Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Mating Game is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, introductory text about human mating relationships aimed specifically at a university audience.  It progresses beyond a psychological or biological/physiological stance and encompasses a wide array of disciplines.  The comprehensive review and up-to-date information contained in The Mating Game not only provides answers to questions about important life events but also encourages readers' interest in the field of interpersonal relationships and human mating.

—SirReadaLot.org (Savannah Jones SirReadaLot.org 2008-04-04)

"Pamela Regan's writing style moved a chapter along at a brisk pace, but by chapter's end I felt that the topic had been covered fully and relatively completely. As a seasoned professional in the area, the book was an excellent review." (Clyde Hendrick 2009-04-06)

About the Author

Pamela Regan is Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Social Relations Lab at California State University, Los Angeles. She received her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Minnesota. Her research interests are in the areas of close relationships and human sexuality, with an emphasis on passionate love, sexual desire, and mate preference. She is a young "up-and-coming" professor (Ph.D. 1994) who has already established a name for herself by publishing over 40 journal articles, book chapters, and reviews (and giving close to 60 professional presentations) on the dynamics of sex, love, and human mating. She is the coauthor, with Ellen Berscheid, of Lust: What We Know About Human Sexual Desire (Sage Series on Close Relationships, 1999).

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, written by current CSULA professor. Even for those not studying psychology, this book is easy to understand and insightful. I definitely recommend this book.

The book is really good and service was good as usual. The Mating Game is more informative about many interesting topics and not all just about intercourse.
