Praise for What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire…
“Daniel Bergner has written a keenly intelligent book about a subject that often exceeds our intelligence: What Do Women Want?”
“At last, we have a new perspective on the wilds of female desire, in rousing tableaux, as women, men, sexologists, bonobos, erotic gurus, and many others provide frank, vivid answers to the question that has haunted [us] for far too long: What do women want? The answer will fascinate all.”
-Diane Ackerman, author of A Natural History of Love
