Reviews and Endorsements

In this highly original and truly gripping work, Janice Hiller creatively explores the interrelationship between human sexuality and neurobiology in a most unique manner. Covering everything from dopamine and serotonin to marriage and infidelity, the author helps us to understand the impact of sex upon the brain and vice versa. I hope that this book will be absorbed by all health care professionals, whether those who specialise in the mind or in the body.

The more I think about our fate, the more humbled I am about my knowledge of its mechanisms. We therapists use diverse inadequate paradigms to try to understand the mind. Now we can all welcome this lovely little book that reviews for us what neuroscience can and cannot add to our grasp of love and sex.

This compact book contains a wealth of information about the neurobiology of sexuality and intimacy over the life course. Scientifically rooted and clinically informed it takes on the challenge of integrating psychosocial and bio-behavioural factors that affect the emotional basis of sexual response. It should be on the bookshelf of all psychosexual therapists and others interested in understanding the psychogenesis of sexual behaviour.
