Read full description of the books:
Philosophers, theologians, artists, and boy bands have waxed poetic for centuries about the nature of love. But what does the brain have to say about the way we carry our hearts? In the wake of a divorce, science writer and single mother Kayt Sukel made herself a guinea pig in the labs of some unusual love experts to find out. This Is Your Brain on Sex is her lively and hilarious examination of the big questions about love and sex, previously published in hardcover as Dirty Minds.
Each chapter of this edgy romp through the romantic brain looks at a different aspect of love above the belt. What in your brain makes you love someone—or simply lust after them? Why do good girls like bad boys? Is monogamy practical? How thin is that line between love and hate? After listening to this gimlet-eyed look at love, sex, and the brain, you'll never look at romance the same way again.

Read information about the authorA passionate traveler and science writer, Kayt Sukel has no problem tackling interesting (and often taboo) subjects spanning love, sex, neuroscience, travel, technology, and politics. Her work has appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, the New Scientist, USA Today, Pacific Standard, the Washington Post, ISLANDS, Parenting, the Bark, American Baby, National Geographic Traveler, and the AARP Bulletin. She is a partner at the award-winning family travel website Travel Savvy Mom, and is also a frequent contributor to the Dana Foundation’s many science publications. She has written stories about out-of-body experiences, fMRI orgasms, computer models of schizophrenia, the stigma of single motherhood and why one should travel to exotic lands with young children.
Her first book, DIRTY MINDS: HOW OUR BRAINS INFLUENCE LOVE, SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS (retitled as THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SEX: THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SEARCH FOR LOVE in paperback), is an irreverent and funny tome that takes on the age-old question, “What is love?” from a neurobiological perspective. Called “a fun and insightful read,” by Scientific American Mind and “a serious, informative and highly entertaining survey of the neurobiology of sexual attraction,” by the Washington Post, DIRTY MINDS/THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SEX offers a new take on that crazy little thing called love.
Her new book, THE ART OF RISK: THE NEW SCIENCE OF COURAGE, CAUTION & CHANCE, an investigation into the science of risk-taking, will be published in February 2016. Advance praise calls it "an engrossing look at a fascinating issue by one of the most fearless science writers in the business" and "a road map for understanding boldness."
Kayt lives outside Houston, Texas (and is surprised as you are about it), and frequently overshares on Twitter as @kaytsukel.
