A Book Teaser of The Psychology of Twilight:

Edited by: E. David Klonksy (PhD), and Alexis Black (ISBN: 978-1936661121)

Synopsis: (Taken from

You’ve read the books. You’ve seen the films. Now get inside the heads of your favorite Twilight characters (just like Edward can!) in The Psychology of Twilight.

Explore the minds and motives of Bella, Edward, Jacob, and more with a deeper look at the series that’s captured the hearts—and psyches—of millions. Find out:

• How Edward and Jacob match up in an evolutionary psychology smackdown for Bella’s—and our—affection
• Whether Bella’s motorcycle-riding and cliff diving in New Moon are suicidal—or her salvation
• Why vampires and werewolves aren’t so different after all (at least psychologically)
• The emotional appeal of love stories like Bella and Edward’s
• Why being a part of Twilight fandom is good for your psychological health

Snuggle up on the closest chaise, and get ready to revisit the Twilight Saga—with some professional help.


We suspect that Bella’s attraction to Edward may be driven, in part, by a pheromone emitted by vampires that encourages humans to feel excitement and attraction, making them easier prey. What a sneaky adaptation! – Pg. 7 (Advanced Reader’s Copy)

    Interesting book choice!

  2. I was looking for a Twilight book for my daughters Christmas present. I had never expected a deeper level of psychology in the Twilight phenomena ;-) maybe this is the one to give her.

    Good idea with the teaser. I currently read a “Bicycle diaries” by David Byrne

    Teaser: “I discuss these developments, urban planning, and policy in the New York City Chapter, as well as describe my limited involvement in local politics (and entertainment) as it pertains to making my city more bike-friendly, and I think, a more human place to live.”
