Psychologists know best, of course, and in the 1950s they warned parentsabout the dangers of too much love. Besides, what was "love" anyway?Just a convenient name for children seeking food and adults seeking sex. It tookan outsider scientist to challenge it. When Harry Harlow began his experimentson mother love he was more than just an outside the mainstream, though. He was adeeply unhappy man who knew in his gut the truth about what love -- and itsabsence -- meant, and set about to prove it. His experiments and resultsshocked the world, and Wire Mothers & Inanimate Arms will shock youas well.

Thanks to Mr. Harlow's findings we can all hug our Moms without guilt, we're not raised in glass incubation boxes, and the word "love" is now used respectfully in scientific discussions rather than just... "proximity".
