Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?
"This book -- how do I put this without sounding hyperbolic? This book should be read by every woman on earth. ... It is a must-read for any person with even a remote erotic interest in the female gender." "Salon""

"Shatters many of our most cherished myths about desire." "The Atlantic""

"Fascinating... Threatens to disrupt all the modern stereotypes of female sexuality." "Slate""

"Totally engrossing." "New York""

"One of the summer's hottest books... adds both steam and explosives into the national conversation about what it means to be a woman today." "Vogue""

PRAISE FOR GOD OF THE RODEO
"Chilling and heartbreaking...A vivid, ambitious, and ferociously reported book that reads like a novel." "New York Times Book Review""

"Bergner neither sentimentalizes nor demonizes these men, neither judges nor approves; he just paints them as they are and in so doing delivers an astonishing lesson in sympathy." "Men's Journal""

PRAISE FOR IN THE LAND OF MAGIC SOLDIERS
"Beautifully written...Bergner describes what is magical and what is malign in Africa as well as anyone ever has...A great novelist would be hard pressed to invent such a cast of characters." "Los Angeles Times""

"Astonishing, unsettling...a remarkable book, full of piercing images and brilliantly observed details." "Chicago Tribune""

"A rare book indeed...Bergner's journey is arduous, dangerous, and brave-a journey in which author and reader are irrevocably changed." "Sunday Times of London""
