The new book from Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Myths of Love, is a smart and sexy look at ancient mythology

For the ancient Greeks and Romans, love was sweet, but it was also irrational, cruel, and often deadly. Faced with this terrible paradox, classical civilization produced some of the most psychologically insightful myths of all time — stories of classic archetypes such as Narcissus, Helen of Troy, and Venus and Adonis.

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, America’s favorite sex therapist, analyzes these ancient myths and their relevance to 21st century relationships in her new book Myths of Love: Echoes of Ancient Mythology in the Modern Romantic Imagination (Quill Driver Books, June 2014).

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”, America's most famous sex therapist.
