The chapters are briefer than a standard text—allowing for a lower cost to students and using less printed paper. Unlike other brief texts, THINK Human Sexuality includes 18 chapters of content—giving instructors the flexibility to choose what they want to cover without the worry that skipping several chapters will mean leaving out hundreds of pages of content.
THINK Human Sexuality provides currency and relevance through design, current examples, and high-interest readings. The readings have been chosen from a range of well respected journals and popular press publications. With the concise presentation of material in the chapters, instructors have the option of incorporating these readings and helping students connect to issues occurring outside of the classroom.

College English professor who loves classic literature, psychology, neurology and hates pop trash like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey.
I give this book five stars not because it is enthralling or laden with sparkling prose, but because it is a highly informative and unbiased textbook. It covers materials that should be addressed in the high school or college classroom in regard to sexuality (gender, religion, culture, history, orientation, etc.) in a direct and balanced manner. The chapters are concise but complete and include the widely known along with a lot of information that is enlightening even to the more educated. It would be good to see more such textbooks offered through Audible.
The most enjoyable part of this experience was the fact that I could listen to each chapter individually. I won't be writing individual chapter reviews as this review will encompass my feedback on the entire textbook.
There are a few textbooks out there specifically focused on General Psychology and General Physiology. This text focuses solely on Sexuality which I find unique. It is a foundational text so those of us with three degrees will find it introductory. I purchased the book as I was curious to see what were some recent publications and I was curious to read how inclusive texts are now since I completed my undergraduate degree in 2001. Much of the actual information I listened to was information that I was already familiar with through my work experience and/or other reading.
The author is a woman and the narrator is male. Some of the personal information written by the author thus was conveyed by a male which would have distracted the thinking process for a moment. This is unnecessary. The narrator should have been a female. The narrator also didn't sound like he was very interested in the subject matter. If I didn't really want to listen to the book, the narrator would have turned me off.
This was a textbook so there wasn't a real story to generate this kind of emotion.
Great introductory material, just change the narrator.
