in Adulthood by Mikulincer and Shaver is like stepping into a classroom with two master teachers and researchers...For clinicians, this compendium of accessible clinically relevant research benefits clinical assessments and decisions about clinical interventions, and contributes to personal awareness and growth." - Clinical Social Work Journal "Mikulincer and Shaver do a superb job of showcasing just how much the field of interpersonal relationships has progressed since Hazan and Shaver decided to run a little ad for a simple self-report study in a local newspaper...A 'must read' for anyone who is interested in the science of relationships." - Jeffry A. Simpson, Department of Psychology, University of Minnesota, USA "The students in my close relationships seminar find this book extremely stimulating." - Kelly Brennan-Jones, Department of Psychology, State University of New York at Brockport, USA
