I found this book to be quite entertaining and educational. However, as a male reader there was quite a bit of information that just made me squirm! This included the chapters on penile implants and the information about what Dr. Kinsey inserted into his penis. Roach's subtle humor added along the way was quite entertaining (especially the footnotes) but by the end of the book, I think I had maybe learned more than I wanted about sex research. If you are interested in more about Dr. Kinsey, I would recommend T.C. Boyle's "The Inner Circle," a fictionalized account of the famous Doctor and his research.
