From the Back Cover

Human Sexuality encompasses far more than "just sex." Sexuality is fundamental to our identities as humans and it is a complex and multi-faceted subject. More than likely, you already have ideas developed around some of the topics contained within this text. You may have questions about information you've received from the media, or friends, or from prior sex education. Perhaps you are struggling with thoughts or feelings about your own sexual identity. With an emphasis on choice, awareness, and responsibility, Roger R. Hock's Human Sexuality will provide you with information and knowledge that you can apply and use for the rest of your life.

This is a college text but I purchased it for my teen and I am glad I did. Every parent should be armed with this information to help older children figure out what human sexuality is all about.

I wish I had this information when I was younger and I am glad I read it. It got me thinking about my personal values and learning a few new things as well. I am old enough that I thought I new everything there was to know but more importantly, it helped me connect with a younger generation.

I was required to purchase this book for my class. It's easy to read and understand. I especially like the fact I do not have to highlight vocabulary because they are again defined at the bottom of the page it appears on.

The online study guide is very useful as well.

got this book for my college class and it is a very good tool and a pretty easy read the author explains everything in detail. I suggested this book for people that are not even taking the class just because of how knowledgeable this text is.

The level of the material wasn't quite as advanced as I had hoped, but what was there was good. The information is current and relevant. The diagrams and pictures reflect a thoughtful and broad-minded approach to the topic. I kept the book and have referred back to it a few times to answer questions that have come up in daily life.

It's a college textbook, nothing groundbreaking. I removed two stars because it's absurdly over-priced, like all textbooks are these days. Between textbook companys and pharmaceutical companys, we're all being robbed blind.
