Thanks to the complementary expertise of its authors, Human Sexuality, by Simon LeVay and Sharon M. Valente, is an exceptional preclinical primer that addresses nearly every aspect of sexuality from multiple theoretical, historical, and cultural perspectives. Valente holds a doctorate in counseling psychology and has taught human sexuality at the undergraduate level since the 1990s, while LeVay is a world-class neuroscientist who now devotes full time to writing mostly about sexual issues. Their compelling book is intended for use as a textbook for an undergraduate course in sexuality. However, since such a course is not required in the premedical curriculum, it would also be an outstanding supplement to medical school and residency courses in sexuality.
