Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is a much-needed idiot's guide to women.  It is honest, frank, and funny.  I wish more books on relationships were this straight-forward and witty.  Jodi Ambrose gives practical, real-world advice without sounding preachy or patronizing like some self-help authors.  I have already recommended this book to many men and women as I believe both genders will enjoy and learn a great deal from it." --Rachel Tighe, Ph.D., Chair, Department of Communication Studies, The University of Virginia's College at Wise.

"These two books should be required reading for every clueless man and woman who do not understand what can make their relationships "click". Sex: How to Get More of It and Intimacy: How to Get More of It are not books about blindly going along with what your partner thinks is right. Instead, Jodi Ambrose shows you simple ways to easily get in harmony with your loved one." --Joey Pinkney, Award-winning Book Reviewer and Author

"When it comes to starting a playful yet important conversation about sex and intimacy there's no need to go any further than books by Jodi Ambrose. Writing with both women and men in mind she covers all the bases of what it takes to develop the kind of relationship you want."--Cyrus Webb, host of Conversations LIVE/Editor-In-Chief of Conversations Magazine

"Jodi Ambrose reestablishes a connection between oft mystified partners by revealing emotional necessities integral to the understanding of the differing sexes. Remarkable in their accessibility, both books avoid jargon in favor of practical-living advice.  These books won't do the work for you, but they will give you the tools to get the job done yourself."--Philip Rosenberg, Host of Sex and Politics Radio

From the Author

Sex: How to Get More of It and Intimacy: How to Get More of It both take a no holds barred approach to relationships for all of the men and women out there. What can you do or not do to bring joy to your significant other? How can you "work it" so that both of you are happy and getting what you need? The titles may be racy, but I believe in getting straight to the point. Men typically want more sex. Women typically want more intimacy, security and love. These books unlock the mysteries on how to achieve all of that in, believe it or not, 20 easy steps. Enjoy!

More About the Author

Think of me as an ex-80s rocker chick, former high school teacher, and in your face author, all rolled into one. Yes, I donned Farrah Fawcett hair back when it was cool. I wore shoulder pads with pride and had a combination Baltimore/Virginia accent that HAD to go.

Having survived many wild experiences with a strong sense of self and a wickedly saucy sense of humor, I ended up with an axe to grind and a story to tell. Luckily, through all the craziness along the way, I took notes and it's those notes that helped me write Intimacy: How to Get More of It and Sex: How to Get More of It.

It always seemed to me that people made life so much more difficult than necessary. Pride, game-playing, abject stupidity, thoughtlessness...all of these things combine to turn good people into lousy mates. So, I paid attention. I tracked what types of behavior and language could produce a genuine smile or a rolled eye or a shed tear. What I noticed was that in most cases, people responded to stimuli in a similar way. There are always going to be exceptions, but if the rule holds true 8 out of 10 times, then I thought I could put a checkmark next to it.

For example (and this is so very obvious to women and yet somehow not so much to a lot of men), if a husband/boyfriend/lover checks out another girl while he is with his significant other, at least 8 out of 10 times the girl gets angry. She may not say anything, but I'd see her eye twitch uncontrollably, or a grimace fly briefly across her mouth and I'd know she was at a minimum annoyed, at a maximum livid. I'd immediately think several things:

1. JERK!
2. Poor girl.
3. Why would he do that? Is he mentally challenged?
4. JERK! Oh, I already said that one.
5. How does he not know that is bad behavior? Someone should tell him. I'm going to tell him.

Sex: How to Get More of It and Intimacy: How to Get More of It both take a no holds barred approach to relationships for all of the men and women out there. What can you do or not do to bring joy to your significant other? How can you "work it" so that both of you are happy and getting what you need? The titles may be blunt, but I believe in getting straight to the point. Men typically want more sex. Women typically want more intimacy, security and love. These books unlock the mysteries on how to achieve all of that in, believe it or not, 20 easy steps.

Now, as for writing the cookbook...who would have guessed?? I've spent the vast majority of my life trying to avoid cooking! Then I met my hubby Grant who loves nothing more than spending 3 hours in the kitchen concocting some amazing dish that makes my mouth water as soon as I smell it. I must admit, that concept is as foreign to me as enjoying a root canal, but he simply loves cooking up a delicious meal.

When I began contemplating writing a cookbook, it occurred to me that Grant and I couldn't be the only couple in the world that is made up of one cooking lover and one cooking hater (disliker? avoider?). And then, ah ha! That thought sparked an idea. How about if I write a cookbook that is half-written for people who enjoy spending time in the kitchen and half-written for people who wouldn't mind never entering it again. That's how Darn Good Eats: The Cookbook for Creative Chefs (hubby) and Reluctant Cooks (me) came into being. I figured this way, the cookbook would be perfect for anyone as it contains super easy recipes and fantastically complicated ones too. So whether you love to cook or hate it with a passion (but have to do it sometimes, even if it is against your will!) this cookbook has recipes for you!

Regardless of which books you get, I hope you enjoy them and that they make life a bit brighter, happier and fun. Hugs!

Jodi hit the nail on the head - what a hilarious book. I enjoyed reading this so much. She knows her stuff and any guy that reads this will be a hit in their woman's eyes (for sure).

Anyone looking to "Spice up" their love life should definately read this - you can pick up some good tips (and she even walks you through them), because I guess some guys need a HOW TO.. I must admit I am thinking of leaving this on the nightstand so that my hubby can remember that sometimes it's the little things you can do in a relationship that mean the most.

I can't wait to read whatever else she has in store for us.

MEN: You need to read this book to get a clue about women!

The book is well-organized and gets right to the point. It is formatted in bulleted lists so that even the busiest multi-tasking man can easily read and benefit from it.

The author tells the reader what goes through a woman's mind when a man does a particular thing---like go to a strip club. These insights into women's thoughts are right-on and priceless. The author tackles the subject with candid humor. I burst out laughing many times over the way she handles delicate issues that need to be addressed, but never are.

I look forward to more amazing books from this author.

This is a great book. It opened my eyes to one of life's mysteries - why is the toilet seat such a big issue. Now I know and I will put the toilet seat down.

Jodi outlines 20 ways to get more of what I want. She details them with an explanation and an easy read. None of them are expensive, so if you think that it is enough to buy her a diamond necklace, then know that there are 20 better ways.

Anyone with a girl friend or wife needs to read this if they want more sex, including in unconventional places.

I now need a way to tell her that I have a headache.

...then you've got to read this fabulous, insightful, funny book so you can tune in to what a women really wants. Turns out it's not that difficult to get what you want if you know the tricks, if you know how a women's mind works, if you know how a women's body works.

Ambrose tells it like it is in easy to follow steps. She's hilarious, truthful, and quite up front about 'do this-not that' when you're dating or reinventing a tired married sex life! BUY THIS BOOK! You might just get lucky!

Jodi has a way of writing that just really gets your attention. This handbook makes extremely valid points and does so in a funny way. Jodi talks like a real (awesome!) person, not like some authors who try to get too technical, and come off sounding like robots. Jodi talks from experience, gives great advice, and she's sassy and funny while she's doing it. (The chapter about the toilet seat literally made me laugh out loud, and it's something all women can agree on.) This handbook is direct and to the point, which is great, since so many men don't like reading anything that's too long! I recommend this book to both men and women. I wish all handbooks could be written this way! :)

This book hits the bullsye! Author Jodi Ambrose is a brilliant genius to write this book and make it to where men can understand how to get more of what they want in the first place. Her vernacular is right up there with how the male minds works and therefore reading this book should be a no-brainer for those who want to get more sex! Buy this book and begin to enjoy more sex!!!!
