Practically a new standard in polyamory books.

Fantastic for anyone to understand the diversity of modern relationship types, including monogamy, swinging, BDSM, fetish, D/s, LGBTQ, and the many kinds of polyamory. Checking expectations, understanding and respecting autonomy, and consent are covered in detail - something all of us could use a refresher on.

Pretty basic information about polyamory and open relationships. I was a little frustrated to find that I knew all the information already, and found myself getting annoyed and sidetracked by the some of the author's writing choices. But it's a book I would recommend to any couple (or more!) who is new to the lifestyle or even just curious. Good "Poly 101" book, not so good if you are on "Poly 201" already.
