The Honeymoon Effect: The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth; Bruce H. Lipton, Hay House, Rs. 250

In his new book, bestselling author Bruce H. Lipton asks readers to think back about the most spectacular love affair of their lives: the Big One that toppled them head over heels. It was a time when they were exuberantly healthy, overflowing with energy, loving their lives so much they couldn’t wait to bound out of bed in the morning to experience more. It was the ‘Honeymoon Effect’ that was to last forever.

Lipton explains that this ‘Honeymoon Effect’ was not a chance event but a personal creation. This book describes how readers manifested the ‘Honeymoon Effect’ and the reasons they lost it in their lives. That knowledge empowers them to create the honeymoon again; this time in a way that ensures a happily-ever-after relationship that even a Hollywood producer would love.

Lipton covers the influence of quantum physics (good vibrations), biochemistry (love potions), and psychology (the conscious and subconscious minds) in creating and sustaining loving relationships.

To illustrate the science of creating Heaven on Earth, Lipton weaves in his own personal saga from dysfunctional relationships to his 17-year honeymoon with his partner, Margaret. The book includes a Honeymoon Effect Checklist to help readers on their own journey to creating enduring relationships.
