Reviews

"With all the talk about testosterone in sex, sports, and politics, we need a good explanation of the science and its implications, and this one is outstanding."
--Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology at Harvard University and author of How the Mind Works and Enlightenment Now

"T is the story of the most famous, most misunderstood, and most maligned chemical in our bodies: testosterone. A fascinating, brave, and brilliant book--the best I've read on the topic."
--Steve Stewart-Williams, author of The Ape that Understood the Universe

"A superb and engaging book that delivers the unfiltered truth about testosterone, sex and sex differences, told with clarity and compassion. T conveys a deep understanding about the hidden power of testosterone in our lives, but also teaches us how scientific knowledge exposes harmful misconceptions and helps us become more humane."
--Daniel E. Lieberman, author of Exercised: How Something We Never Evolved to Do is Healthy and Rewarding
