"Familiarity breeds contempt" as in marriage, so with this audiobook.
I am so disappointed. I am halfway through this audiobook and I have yet to see any actionable steps. I fell asleep between hours 4-5, and I doubt I will go back and listen to the material I missed unless I have nothing else on my virtual book shelf to occupy my attention.
The book is a painful recount of the stories of the psychologist's patients, and nearly every problem that could exist in the bedroom. The only thing it did do well was to give me the impression that I was certainly not alone in my boredom and dissatisfaction. I already knew that. I wanted to know what to do about it! That's why I bought the book.
I kept thinking it would get better if I kept going, but not yet, and not likely from what I can tell.
If you want to know how to make your marriage better and the sex more interesting, buy a different book, like a technique manual, or use the gentler steps in the Art of Seduction. Better yet try for French Women Don't Sleep Alone. Same content, but more entertaining, and better suggestions on how to fix the problem. Definitely don't waste your time or money on this one.
I haven't finished it yet, and it's been several months since I've had it. The books I'm into get completed in less than 2 weeks.
Love Sci Fi and Fantasy books since I was 8, starting reading A Princess of Mars series in Junior High School thanks to my Uncle Lester.
I found it really difficult to understand her and to listen to the author read this book. This is one of the few books I have never finished.
"nothing is fool proof to a talented fool"
I was hesitant to get the book because of her accent, but reading some other reviews convinced me to try, and boy am I glad. The content of the book is pure gold, the repetition is at a minimum and the lessons are as deep as they are practical. Her accent became enjoyable and re-enactments immersing. All in all this is one of the best books on the topic and her eloquence of expression puts a cherry on top.
Ps I'm pretty sure I've learned a word or two in the process ;)
This amazing treaties on human relationships, sex and sexuality explores often contemplated concepts that are difficult to reconcile. The book helped me acknowledge and better understand my own sexuality and wants. Esther Perel adds her wonderful voice to the subject which imparts a multicultural dimension. Listened twice!
This book could change the landscape of long term committed love, and ultimately effect the fabric of society. If lovers would experience the type of paradigm outlined in Perel's writings, it would make for far better happiness overall in homes, leading to more fulfilled individuals in society as a whole.
Eye-opening. It explains exactly what happens for committed couples in long term relationships. what I like about it is that it is not an instructional manual or a quick-fix guide. There is no formula. But there are enough case studies to cover most situations and suggest a way to improve yours.
