In this charming, boy-meets-girl-in-a-sex-study love story, a clueless scientist falls for his most incurable patient and learns that romance is far more than a simple solution to a chemical equation.

Dr. Steven J. Fisher is fascinated by the elusive nature of the female orgasm, passionately proclaiming it "the last great unexplored territory." But for all of his scientific candor about human sexuality in the lab, Dr. Fisher is really just a shy chemist who is a beginner in the ways of love. Trock, a major pharmaceutical company, has sponsored his Oxford research team to develop the first pill to cure Female Sexual Dysfunction, and Dr. Fisher is just weeks away from launching his miracle cure at their upcoming conference. When a beautiful and brilliant (and orgasmically challenged) Ph.D. student named Annie begins participating in his study, everything Dr. Fisher thinks he knows about women is turned on its head--and his research becomes more and more complicated with the addition of her perplexing data. Is it the pill making her feel this way, or is it love? What scientific phenomenon can explain the changes in his own feelings? With pressure mounting from the Trock, Annie's mystery must be solved by any means possible. Cleverly presented through excerpts from Steven's clinical study and Annie's blog entries--Chemistry for Beginners gets to the heart of what makes us all tick, showing that love is in fact, all about chemistry.

I liked this book. It was written as if it was a scientific research paper with funny footnotes and pictures.

All the main characters were likable, though they were sometimes just a little clueless.

Nice little book for fun. However you can learn a few things about biology and scientific methods along the way.
