In 1999–2000, Thomas David Kehoe took two relationships counseling courses in a graduate school psychology program and was surprised to learn that neither course had a textbook. One course had an excellent reading list. Using these sources Thomas David Kehoe put together a relationships counseling textbook. In 2003, Thomas David Kehoe published Hearts and Minds: How Our Brains Are Hardwired for Relationships.

Not many people bought the book, so Thomas David Kehoe decided to make the book available free at Wikibooks. That contribution formed the first version of the book here, which we the Wikibooks community are now free to improve!
