It is what it claims to be: tips on how to be a good sex worker customer. I had expected a bit more anecdotal-driven explanations, but got more lists than anything else. Still gave this four stars because, although it wasn't what I wanted, it lived up to its advertisement.

This just wasn't that enlightening. I don't know what else it needed, but it was mostly like, be nice and shower.

If you're a beginner and wondering how to speak whore without offending the locals, this is a good practical start.

I'm pretty much the opposite of the intended audience for this book, but I still really enjoyed it (and found myself nodding in agreement quite a lot).
The essays are by a range of sex workers, from prostitutes to nude models, and they focus on things a consumer should know.
With such a range of writers, it's especially interesting to see what issues everyone in an adult trade faces (we all want basic respect, and appreciate it if you bathe).
Overall, this would be a good book for anyone curious
