Description

Are you in charge of your love life?
If you think so, you're wrong -- hormones control our sex drives and direct our love lives. In The Alchemy of Love and Lust, Dr. Theresa Crenshaw, a renowned sex therapist and researcher, unmasks the hidden agendas of our hormones as we progress through different sexual stages -- from adolescence through old age.
Along with well-known hormones, Dr. Crenshaw introduces lesser known but potent influences that make up our "sex soup." The effects of these chemicals working together and individually offer insight into some compelling issues:
  • Do people become addicted to one another through scent and touch?
  • Can we determine our romantic destinies by altering our hormonal profiles?

Romantics needn't worry that science will eliminate the mystery of attraction. To the contrary, this program helps us discover romance, rekindle it, and keep it alive. Filled with often surprising information, The Alchemy of Love and Lust explains the effects of our sex hormones and gives us specific, practical suggestions on how to monitor them.

    Interesting look at the effect hormones have on our lives and behaviors. I am not 100% convinced by the arguments, but it's a fascinting perspective, and has lots of information (albeit 10+ years old now, in 2009). I will be particularly interested in reading more recent data about menopausal hormone replacement.

    Where do I begin with this one? The educational nature of this book was good. I learned about hormones and their roles in society. It was certainly interesting. This book was all together horrible in every other respect. It was terribly sexist. I understand that it was written by a woman but it pretty much called all men monsters. I get that there were some valid points in there, and I’m not saying the book contained incorrect information. However, it could have acknowledged that women have flaws as well.
