Not the top human sexuality textbook I have read but I did learn about the subject at hand It was comprehensive and easy to read with jargon easily explained. Interesting but I have read a better human sexuality book by Hock.

I read this almost 20 years ago in a college class, so my memory of it isn't clear enough for me to want to rate it or make a lot of strong comments. It is textbooky, but I do recall that lot of the personal accounts it goes into were interesting and enlightening.

The first couple chapters are very interesting because it teaches me thing I am not aware of.. But the rest of the chapters convert itself into a high school textbook which is embarrassing considering the fact that I am a college student. The final chapters I skimmed while watching Mad Men while consuming Wheat Thins.

This textbook is comprehensive, organized, and well-written. It guides students and professionals alike through the subject of human sexuality as presented by experts in the field. As a psychology major specifically interested in sexual psychology and sex therapy this book was a must-have for my bookshelf.

Not my favorite course for this degree, but it is the course which made me decide to change my degree to something which will help my current career. I did like some of the information in the book and my understanding of the subject matter did expand.

Text book for Human Sexuality class I took a few months back. I found the book to be informative, but biased on the authors opinions, rather then by facts.
