The irresistible second installment in the beloved series that has sold millions of copies worldwide. Since his first captivating adventure in Hector and the Search for Happiness , Hector the young French psychiatrist has continued to explore the mysteries of the human soul. Having found that love seems virtually inseparable from happiness, he begins taking notes on this powerful emotion. But unbeknownst to him, Clara, the doctor's beloved, is making her own investigations into love. As much a love story as a novel about love, Hector and the Secrets of Love is a feel-good life manual wrapped in a globetrotting adventure, told with the blend of a fairy tale's na#65533;ve wisdom and a satirist's dry wit that has won Hector fans around the world.

What is the secret formula for love? Hector, our intrepid psychiatrist, sets off on a new globe-trotting mission and this time he's looking for love.

One of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies has employed Hector to track down their brilliant scientist, Professor Cormorant, who has disappeared abroad with the secret of a modern-day love potion. Leaving behind his troubled relationship with girlfriend Clara, Hector's adventure takes him to the Far East and into the arms of beautiful Vayla, forcing our hero to think deeply about what love really is/means.

In his follow-up to the multi-million-selling Hector and the Search for Happiness, acclaimed writer and psychiatrist, François Lelord, offers us a new fable filled with thoughtful insights into the very human desire to find and keep love.
