Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book is a pleasure to read, owing to Levine's almost literary writing style. It provides a valuable humanistic addition to our attempts to understand the complexities of our own, and our patients', sexual lives.'
Archives of Sexual Behavior, 28:4 (1999)
Booknews
Drawing from two decades of listening to single and married people talk about their sexual concerns at the psychiatry department of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland Ohio, Levine presents a guide to fellow practitioners on such topics as psychological and sexual intimacy, helping men control ejaculation and women become orgasmic, homosexuality, and erotic feelings in therapy.
