The New York Times Book Review called Aroused a “well-written and informative book on the history of hormone research.” Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Gene: An Intimate History, called her book “a sweeping, glorious story of hormones, threaded through with sex, suffering, neurology, biology, medicine and self-discovery…Randi Hutter Epstein’s book manages to excite the imagination as well as calm it. The story is grippingly told, and Epstein manages to bring a whole system of science alive to her reading public.”
