Okay, you got me! I have to admit that the title of the book caught my attention, but once I got into it, I realized that this book is chock full of information on the body and body parts that I typically don’t give much thought to. I do now!
The book goes into good enough detail on how and why humans do what we do, and how we evolved to be that way. I found it to be very informative and it kept my attention throughout.
Guess what?... I did find out why the penis is shaped that way! And, that alone is worth the price of the book.
If you want a book that talks about and explains so many of the body functions that usually only bring about a blush to ones face, or have you speaking in code “down there”, “private parts” or “unmentionables”, then this book is for you.
The author, Jesse Bering, writes about everything under the sun from anal sex, bestiality, foot fetishes, gay/straight stuff, religion, death and dying… and so much more. Plus, you’ll even find out why the penis is shaped that way. (smile!)
Enjoy the book and get over some “hangups” that you might have about why people are the way that they are, and that when it comes down to it, there’s really nothing wrong with it and it’s nature playing its role the way that nature does.
I thought that this was one of the few books that I have read that actually taught me something in regards as to how to do "something good" with all of this social media stuff out there.
It's good to see that Twitter is and can be relevant. The author breaks it down, takes her time and helps us to make sense out of the whole Twitter Universe.

These are just a few of the 10 words that the author uses in describing not only historical China, but today’s modern China.
As a frequent visitor to China myself, I would say that the writer is spot on with just about everything that he’s telling us. China is a culture rich in tradition, history, and amazing people, who have gone through evolution of change in leadership, and now are surging ahead to become the global economic power in the world in a short time.
If you have an interest in China, this book will be perfect for you. It’s short, concise, and the author, Yu Hua, does a fantastic job of keeping us engaged throughout.
Enjoy reading about China, old and new, and this excellent book, China in 10 Words!
This was a pretty straightforward but that laid out an approach of goal setting, positive thinking, perseverance and working hard to achieve what you want in life.
The author, Lyn Kelley, is a well renowned motivational speaker and life coach herself. So she knows a thing or two about what she’s talking about.
I found this book to be a good refresher course for me, who is a self-starter and highly motivated individual anyway, but I also feel it will be a wonderful asset for anyone who wants to try to achieve more out of life.
Some of the various chapter headings include topics such as:
• Chapter 2: Why Do I Want It?
• Chapter 3: My Personal Vision – Creating A Personal Vision/Mission Statement
• Chapter 4: What Has Stopped Me in the past? – Self Sabotage & Fear
• Chapter 6: What Do I Need to Change in Order to Achieve It?
• Chapter 7: Creating My Action Plan
• Chapter 9: Who Has Done This before Me? – Mentors and Role Models
• Chapter 11: How Am I Doing? – Assessing Progress
• Chapter 12: I’m Confident I Can Do It – Accepting Success
It’s refreshing to be able to read a book that talks about “men’s sexual issues” that all of us guys have dealt with since adolescence.
Nowadays, there are more "scientific and nonscientific" information out there than ever before, plus men are feeling a lot more comfortable about their sexuality.
In this book, Giles the Sex Therapist, goes into some pretty good detail in regards to various acts of self pleasure, which includes masturbation (featuring techniques that I never imagined!), wet dreams, fantasies, fetishes and so much more.
Personally, I’m very comfortable with my sexuality (of course, I had to say that… Smile!), but I still found this a great reference book and everything that I needed and wanted to know about acts of self pleasure.
I’m glad that there are books out there like this in an interview format, that helps “men to be able to talk to men about men’s issues”, and hopefully that will help all of us men to fill a lot more comfortable about who we are and what we do when it comes to sexual pleasures.
I highly recommend this book to all my guy friends out there, and even to their sexual partners of all persuasions.
I found this book to be a fascinating look into the various dynamics to make up the fabric of America itself, the blending of the “melting pot” of various cultures, religions and peoples from all over the world.
The author takes somewhat of a paranoid perspective (and probably rightfully so since America was attacked on 9/11) in investigating and taking a close look at the infiltration of Islam throughout American culture.
Of course, we should a learned a long time ago that “one bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch more”, but there’s a natural tendency to fall into “groupthink” and develop an “us versus them” mentality.
I don’t believe this is good in the long run, but it is one of the knee-jerk reactions that people tend to fall into.
There’s no doubt we have enemies both abroad and now in the homeland, but we have to realize what we’re doing to ourselves if we begin to become isolationist, paint other groups with the same broad brush, profile and pre-judge people and situations just because it’s based out of fear.
I do agree with the author in this regard, and that we need to be on our guard, notice things that are “out of the ordinary” and be sure we report those unusual activities to the proper authorities.
This is a good book to read, and as long as you keep a level head and rationale about everything, it can be very helpful in all of us trying to figure out how to get along a little bit better.
This book had a lot of great helpful advice, not only for first-time dad, but for all dads to continue to keep in mind, great practices pertaining to raising their children.
It does have a nice “Christian” overtone (not too heavy though) which I appreciate. The book helps us to steer and guide our children through a lot of the cultural and societal challenges of today.
I also really appreciated the last chapter, Blink, in which the author really brings home the point of how fast these parenting years will go by. Here are some great additional chapters as well:
- Chapter 5: How to Survive a New Baby
- Chapter 6: Loving Your Wife
- Chapter 7: Loving Your Baby’s Mother
- Chapter 8: Boys and Girls
- Chapter 10: The Very Keys to Your Child’s Heart
- Chapter 11: Spiritual Information
There’s no guarantee that our children will turn out and grow up to be any particular way, but the ideal is to be as engaged, as involved as possible. Of course, it’s also very important to have a loving family environment in which to have a wonderful spouse that you both can be loving and supportive and the overall care of the children. The author has an excellent chapter on being a supportive spouse as well.
I highly recommend this book for parents, especially men, not just as a beginning, but as a refresher throughout the parenting years for your children.
I thought that this book took a hard look, too hard of a look at the path that the “environmental elites” are trying to take us on.
The author, Steven Milloy, uses a few “scare tactics” here and there, but for the most part, this book can serve as a real eye opener of what will happen to our world if we don’t take some reasonable measures of some sort. We don’t need to be extreme, but we do need to be pro-active and measured in approach.
Good book to read and keep in mind as the move into the future, especially once the emerging countries “come online”.
Well, an interesting look into the world of multiple personalities, with the main character personality being, Sybil.
Was it real? Was it a hoax? Fascinating, that’s for sure!
The author, takes us back to over the last 100 years of treatment that was common in the United States at the time. The discussion is about various methods and treatments, medications, sexual deviance and multiple personalities.
This whole “cottage” industry sprung up and really took hold in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s at a time when women were “discovering themselves, but at the same time, were being misdiagnosed in many cases of multiple personality disorders.
Of course, many books, movies and plays became part of Western cultural folklore with all of this going on.
I've seen movies, read books about the subject in various forms and whatnot, but it’s good to see that this book was well written and exposed the whole Sybil case.
I thought this was a fantastic collection of the top cases of the FBI. Most of them happened in my lifetime, so I actively followed them in as much detail as I could. This book gave me even greater detail and insight into some of the great cases of the FBI. It covered such high profile cases as the Unabomber, Patty Hearst, the Jonestown massacre and the Oklahoma City bombing.
For anyone out there who likes, intrigue, suspense and crime drams, this book is a must!!!
