Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If you worry that the sex guide in your bedroom reads like an auto repair manual, this is the book for you. Dr. Laura Berman's The Book of Love approaches emotional and sexual intimacy as the human subject that it is, rather than as a checklist of erogenous zones to be memorized. Like her reader favorite Real Sex for Real Women, this tastefully illustrated book opens the door to the honest communication and mutual trust that count more than any mastery of innumerable tantric positions. A shared gift for lovers.

    Instructions for love

    The cover may look like a text book, but the inside is definitely not! Although the book is basic and has the mood of pop-psychology....it is a good book to inspire couples back to basics.
