"A scholastic masterpiece....The best and most up to date review of the neurobiology of sexual orientation in print....This book should be required reading for all psychiatrists and is strongly recommended for all physicians who will be caring for gay and bisexual men with AIDS in the years to come." --Newsletter of the Psychiatric Medical Association of New Mexico
"An internationally recognized expert on problems of gender identity, Money examines the cultural, physiological, and personal history factors that determine sexual orientation and its disorders . . . . His discussion of the development of 'lovemaps' (the picture one has of the idealized lover or love object) helps explain sexual behavior that otherwise would seem irrational. Illustrative case histories are frequently used. There is an excellent glossary . . . . This is a book for specialists and is recommended for university libraries." --Choice
"The author addresses important scientific and social questions, and it is clear that he has devoted many years of thoughtful attention to them." --Journal of the American Medical Association
