Dollars and Sex is certainly worth reading, but paradoxically, the knowledge it imparts is worth selectively abandoning for the good of one’s sanity.

Synopsis

Like Freakonomics, Dollars and Sex takes economics and converts it into a sexy science by applying the principles of supply and demand, and other market forces, to matters of love, courtship, sex, and marriage. As she does in her hugely popular blog, author Marina Adshade explores the marketplace for sex and love using research, economic analysis, and humor to reveal just how central the interplay of libido, gender, love, power, and economic forces is to the most important choices we make in our lives. Call it "Sexonomics."

Dollars and Sex is certainly worth reading, but paradoxically, the knowledge it imparts is worth selectively abandoning for the good of one’s sanity. Dwelling too heavily on what Adshade reveals could cause a reader to question the motivations of every paramour that comes calling, bouquet of flowers in hand.
