Ok, but lacked a spark for me. There were some interesting problems, though once or twice it threatened to veer into Cliff Arnall territory. It plainly wasn't like that in later chapters, but there it felt like the aim was to write about certain mathematical topics, like game theory or matching and the sex part was bolted on as an example. The writing is very approachable and I'd certainly read another book by her, so I'm puzzled why I don't feel it's a four or more. It's one of the mysteries of the heart.
