Reviews

"A rollicking history certain to get your intellectual and physiologic juices flowing. Adrenaline-tinged tales and hot flashes of history-just what the doctor ordered." -- Lisa Sanders, Diagnosis columnist - New York Times Magazine
"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." -- Siddhartha Mukherjee
"Hormones may be ringmasters of the bodily circus, controlling everything from sex to metabolic function, but in this invigorating history they become stars of the show." -- Nature
"Congratulations to my friend @randihepstein on the publication of her book! I loved reading it and highly recommend it to anyone interested in public health or your own health!" -- Chelsea Clinton
"I'm hitting up the public library for two. The first is Randi Hutter Epstein's Aroused: The history of hormones and how they control just about everything (Norton), which I hope will answer the most banal of questions as I continue my reluctant march through midlife: What the hell is happening to me?" -- Jennie Erin Smith, Summer Books 2018 - Times Literary Supplement
"The field of endocrinology, as this compelling history shows, has manifested extremes of ingenuity and hubristic error." -- The New Yorker
"A well-written and informative book on the history of hormone research." -- The New York Times Book Review
"Here, a leading medical writer and professor at Yale University uncovers the true science of hormones and looks back into the basements, labs and back rooms where the study of endocrinology began." -- What to Read - Mail on Sunday
