Reviews
In this slim and elegant volume, LeVay explores why we are sexual animals, what brain mechanisms produce sexual behavior and how they differ in men and women. He asks `What determines sexual orientation? Genes, events in the womb or nurture?' - a work of stunning scientific scholarship enhanced by gracious style and modesty.--Avodah K. Offit, Los Angeles Times--
