really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction
Read from April 15 to 19, 2012

My third book of Roach's. As usual, she is funny and informative. My only minor complaint was a tendency to start a chapter with a theme/story, and then to get off track and end up relating a series of interesting factoids (or funny footnotes). I still learned a ton of interesting stuff about sex research and sex in general, but I do wish it had been a bit more pulled together. A minor quibble, though, and I would recommend it to any fan of popular science writing.
