I found this book disappointing. There is a variety of men of all types (clean cut all-american, hairy hippy, tattoed and pierced) and colors, which is nice. The problem is, at least a third of these pictures are badly out of focus and/or badly (not artistically - badly) lit. Other pictures look like something you could snap off with a cell phone camera or the men simply just are not very interesting (I like a bit of personality.) In addition, many of the men don't actually get into the lotus position. The few nice pictures don't make up for the many poor or so-so ones, so it is too much money for the price.

I just perused this book at the store and came home to see whether there were cheaper versions available. I don't usually purchase art or photo books because of the expense, but I'm seriously considering this one. It's delightful. The faces on the guys all seem genuine and so subtly different from each other. If you've ever made love to a guy in this position, this book will touch affectionate memories. I found it artistically powerful to see so many men all in the same essential pose: it brought out the individuality of each man, since the subtleties of the pose and the faces of the men were what changed, and presented in an especially vulnerable and intimate position. I think the author succeeds at presenting many men as "blissful" and "boyish."
