Aaron Thibeault (thebookreporter) | 16 comments Just finished reading 'The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction' by Larry Young. The book explores the biology and chemistry of everything from gender identity (and sexual orientation) to love (and parenting) to monogamy (and infidelity), taking us inside our bodies to investigate the genes and hormones that influence our approach to love, sex and relationships. The book is very illuminating. I've written an executive summary of the book available here:

Thanks for the heads up on The Chemistry Between Us: Love, Sex, and the Science of Attraction. It looks like fascinating reading. Based on your recommendation and the similarly glowing words of other reviewers, I've added it to my ever-growing "to-read" list.
