Battles of the Sexes:

“Joe and Sarah have added a comprehensive look and guide to help us understand the importance of lasting love and the power of Vitamin C—our crucial life force that is Connection. By focusing on the romantic and helping unpack things that interfere with ongoing “love” relationships, Battles of the Sexes is a very useful guide to help us stay together and thrive as couples rather than just making it through.”
– John Ratey, Author of Go Wild and Spark

“We hear a lot about the ‘birds and the bees,’ but all too often, the knowledge of most people stops at the plumbing (at best), leaving out the most crucial and sexy part of the human body: between the ears. Battles of the Sexes does a wonderful job exploring this crucial part of human nature—our evolutionary inheritance with regard to sexual behavior. Read it and your SEX IQ will soar!”
– David P. Barash, Author of Out of Eden

“Dr. Joe Malone and Sarah Harris MS, RDN have compiled years of outstanding research to present an engaging text that captures the essence of human relationships and encourages the evolution of companionship through self-actualization. A must-read to improve the interactions with the world around us!”
– Amity Parker, RN, Tennessee Oncology

“Battles of the Sexes highlights important struggles that should be talked about and understood in a young adult’s life. It is truly enlightening and almost like a manual for young men and women to read and understand themselves more. As the world around us changes, so do our battles. It is vital to know how to equip yourself against the negative impacts of the 21st century. This book does just that and more.”
– Ashley Conway, Vanderbilt University Center for Research on Health Disparities

Battles of the Sexes takes the latest science of relationships and turns it into cogent advice on how to build happy and healthy long-term relationships. This useful and fun-to-read guide is great for anyone looking for a relationship or who wants to improve their current relationship.”
-Paul J. Zak, PhD, Author of The Moral Molecule and Trust Factor

“Having been coached by Dr. Joe many years ago in my late teens and early 20’s to prepare for a Stanford education and four years of collegiate football, I can absolutely attest to his ability to help prepare one’s self for the road ahead, especially in those formative years. And this was long before he began his journey of advanced education and research that led to Battles of the Sexes!

“This book helps us understand how our biochemistry has such a profound influence on our behavior and relationships, particularly in young adults. In a format that brings a complex subject to enjoyable layman’s terms, Dr. Joe explains how our human biological makeup creates sexual conflict and tension in our relationships. Understanding this dynamic between biology and behavior can promote a healthier society for generations to come by reducing destructive behaviors in both men and women. While the emphasis here may be young adults, all ages can benefit and learn from this book. I look forward to applying the knowledge obtained here to my own marriage!
– Steve Lemon, Vice President, Trading and Sales, Ross, Sinclaire & Associates

“In today’s environment, there might not be a hotter topic then sexual misconduct. Battles of the Sexes looks at the sexes in new and resourceful ways, and gives you a behind-the-scenes look at everything that we know, and things we thought we knew, to work as a guide to the background of human sexuality behavior.”
– Paul Wydra, MS, University Director of Development Initiatives

“Dr. Joe Malone draws some very powerful and fundamental points in Battles of the Sexes, insights that we should all take heed of in today’s world. As a marriage and family therapist, I know that education is paramount in the quest for more successful sexual and interpersonal relationships. And since we’re all biological beings, it would only stand to reason that fighting against our biological urges and predispositions can’t bode well for us. Battles of the Sexes is a much-needed resource that’s missing from the current narrative on human reproductive nature. Touching upon so many topics relevant to society today, such as poor nutrition, overabundance of stress, lack of sleep and our dependence on electronic communication devices, Dr. Joe Malone and Sarah Harris have started a conversation that’s not only crucial, but also required, in order for us to understand and repair our relationships with sex and with each other. This book will no doubt help to lead us all in our quest for lower sexual conflict and empowering, long-lasting relationships.”
– Dr. Isabell Springer, Marriage and Relationship Therapist, Founder of LovEd

“Finally, a book for college-aged men and women that explains the natural motives that drive relationship behavior differences between men and women that often seem “un-natural” to the opposite sex and at times even us. Battles of the Sexes has a laugh out loud effect because of it’s true scientific view of the hidden world just beneath the skin of men and women that controls the basics for the survival or our species; the complementary balance between sex-specific behaviors, sex drive, the value of relationships, and holistic health for the present and future generations.”
– Erin V.L. Smith, PhD Candidate, Founder of Imprinted Legacy

“Almost three decades ago, I met Joe Malone and quickly came to appreciate his work and expertise as a personal trainer. All these years later, I respect and appreciate even more his consistent commitment to improving the health and well-being of individuals, especially young people.”
– Carol Etherington, Past President Doctors without Borders, Associate Professor Emerita, Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, Vanderbilt Institute for Global Health

“Battles of the Sexes: Rasing Sexual IQ to Lower Sexual Conflict and Empower Lasting Love provides a unique way to examine relationships and how they relate to overall health. Backed with scientific evidence, it is a great resource for couples of any age to revamp relationships and individual well-being.”
– Lauren Davis, Operating Room Registered Nurse

“As a former student of Dr. Malone and a single male millennial I can attest that the guidance and knowledge that Dr. Malone presents is both sincere and practical. We all must face ourselves in the pursuit of love and happiness, however armed with the tools here in Battles of the Sexes, we all have a clear advantage in achieving self mastery and romantic success and longevity.”
– Austin Ellis, Music Artist, NBC’s The Voice, Season 6
