9780465003075: Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Couple Who Taught America How to Love

In Masters of Sex, critically acclaimed biographer Thomas Maier offers an unprecedented look at William Masters and Virginia Johnson, their pioneering studies of intimacy, and the sexual revolution they inspired. Masters and Johnson began their secret studies in a small Midwest laboratory, and soon became the nation's top experts on sex. Over the course of more than forty years, they analyzed and explained the secrets of orgasm, emotional fulfillment, and sexual dysfunction. But they divorced after twenty years amid a clash of success, betrayal, and jealousies.

Weaving interviews with the notoriously private William Masters and the ambitious Virginia Johnson, Maier offers a titillating portrait of the legendary couple. Entertaining, revealing, and beautifully told, this groundbreaking book sheds light on the eternal mysteries of desire and intimacy, and their complicated roles in the American psyche.

From AudioFile:

Dorie Barton provides listeners with great direction and emphasis as she recounts the lives of the twentieth century's most well-known sex pioneers. Maier crafts an honest and intricate account of William Masters and Virgina Johnson, revealing how their personal relationships (including with each other) came to play a role in their professional lives as well. Barton complements Maier's writing style, taking on two distinct voices to represent the different viewpoints and lives of Masters and Johnson. Some elements that Maier includes may initially seem superfluous, but in the end, they prove essential for understanding these two iconic scientists. L.E. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
