Testosterone is a remarkably potent influence in humans, differentiating males and females, and encouraging behaviours that help us compete for and attract mates. To accomplish our reproductive goals, the hormone affects the temperaments, interests and skills of boys, girls, men and women, the gendered structure of societies and the way we date, mate, think, parent, sexually harass and fight. Carole K. Hooven will show how testosterone influences our bodies, brains and behaviour. Social progress depends on scientific progress but downplaying the role of testosterone in our lives is entirely counterproductive. Understanding the true power of this hormone can illuminate many aspects our contemporary lives, including risky financial decisions, sexual harassment, pornography, patterns of divorce, transgender transitions, fatherhood, doping in athletics, sport participation and fandom. Testosterone is an explosive book that will challenge what we thought we knew about the power of this much-debated hormone. 'With all the talk of testosterone in science, sex, sports and increasingly politics, we all need an explanation of the state of the science and its implications. Carole Hooven, highly respected at Harvard, is the perfect writer to do this - lucid, informed and sophisticated about both the science and the sexual politics.'Steven Pinker, author of The Blank Slate 'A timely book that will generate controversy and provide much-needed clarity in a topic that has been hijacked by extreme positions.' Daniel Lieberman, Chair, Department of Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University
