Love Has Style: What's Yours? Find Your Deeper Need for Love

Dr. Craig Martin Reveals New Method for Relationship Success in New Book, "Elemental Love Styles"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - Want to make Valentine's Day really meaningful this year? Find or create a lasting relationship by identifying your elemental love style, as defined by Dr. Craig Martin, author of "Elemental Love Styles: Find Compatibility and Create a Lasting Relationship" (Atria Books/Beyond Words, February 2, 2010, ISBN-13: 978-1-58270-256-8; $14.00 US, $18.99 Canadian).

"Our primary relationship is one of the most important things in our lives, so why do so many relationships fail?" asks Martin, "Relationships fail because people don't know what they need."

In the insightful "Elemental Love Styles," Martin provides a new, concise method for identifying your deeper needs and understanding how people love in different ways. He uses the four natural elements to represent the human personality styles: Fire (creative and enthusiastic), Air (communicative and social), Water (emotional and intuitive) and Earth (practical and grounded). This system provides people in relationships with a structured way of viewing themselves and their partners, and it gives single people tools to understand what to look for. Not sure if you're a Fire, Air, Water or Earth? The book includes an in-depth questionnaire to help you figure it out.

Throughout "Elemental Love Styles," Martin uses illustrative stories of real couples to explain the specific need for love and psychological make-up of each elemental love style. He provides advice to facilitate introspection and enable people to get along better with others and create lifelong relationships. He uses everyday analogies to simplify complex ideas like intimacy and individual potential.

"Understanding your elemental type and love style will make it so much easier for you to improve your relationship or create the relationship you want," says Martin.

Martin shows people what may come easily to certain relationships and what will be most challenging, whether it's your partner or parent or child, he helps navigate your relationship in the right direction when you experience difficulties.

"In relationships, when our deeper needs for love are met, we can achieve our full potential as human beings," says Martin.
