Review quote

Doctors Mezzich and Hernandez have produced a comprehensive, progressive, and readable volume on a difficult and important topic. The pair headed a work group of international scholars, clinicians, and researchers to develop the Educational Program on Sexual Health. This book is the result of that collaboration. Thorough and weighty, it is neither dull nor deferential to conservative pressure. Recommended for larger academic and public libraries. * Library Journal * ...the book offers an excellent summary of what is known about sexual health worldwide. Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, and professionals. * CHOICE *
