John Milk gets a job assisting Alfred Kinsey in the collection of data for his books on human sexuality. The picture of Kinsey presented in this volume rings true to other descriptions I've read. He was fiercely committed to his research and, which in his mind outranked everything else in importance, and he expected those who worked with him to adopt similar attitudes. His studies were carried out at a time when Americans still subscribed to Victorian notions about sex. Kinsey's open-minded attitude about the subject was considered scandalous at the time, and his research generated considerable opposition. The book is an instructive account of the research upon which Kinsey's writings were based.
