Spicedwith real case studies, the book reveals pathologies no longer hidden inmedical journals or the bedrooms of people whose sex lives are undergoingdramatic change, for better and worse. Inthe style of popular neurology guru Oliver Sacks, Baird captures the humanity andcomplexity of patients, even when their neurological challenges have renderedthem permanently or temporarily unlikeable. Drawing from true stories, this revealing andsometimes heartbreaking book unfolds a better understanding of the linksbetween brain function and our sexual selves.
