it was ok
Read from May 05 to 11, 2010

It was a new edition, with revised content to update it, but as a friend mentioned, it wasn't really written for my generation or gender. Also, the writing is confusing. There was a sort of half-assed attempt at a dictionary format, so some sections start with just a noun phrase and some start with a full sentence. The inconsistency is confusing. Then, there are sentence that start with "For her, ..." but it isn't clear if they're talking about advice "for her" when she's doing something for him, or advice for him when he's doing something "for her." Obviously, a lot of the time, the context clarifies it, but it's not always easy to tell which was intended. It did have some interesting tidbits though, like a position for possibly avoiding neck pain during cunnilingus.

Zach I don't think this book was written for our generation or gender.
