Reviews

Understandable & Interesting


(5 stars)

I'm not sure why the other reviewer hated it & then copied the intro. It's hard to rate books that aren't stories. I like to discover what people thought in the past & this tells you as it's info from the author but he sites many other works & scientists. He relates topics to animal behaviour & to various societies. Hearing about all the items females used for pleasure was a bit painful to hear but it's reality. If you're not interested in sexual psychology then you shouldn't listen to this. While many ideas are outdated it's still fascinating & easy for the average person to understand.

bad


(1.5 stars)

Didn't like the book, unfortunately! It's not a study , with reasoning and professional; psychology mentioned in title is irrelevant. Appreciate the reading on this difficult subject and this kind of book
