I found this book to be quite insightful. I'm not sure what the people that gave it a 1-star review are thinking. One admitted that they didn't even read this book. The other obviously is confused and read the sample, and didn't buy the complete book.

I think there are a lot of misconceptions (as evidenced by one reviewer) about the Fifty Shades trilogy, which this book discusses. Do you find yourself perplexed at the popularity of this series among women? This books explains exactly why it appeals to women, and how to use that knowledge to improve our relationships, and our sex lives.

I found the analysis spot on. Great book.

    My inner-goddess is annoyed

    Having suffered through the GOD-AWFUL first book in the Twilight fan-fic turned novel Fifty-shades of grey, I found myself in the position of being extremely annoyed by Ana's idiocy and turned OFF by Christian's abusive controlling ways.....having read books with BOTH erotic, graphic, sometimes BDSM relationships, as well as an ACTUAL well written plot, I KNEW it wasn't because I was a prude....LKH anyone? But KNOWING ANYTHING about BDSM I also knew that a birgin would be OFF limits, and any suggestion that if one is into BDSM it equates to abuse as a child is insulting, nor is it the ONLY way to have sex or conduct their entire life around a SEXUAL preference.....it is PART of their SEX lives it does NOT engulf one's entire life...and to WANT someone to tell you when, what, where how to do EVERYTHING is not love, it is ownership, control, and disgusting.....women fought to stop being considered their husband's property, and now women are reading some woman's fantasy that turns a very young, inexperienced woman into nothing more than a sex toy for a creepy perv.....anyone who thinks this is a love story needs to redefine their definition of love...
