My thoughts:
Love is a beautiful topic. Like the title of this book says All We Really Need Is Love! Everyone has their own stories about love and it's great to hear them. This book is written mostly as interviews. I like that because it makes me feel like I'm there getting to know the people telling their stories but at the same time I'm missing out because I can't see their expressions or hear the way they tell their stories. I enjoyed reading this book I give it 4 stars.
