"Love is merely a madness; and, I tell you, deserves as well a dark house and a whip as madmen do..."

So says Shakespeare, anyway. Frank Tallis might agree.

In his new book, The Incurable Romantic and Other Tales of Madness and Desire, writer and clinical psychologist Frank Tallis shares stories from his own practice of patients whose obsessive love of others has turned to madness.

Tallis joins us to talk about when too much of a good thing turns people's lives upside down.
