I signed up for this course 3 days before the start date (which is a Friday)....I was trying to figure out how to get the book as quickly as possible and what do you know? Amazon has the text on Kindle! AWESOMENESS! Not only can I start reviewing this weekend and get a jump like I normally do on my classes but I have no worries of falling behind because I'm waiting on snail mail. Thank you Amazon!

By the way, I don't know what the other person is talking about....it works fine on my Kindle Fire and any of my Kindle apps (like the App for the Computer or iPhone) for quick reference....

I had to get this book for a human sexuality class I'm taking this semester. I'm three chapters in and I absolutely love this book. It's easy to read, straight forward, and quite enjoyable. Also, I know someone else commented that they don’t particularly like the images in the book but I find them extremely helpful and in no way offensive. I’m so happy my instructor went with this book. I’ll definitely be keeping this on my bookshelf for years to come.

I love the book but am slightly unhappy with the fact that I can only access it on my laptop an not my tablet or my phone.

For a college textbook, I was very disappointed, especially with the book being in the third edition. At first, the book is interesting, informative, and well written. I'm now halfway through the book, and have noticed some issues. The author becomes extremely redundant, as in the chapter with contraception. He seems to explore issues that people know well in excess, while brushing over information that definitely needs more details. The typos became so bad as the book went on, that I had to google some of the topics in the book, which defeats the purpose of having the book. He goes on to write, and I quote, "Pro-life supporters seek to reduce the number of abortions through education about sexuality and greater availability and use of contraception." Not only is that statement incorrect, but also has horrible grammar. The book developed this awful rushed feeling to it by the end, which caused me to get fed up with it and stop reading by chapter 9. Avoid this textbook if you have the option.

If you're wondering how many typos I found in one chapter, the record number of typos was in chapter six, with 26 typos in 38 pages. Unprofessional, at the very least.

I appreciate the book's rich illustrations, and while the content of the material is adequate, the typos in the book is unacceptable, especially when it is in its 3rd edition. Not only that, the author tense to repeat himself and it is getting boring and distracting. I honestly don't think that this book is a keeper as far as being a reference book.

I bought this book for a Human Sexuality class. I thought I would sell it once the class was finished, but it's packed full of useful information. I like it, it's one of the best textbooks I've purchased. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about any sexuality related issues.

This hardcover text book is very informative.
The readings are clear and easy and also provide examples.
It's the most up-to-date book as well. I bought it as a required text for class and has been helpful.
