Metabolism, behavior, sleep, mood swings, the immune system, fighting, fleeing, puberty, and sex: these are just a few of the things our bodies control with hormones. Armed with a healthy dose of wit and curiosity, Randi Hutter Epstein takes us on a journey through the unusual history of these potent chemicals and their discovery, from the London laboratory where the concept of hormones was identified to a basement filled with jarred brains to a canine sex lab.

We meet leading scientists who made life-changing discoveries about the hormone imbalances that ail us, as well as charlatans who used those discoveries to peddle false remedies. Along the way, Epstein examines the functions of hormones such as leptin, oxytocin, estrogen, and testosterone, demystifying the science of endocrinology.

A fascinating exploration of the history and science of one of medicine's most important discoveries, Aroused reveals how hormones can both push us to the edge and reel us back.

there were anecdotes but could have been meatier

Such a subject is fraught with politics of organ donating, which I suppose is why the depiction of the subject matter felt a little light. And a bit preachy. But if you didn't already know that your body chemistry trumps your brain chemistry, here's a fine and well-researched account of it.

expected info, got propaganda.

my whole reason for getting this book was to learn more about my own hormone system. my disappointment is without limit. the performance is the single redeeming part of this awful (in my opinion) hack job of a book.

you might enjoy it if you are a trans person/ women as it contains information pertaining to you. as a straight white dude? this book is dog shit and should be avoided. spend your money on Jordan Petersons stuff.
