From the point of view of my incredibly limited (read: inexistent) knowledge about polyamory, this was a very interesting and informative read. It explains some of the histories and sociological mechanisms behind polyamory, and that the reason of it not being practiced up to basically, well, NOW, lies in the fact that throughout history, men were often allowed to have multiple partners (whether legally or not), and women almost never were. As that is now changing, as well as the understanding of ...more

4 stars. An interesting and informative look at polyamory's history as well as the circumstances surrounding modern polyamorous people (mainly those in Canada). Full review to come.

Everything anyone could possibly want to know about non-monogamous relationships.

The book Polyamorous by Jenny Yuen is a book written by a journalist who lives with her two male partners. She explores the many faces of the lifestyle along with how it can work for some and how it does not work with people who thought it would work. She goes over topics to give the relationship the best chance of succeeding .
The topic of Polyamory is not a topic that I have a lot of knowledge about and I picked the book because I was curious . The book is very informative and gives many examp

Polyamorous: Living and Loving More is an in depth exploration of polyamory and all the issues that can surround these relationships. Jenny Yuen makes this topic real through her honest discussion of real relationships and real people.

Polyamorous provides a very localised look at polyamory within Canada and often times provides very detailed social and historical context about the country. Despite being Australian
