Format: Hardcover
I am considered reasonably intelligent and attractive. Yet I never have felt fully "in tune" with myself as a woman, sexually and sensually. This book really spoke to me. Gail Saltz, in her easy to understand and entertaining style, discusses how so many women feel about themselves sexually and sensually and how this can "ripple" into all aspects of their lives. We are brought up thinking of ourselves in a certain way sexually- - that can carry over into all aspects of our lives as adult women, no matter how "accomplished" we may look to the outside world. My fears, guilts and anxieties about myself as a sexual being have held me back in so many ways. Ms. Saltz has helped me tremendously to look inside myself and to become aware of the things that are keeping me from having the life I want. After reading this book, I have begun to think of myself and my "power" as a woman in so many new and exciting ways. Even if you THINK that you are OK with yourself sexually, you will be surprised at how much you will gain from this book. I highly recommend it for all women who want their to feel happier and more complete in their lives.

Format: Hardcover
Gail Saltz, MD, in her newest book, so saliently makes the point that women carry within themselves the source of life and the capabilities to live life to the fullest. Women who understand themselves sexually and sensually and who exude the power that comes from that understanding --live life more fully, no matter their occupations or their marital or parental status.

This type of woman has an aura of sensuality that stems from living life to the fullest. We've all seen the sort of woman who can walk into a room and pow! Everybody feels a pull toward her, a great gravitational tug. She has a presence. It doesn't have to emanate from her physical appearance. She might not be supermodel "beautiful" or have an hourglass figure. Her presence radiates from within. It comes not from how she looks but from how she is. She's confident. She's dynamic.

Gail Saltz deftly helps the reader understand how sex and an embracement of one's sexuality can lead to a better life. And Saltz knows so well to use humor, via a number of New Yorker cartoons that illustrate her points, to get through a subject that might make some readers a bit uneasy - sex is still something many are not completely comfortable discussing. A must read for women who want to move towards a better life by embracing their sensuality and sexuality.

Why did I buy this book? Pablum. Of course better sex can lead to a better life. . . just as a better car can lead to a smoother ride and more income can lead to a bigger house. I did not find the book to suggest anything new or even original.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Female Book Lover on April 15, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Please don't waste your money on this book. Although this book is written by a female psychiatrist and is touted to be "the thinking woman's guide to great sex", the information provided would be useless to any woman over the age of fifteen. Most of each chapter is devoted to a case history then followed by a very simplistic plan of "how to change your story". For example, the chapter titled, " When You Think That You are Emotionally Vulnerable" gives the advice to "seek therapy". Not very helpful, to say the least. The chapter,"When You Think You Are Physically Vulnerable" is about the rare problem of involuntary vaginal spasms that prevent intercourse. I can not imagine that any information given in this book would be helpful to the average woman.
