About the Book: For the first time in the history of mankind, I propose a definition of love that you can instantly verify and agree.

It also gives a way to measure your love for all in your life.

What is Love? By VijayS Sharma

About the Author

Vijay S. Sharma lives in Gurugram, India with his family. He is a CA and MBA (ISB) and has worked in the corporate world at senior most positions.
Other than being an author, he is a poet, screenplay writer, actor and director. A Hindi feature film called Andh: Let’s Play Blind based on his English novel Let’s Play Blind has been produced. A poetry book written by him that contains a single poem which has been translated into  60 languages so far, is also in the process of being published. It’s called The Chosen One: Mother & Son.
Note from the Author
As I searched for the meaning, causes and process of love over the years, I discovered 3 elements that explain every kind of love. I then spent more countless days and nights to devise a single and simple mathematical formula that can help a person quantify his / her love or hate for any other person, pet, causes or objects. This formula can be applied for any period or any transaction.
I share this insight through this book to help the reader to get answers to every question related to love and use the knowledge to fill his / her heart with more love and spread the love.
I am thankful to my friends Vijayant and Gunjan Saigal, Gursimran Kaur, Mahima and Aman. They debated for hours with me to find out any holes in the theory. All of them admitted that there were no holes. However, I was there to explain any doubts and remind then the definition of the terms used in my theory.  The terms used in the theory need to be interpreted as per their definitions provided. If not, the reader may not be able to appreciate the theory.
I will be happy to get any questions or comments from the readers on my website  iOS and Android Apps are under development. They will help the users with a method to save their scores for different Subject 2s in their lives and exchange scores with them.
About the book and Table of Contents
In the entire history of mankind,
–        No one has been able to provide an acceptable definition or the acceptable conditions of love. No one has even claimed to have provided such a definition with proof.
–        No one has ever provided a definition that can be applied to all kinds of love. Be it between parents and their children, siblings, friends, couples, for pets, or for causes and for material things.
–        No one has been able to differentiate between love for, say, a child, country, or ice cream using the same definition or any other measure.
–        No one has even attempted to provide a measure of love. A measure that would allow one’s love for different subjects to be measured and compared.
–        No one has attempted to provide any specific measures that would allow you to know if someone loves you.
–        No one has provided any convincing answers to how you can possibly attract love.
That was until now.

Some of the book reviews by Readers:

I never ever thought one can give a single definition of love for all kinds of love and can provide a formula to calculate love. There is an app on iOS and Android that helps you calculate your love for others, others love for you exchange your score with the other person so you can work on the relationship to make it more loving, longer lasting.

Excellent book! It is almost unbelievable how simple the theory is and how it applies to every human relationship with other humans or pets, things or even God. The measurement of lover and hate is quite accurate too, I would say. I would recommend everyone to read it and every library in the world to have this book.

The word is ‘unbelievable’.
It’s fascinating how the author has quantified the aspects of human nature and used it to reach a conclusion that plays an integral part in our lives.
The book complements the phone app which is as good.
