Format: Paperback
I love this book and have given away oodles of copies.
Its advantages:
1)It is short.
2)It is rather comprehensive despite its shortness, and gives one terminology, some inkling of other people's practices, and introductions to outlandish behavior which just might intrigue you.
3)It has a mix of theory and story
4)Unlike many other publications which do the same, the fact that the Lesbian S/M manual assumes a female bottom does not offend me in the least.
5)It was my first S/M book and if it was good enough for me...
Not just for lesbians, this book has great info for everyone at all interested in kink.

This was the first SM "instructional" book I ever bought and even though this book is 12 years old as of this review, it still contains excellent information for anyone who wants to engage in consensual power exchange.
This book contains sections ranging from Emotional Safety to safe sex practices, what to do when a health problem arises, to the famous "Nine Degrees of Submission" by Diane Vera.
I even enjoyed the few "short stories" that can also be found here.

Format: Paperback
This book is a total must for anyone that is going to be playing even slightly into S&M. This book covers first aid better than the boy scout handbook, psychology better than Sigmund Freud, and sexual health better than the American Medical Association. About the only people that wouldn't need this book are people that have no interest in erotic power exchange. (And some studies estimate that 1 out of 3 people have at least played with the idea.)

Everyone should read everything Califia has written - she is great.
For those not quite committed to exploring yet, Sensuous Magic might be a better place to start as it seems more aimed towards borderline vanilla folks.
