Overview

The Technique of the Love Affair is a masterfully written dialogue between the wordly "Cypria" and the naïve and sentimental "Saccharissa" on how to conduct - with grace and restraint - successful love affairs.

Moore outlines a pragmatic approach to sexual pursuit and conquest, peppering her advice with incisive comments on the nature of men and women - which (current self-help books notwithstanding) has remained virtually unchanged after seventy years.

A sparkling period piece and a shrewd guidebook for those who consider pleasure a serious business. The Technique of the Love Affair is brimming with unassailable, timeless insight. Now, in this new premillenial edition, it is more than ever - a wise and witty manual on the art of love for the thinking woman.

    A MUST read

    An easy read, well-written and as true today as when it was written in the 20's. This book along with the 'Art of War for Lovers' will make you invincible in the game of love, and make no mistake, it IS a game, so you better learn the rules.
