Crazy Little Thing" is a look at why people want to be in love and the burbling, boiling soup of endorphins, hormones, and neurotransmitters that spill from the brain to make them do things that would otherwise be viewed as insane. Langley reveals the control that chemicals have in a hilarious, confounding--and too strange to be anything but true--look at love.
