Over the last week, this book earned the 5 stars I just gave it. Its fresh approach, meticulous research (all documented if you want to chase it down), and clear, reader-oriented organization delighted me.
Its biggest strength? My easy full-immersion participation, from wide page margins designed to encourage me to make notes to myself or my partner, to checklists and questionnaires to define and keep my insights, to a page of key bullet points at the end of each chapter.
Read Amazon's blurb - long, detailed and accurate. Once you have the book in hand, do what I'm doing: For the last week it's been sitting next to my place at the kitchen table. I've dived again and again into the places most relevant to my wife's life and mine - ours - harvesting more hands-on tools each time.
Here's a quote that's a bit out of the usual, at least for us, fun, and not exactly at the heart of this practical book, but it made me grin in an action-oriented kind of way, thinking about the next time we're apart: "If you're at a distance and wish to satisfy each other sexually, I suggest headphones to free up hands and spicy conversation. You might even consider Skyping. There are also haptic devices that can allow you to physically arouse each other by remote control. A list of products is on the book's website." We could do that!
The book's message? If you're not harvesting joy and fulfillment from your emotional and sexual life, it's within your power to change that.
I'm happy (and excited) this book is sitting right next to breakfast! I'm glad I found it.
