Format: Paperback
With such an intriguing title, there was no way I could pass up entering the Goodreads giveaway. And I'm so glad I won!

This is a women's health book, loaded with information about the fairer sex. It's in a Q&A format, with each question being answered in great detail. There are ten chapters total, nine are themed and the last one is of miscellaneous questions. Following this is the appendix, source citations, and resources for further reading. There are also "Them and Us" segments scattered throughout that more closely compare men and women.

Instantly, you can see that this book is incredibly well researched. The author backs up each answer with studies and the prevailing theories. But this doesn't mean the book is boring. It certainly doesn't read like a textbook. Barnes-Svarney make the information interesting and easy to understand. Also, she's funny. There are jokes and funny remarks throughout that make the book more enjoyable.

As for the questions themselves, they are very interesting. Some are things people often wonder about. Others, people just assume they know the answer already. But what we think we know by way of wives tales are dismissed, replaced by facts. Even if you know the general answer to a question already, as was the case for me with some, there is still more to learn because of the depth of the answers. Plus, it nice to be able to give sources when someone says "prove it" to you.

Overall, this book is well written and makes learning about health fun. It is both informative and insightful. I'd recommend it to any woman interested in learning more about how her mind and body works. I'd even recommend it to men who want to understand the opposite sex better.

As I'm sure, with most people reading this book, the title draws you in. Even if you may not wish to know the answer to that particular question, the book has so many more. All of the questions are very interesting, and the answers to some are quite surprising.

I definitely recommend this book to all women out there.

Let me be honest, the title of this book is what drew me in. Title aside, I liked this book and all its random tidbits of information. The book is in a Q&A format and the writer (who seems to have spent A LOT of time researching her material) goes in to detail in answering every question.

This book is a great read when you just have a few minutes, or if you just need something light and witty to read in your downtime. Even though I'm the type of person who researches everything any time I have a question, this book taught me a lot of things that I was totally unaware of - it even explained things that I remember wondering back when I was a teen (and totally forgot about in adulthood). This is definitely a book that every woman (teen and up) could enjoy reading.

Source: My copy of <i>Why Do Women Crave More Sex in the Summer?: 112 Questions That Women Keep Asking - and That Keep Everyone Else Guessing</i> was provided by Penguin in the form of an ARC through the Goodreads First Reads giveaways . Regardless of how I obtain material, I will always give an honest opinion of all the books that I read.
