It doesn’t take a trained psychologist to see that the Twilight Saga has tapped into its readers’ psyches . . . but psychology has plenty to offer when it comes to understanding what makes Twilight so dearly loved.

Led by husband-and-wife team E. David Klonksy, PhD, and Alexis Black, the psychologists contributing to The Psychology of Twilight look at love, family, vampires, werewolves, and our Twilight obsession, and offer more than a dozen fascination new angles on the series?just in time for the November 2011 release of Breaking Dawn, part one.

Why Edward captivates Bella (it’s not the perfect face or chiseled abs?it’s as chemical as Edward’s attraction to the smell of Bella’s blood)
Vampirism as eating disorder (and what we can learn from how the Cullens cope)
Twilight’s rejection of strict dualities like good/evil and human/monster and what that has to do with the way our minds process experience and information
The psychological benefits of Twilight fandom

. . . and more fresh insights into the series that’s enthralled millions.
