Reviews

`Such common sense is, sadly, remarkable.' * <i>Evening Standard</i> * 'Haselton is part of a new conversation that is emerging; she is a pioneering researcher pushing the politics of hormones in a new direction.' * <i>Observer</i> * 'In her book she shows that there are no simple answers, but lots of fascinating possibilities, when we start to think about the biological aspects of our sexual lives.' * <i>The Sunday Times</i> * `What a refreshing book. Finally, a feminist with the courage to discuss women not as victims of their hormones but as elegantly built captains of their minds and lives.' * Helen Fisher, author of <i>The First Sex</i> and <i>Why Him? Why Her?</i> * 'A very detailed and fascinating book which explores hormones to different level. Many women (and men) should read this to understand how women's hormones can have both negative and positive effects on our lives.' * Dr Louise Newson, the Menopause Doctor * 'Anchored in deep science, Haselton takes the reader on a mesmerizing tour from the stirrings of puberty to the aftermath of menopause, from sexual fantasies to the ways in which women often call the shots in the game of mating.' * David M. Buss, author of <i>The Evolution of Desire</i> * 'Haselton shows there are no simple answers - but lots of fascinating possibilities - when we start to think about the biological aspects of our sexual lives.' * Alice Dreger, author of <i>Galileo's Middle Finger</i> * 'This book is essential reading for both women and men...Hormonal is engaging, clever, very funny at times, and always scientifically impeccable.' * Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, author of <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Zoobiquity</i> * 'Written with passion and wit, Hormonal provides important insights about the female experience.' * Joan Silk, professor, School of Human Evolution and Social Change, Arizona State University, and co-author of <i>How Humans Evolved</i> *
