Dr. Helen Fisher, whom Time magazine called the queen mum of romance research, is an internationally renowned biological anthropologist and the world's most quoted expert on the science of human attraction.

More than ten million people in 40 countries have taken Fisher's personality test. She has authored five internationally best-selling books, appeared on most major news outlets, including The Today Show, 20/20, The Colbert Report and Oprah, and lectured at the Smithsonian, TED, Harvard Medical School, The World Economic Forum at Davos, and the United Nations and many other podiums. Her recent book, Why Him? Why Her?, discusses why we are naturally drawn to particular people, how to read your date, and how to achieve natural intimacy with him or her. When asked whether all her basic research has jeopardized her own feelings of romantic love, she replies, "You can know every single ingredient in a piece of chocolate."
