It's definitely the simplest beginning tantra practice guide I've yet seen, after reading avidly about tantra for several months. Good stuff!
I read the entire thing in one day (it's very easy to read) and I have to say that I was surprised by how little it actually focused on masturbation. I guess I was expecting a more in-depth guide. The basic premise is essentially making masturbation an "experience" involving self-massage, relaxation and affirmation, then bringing yourself close to orgasm, stopping, and letting the energy travel up into your heart; repeat.
And that's about all there is to it.
Besides the ONE chapter she devotes to masturbation--yes, one (1)--every other chapter is about how sexuality influences relationships, culture, our personal lives, our children, and so on. Masturbation is a part of almost every chapter, but it's really not the focus most of the time. A better title for this book would have been "Self-Love and Sexuality", because masturbation is really only part of the author's whole path to 'sexual health' as she sees it.
That aside, my main issue with this book is that it's annoyingly naive. While sex is certainly a spiritual experience--in fact, profoundly so--she essentially seems to think that most of our personal and interpersonal problems could be solved if we could 'just remove all these sexual inhibitions in our lives and culture'. Uhm, sexual repression is certainly a problem, but it's not THE problem. Sexuality is so outrageously glorified in this book to the point where it becomes her fix for almost every problem in her life and the lives of her readers, including food, heavy menstrual cramps, and dysfunctional relationships. She seems to suggest that if we could just love ourselves and open ourselves sexually these would go away.

I'm not really sure how to review this. Is it a must read? yes. Take everything as gospel? Definitely not. Grasp the essential teachings? You should.
It's clear that the author took a long time writing this book, and the levels of optimism throughout the writing show.
In short? Yes, buy it, because the content that is worth grasping is worth much more than the price. But question the validity of some opinions too.
4.5 stars for a more rewarding sex life
