Since antiquity, the story of Adam and Eve has stood at the center of every conversation about men and women, yet instead of celebrating their accomplishment, history has blamed them for bringing sin, deceit, and death into the world. Traveling from the supposed Garden of Eden in Iraq to the Sistine Chapel in Rome, the London of John Milton, and the Hollywood of Mae West, PBS host Bruce Feiler offers an insightful, humorous retelling of the tale. He suggests that there is much we can learn from Adam and Eve, who—far from being the original dysfunctional couple—may be seen as exemplars of a resilient long-term relationship.

"[This book] is full of wit and wisdom.... Feiler unfolds the history of love itself, showing how our sense of guilt and discomfort coincides with our experiences of passion, commitment, and joy."—Andrew Solomon
