IMG_0288_LEGAL FACEOxford University Press United States senior editor Abby Gross has acquired world English rights, excluding Canada, to  Emotional Promiscuity: The Science of Serial Romance, by Dr. Daniel Jones, the world’s leading researcher into why some people tend to fall in love fast, easily, and often. Like Susan Cain’s Quiet, Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence, or Philip Zimbardo’s The Lucifer Effect, Emotional Promiscuity: The Science of Serial Romance is a groundbreaking examination of a trait most Westerners can recognize but don’t quite understand. It is a popular psychology/science book for anyone who is curious about how and why people fall in love.

Dr. Daniel Jones is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas. He runs the university’s Dark Triad and Corporate Crime Laboratory, which focuses on the “Dark Triad” of personality: psychopathy, Machiavellianism, and narcissism. Jones is a specialist in the emerging field of emotional promiscuity, and created the peer-reviewed EP Scale, which measures a person’s tendency toward emotional promiscuity. He received his Ph.D. in Personality/Social Psychology from the University of British Columbia, where he was a postdoctoral researcher under world-renowned psychopathy researcher Dr. Robert Hare.

Jones is represented by Page Two principal and Transatlantic agent Trena White.
