Customer Reviews

The book is very informative and of high quality.

This book is interesting because I am using it in graduate school but it could easily be used for undergrad as well.
Counselor Hope
This book was required reading for a college class and was easy to read.

We needed the 12th edition of this book for my college human sexuality class, but I bought this (11th edition) in order to save money. The book itself is in good condition with some highlights throughout the text (as can be expected in a used book). Also, it has the same information as the 12th edition, so it satisfies the text book requirement for the school course.

I ordered this textbook because I needed it for my Human Sexuality course, but it's turning out to be a fun read even separate from class. It's very informative and well-written; it begins by defining "sexuality" and delves deeper into what we know about sex today. I usually want to sell my used books after a class ends but I am keeping this one--it's too good to give up! ;)

I had to get this for a class, but I found it incredibly easy to read and interestingly-written. I'm admittedly a nerd and keep all my textbooks instead of reselling, but I have referred this one several times since I took the class, so I'm especially glad I kept it. I highly recommend this book, even if you just get it as a reference addition to a personal or academic library.

This book is awesome, not only for class but for anyone that wants to know more about human sexuality. I have had two classes (one lower level and one upper level) at two different schools that use this as the text. It is a real eye opener to other cultures and how their sexual behavior is different than ours. Sometimes shocking, sometimes amazing, always informative!

I had to get this book for a Human Sexuality class I was taking in Grad school for my counseling studies and the course was given by none other than Yvonne Fulbright herself. One of the best classes I have ever taken and the book is not only good for the class but also for personal insight and discovery as well. Quick delivery too!!! Thank you!!! A+++

I had to have this book for class. You'll love this book if you love the sexual revolution. If you think the sexual revolution went a little to far, you won't like it.

Rented this book for school but I'm thinking about buying it. Very interestig and informative. The book was delivered as scheduled and, should I not choose to buy it, it's not due back until well after the semester is over.
