Really solid read. I love how effortlessly Bell Hooks breaks down seemingly abstract concepts into concrete ideas using simple language. Unlike so much theory, the way Hooks talks about representations of love in media, or collective love ethic, or patriarchy or feminism in this work, never feels heady, deterministic or nihilistic. Instead her explanations and solutions are simple, and her encouragement to act on these ideas is motivating.

All About Love by bell hooks is the best book I have ever read on the subject. Not only is this book about personal relationships, but it defines the core of all of life. Love is about humanity, and how each person relates to the world. The information in this book can be applied to any situation. It is a guide for living, really. If you can change your definition of love, what it really means and how it is truly expressed, you can change your life. If enough people do that, we can change the world.
