"This volume covers a broad scope of material, reflecting the disparate range of conditions falling under the DSM rubric of "sexual and gender identity disorders. This handbook would be a welcome addition to the reference library of anyone interested in the often understudied and still not completely understood categories known as sexual and gender identity disorders." (Psychiatric Services; March 2009)
"…covers a wide range of sexual disorders and includes a number of theoretical orientations. No other book on this topic has taken this approach. Overall, this book is a valuable resource." (PsycCRITIQUES; February 25th, 2009)
"Divided into three major topic segments, this comprehensive guide is—to date—the only book to cover male and female sexual dysfunction, identity, and behavioral issues within a single volume. Thirty-four internationally dispersed field specialists have authored its 20 essay-style chapters, which include case studies, data tables, and annotated illustrations. Chapters examine the physiological, psychological, developmental, and interpersonal causes of sexual dysfunction and present treatment plans. Editors Rowland (Annual Review of Sex Research, 2005) and Inocrocci (Intimacy with Impotence) approach provocative issues with insightful diagnostics and therapeutic rationales. Recommended for medical and psychiatric collections." (Library Journal, June 2008)
