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!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed reading Jodi's book!! :-) She really understands how men think and what women want from men!! This book is beautifully packaged in a very simplistic and humorous manner...only the dimmest of Neanderthals wouldn't get it!

If men and women in a relationship are wondering why they're not getting any bedroom action...read Jodi's book to find out and go getcha some!

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.

Read this book and you'll get sex quicker than you gave it in college! ;)

While other reviewers have gushed about the brilliance of the content...and it is a brilliant collection of insights...I'm going to focus on why men can and should benefit from this book.

1. It's short. You know the difference between how a man tells a story (went to the game. my team won.) vs. how a woman tells the same story (well, today was the day we were supposed to see this game. I didn't have anything to wear and I was really worried about the heat and...)? You know what I'm saying. Jodi has managed to take the female perspective and wrap it up into little man size bites.

2. It's bullet pointed and listed. Yeah, this is related to number 1, but more in depth. Because this stuff is broken down for you, you get to learn and retain the mysteries of appealing to her emotional side with...wait for it...LOGIC.

3. It's ACTIONABLE. These are tips you can use, right away. You don't have to save up a ton of money or learn a whole bunch of new stuff. You pretty much just need to learn how to be the type of man that a woman wants to get with at bedtime. How? The book is like that one brand of pasta sauce - "it's in there".

The brilliance of this book is in the simple telling of the complicated tale...of getting more...wait for it...TAIL.

Format: Paperback
This is a guide or handbook for you guys on understanding how to keep the lady in your life happy, thus getting more sex. Because if your lady is happy, she's a lot more apt to want to please you, and this stands true for all aspects of your relationship, not just sex. You know the old expression, "happy wife, happy life", well that ain't no bull. And if your woman is unhappy, she can and probably will make sure you are just as miserable or more so.

It may seem strange that I'd read a guide for guys considering I'm female. So I'm going to be completely honest. Number one: I wanted to see if the author was full of crap. Number two: I really, really wanted to see how well my beloved hubby measured up. One thing I wasn't expecting when I began reading was just how much fun this little book would be. Jodi writes with a lot of natural humor while shooting straight from the hip and letting you guys know just how it is.

I loved the simplicity of the to do and not to do lists in the book. There's nothing extravagant, expensive or time consuming on them. Pretty much just simple little things that can either make your lady look at you like you're that shining knight on the white horse she always dreamed of or if you're doing too many of the do not do things, she could be wondering what on earth she was thinking to have saddled herself to you.

If you had asked my ex if we had a good relationship, he'd have said it was great even though any fool could have seen how miserable I was. And to be honest he was very good at doing most of the things on the to do list. Unfortunately he also did almost everything and then some on the do not do list. And no matter how many times I tried to discuss it with him, he didn't see a problem. And that's why he's my ex.

Format: Paperback
I read, "Sex: How to Get More of It" because I'm just the kind of girl who needs to know what some other woman is telling my man about how I think. As with her companion book, "Intimacy: How to Get More of It," "Sex" is full of very specific simple examples for a man to follow of how to make a woman's world safe enough to have sex with him... frequently... and including the "good stuff."

I especially loved the advice in number 10 in which she talks about making a physical connection with your partner, often but without any expectation that it will lead to sex. "If you can't rub on your woman for 15 minutes without jumping her, she'll eventually stop wanting you to give her the rubs. She'll see them as you just trying to get some ass, rather than you trying to make her feel better and she'll just get annoyed." SO TRUE!

Bottom line: If you weren't raised right by your parents, you might need to read one of these books. Remember the book, "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten?" These books are like that, but the end goal is a mutually beneficial sex life between you and your mate. They tell you to do nice things for your partner, compromise and set boundaries. (Sound familiar?)

If you want to change the character of your relationship, peruse one or both of these books. Your time will be well-spent.
