Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find--and Keep--Love
Overall, this book was awesome! It could be simplistic at times and was definitely hetero-normative; however, it defined anxious, avoidant, and secure attachment styles in great detail. It could be a great exploration tool for those wanting to know more about their relationship dynamics. There were lots of ways to help you identify attachment styles. --Jessica Chavolla

As a clinician, it is not often that I can read a book and feel comfortable enough to immediately turn it over to my clients. It is very easy to follow, and gives detailed explanations about each attachment style. In working with my clients who have a history of trauma, attachment is a topic that we discuss often. “Attached.” offers relatable vignettes to show how attachment styles translate to everyday situations and relationships. --Lakeita Roberts
After reading this book, I was constantly printing out assessments and graphics for my clients managing relationship difficulties.
