A Science Marvel
What made the experience of listening to The 7 Sexes the most enjoyable?
This book answered questions I never knew to ask. It offered powerful and concise delivery of a complex topic. The narration was flawless and I will keep this on my reference bookshelf forever.

Funny History and Real Science
What about Adam B. Crafter’s performance did you like?
He has a professorial voice that suits the topic.
Any additional comments?
I found the combination of history and science to be most interesting. The book isn't intended to be funny, but the oh-so-ridiculous theories and beliefs that apparently-smart people came up with about sexes, before science, was laughable. These weren't just possibilities that Aristotle (yes, that Aristotle) and others hypothesized about while hanging out drinking wine on the isles of Greece, but actual beliefs (presumed to be absolutely true) of how the body, sex, and life worked.I got some good chuckles from hearing about the "wise" and their absurd conclusions. Makes you wonder what we today are being so "wise" about in our day, but is absolutely absurd.
