“I read Swoon in the hope that some of its subjects would even slightly resemble me. I loved the book anyway.”
- Andy Borowitz, comedian and New York Times best-selling author
“Betsy Prioleau’s witty and compelling book is a fresh take on the question of what women want. I wholly agree with her thesis that the true seducer is not the swaggering Don Juan of myth and melodrama, but the ordinary-looking man who likes, loves, and listens to women.”
- Molly Haskell, author of Frankly, My Dear: Gone with the Wind Revisted
“A fun, frothy complement to cultural historian Prioleau’s Seductress: Women Who Ravished the World (2003)… A merrily readable literary history/dating manual.”
- Kirkus Reviews
“Betsy Prioleau’s vivacious prose grabs the reader, as does her marvelous wit, her insight into sexual desire, and her extraordinary research. It’s a fascinating, very sexy read, especially her interviews with great lovers of today who detail why they’re so successful in their seduction of women.”
- Barbara Taylor Bradford, author of Letter from a Stranger
“Swoon is a revelatory―and revolutionary―work that radically expands our understanding of human desire and unveils the mysteries surrounding passionate love. Prioleau answers Freud’s vexed question: "What do women want?" It is also a profound cultural history of eros with evocative case studies of great seducers. The reader of this remarkable book will be happily seduced and enlightened.”
- Peter J. Buckley, MD, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
