Reviews

"I love this book! You will look at taking hormones in an entirely new way after reading This is Your Brain on Birth Control. A must read for men and women."
--Louann Brizendine M.D. author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain

"This is an urgently needed book that every woman should read. Most women are comfortable with the idea that, as some point in their lives, they'll be taking hormones. But few of us are aware that these same hormones also have an effect on our brains, and not always in a good way."
--Lisa Mosconi, PhD, Director of the Weill Cornell Women's Brain Initiative, and author of Brain Food "This is Your Brain on Birth Control validates what generations of women have suspected since the introduction of the pill--birth control is doing a whole lot more in our bodies than simply preventing pregnancy. In this brilliant and witty exploration of what we know (and don't know) about birth control, Hill has provided sound evidence that is eye-opening, riveting, and a must read for all women and the people who care about them."
--Dr. Jolene Brighten, NMD, author of Beyond the Pill "Evolutionary psychologist Sarah E. Hill's This Is Your Brain on Birth Control... explores the Pill's cascading effects on women's lives (it alters the body's response to stress and even whom you're attracted to)."
--ELLE, Reading List "An evolutionary social psychologist at Texas Christian University, Hill looks beyond birth control to examine the effects of the Pill on women's brains--and on society."
--People, "Books Worth Reading" "When Our Bodies, Ourselves debuted in 1970, it was deemed revolutionary for how it covered women's sexual and reproductive health. Fifty years later, Dr. Sarah E. Hill's This Is Your Brain on Birth Control feels just as important."
--BUST "So many of us have taken birth control for decades. But do you really know how it affects your body? This fascinating, well-researched read sheds light on all the ways the pill impacts not only women's own bodies, but society and the world around them, too."
--HelloGiggles, #2 on "The 13 best new books to read in October as you watch the seasons change" "Dr. Hill is a researcher in evolutionary psychology, and This Is Your Brain on Birth Control is an interrogation of the things you likely didn't hear about the pill during your appointment; namely, that the pill doesn't just regulate fertility, it influences everything a woman's hormones influence."
--InStyle
