Sexuality textbooks often are written for lower-level courses, take a biological/health perspective, and treat topics in a relatively general, if not superficial, way. This sophisticated and advanced upper-level text centers more on the exploration of scientific theory than a presentation of ''facts.'' The book covers many of the topics typically covered in human sexuality courses (e.g., anatomy, physiology, gender, love and relationships, development, reproductive issues, disorders); however, coverage will be presented from a psychological perspective, and the larger focus will be on the scientific investigation of sexuality and a review of the scientific literature. By covering fewer topics in a greater level of depth, the author is able to delve into the interesting details of how behavioral scientists gather, evaluate, organize, and synthesize material. He also emphasizes the scientific investigation of sexuality, offering a solid review of the research literature.

"Although intended as a textbook, this accessible book could as well serve in an academic collection as a useful source of background material for a variety of readers."-รก
