From the Inside Flap
o his 24/7 live-in slave Patrick, and five years in service to Master Lynn, Jack Rinella is pre-eminently qualified to write the first book that fully describes the process of realizing and creating a master/slave relationship. Going well beyond the myth of fiction and the impracticality of cyber-advice, Becoming a Slave is a complete, authoritative, and well-documented book on the process of finding and submitting to the dominant of your hearts desire. Beginning with a description of terms and the characteristics to be found in a master and in a slave, the book continues with how one realizes and understands their own desire to submit and serve, proceeds to the process of advertising, searching, meeting, and interviewing prospective partners, and ends with a great deal of practical advice on submitting, serving, and satisfying a dominant in a healthy and practical way. While recognizing the unique characteristics of individuals relationships, Jack gives down-to-earth advice that will lead the reader from theory to preparation and practice and into the real relationship that they seek. Though written with the slave-to-be in mind, dominants, too, will find a wealth of information to guide them in their search and selection of their sought-for submissive. Becoming a Slave is based on Jacks intimate experience of seeking a slave, of having been a slave, and of being Patricks master for nearly ten years. Also included is the wisdom and practice of more than a dozen men and women active and experienced in mastery and slavery whom Jack interviewed for this book, thereby assuring guidance that fits all genders, orientations, and desires. A valuable addition to the library of both submissives and dominants, this book debunks the myths that make an M/s relationship seem impossible with a myriad of examples that illustrate exactly how and why M/s relationships can and do work. No topic is left untouched: personality traits, advertising, arranging meetings, negotiations, sadism, masochism, and sex, living in either a 24/7 or a part-time situation, finances, health issues, the meaning of service, surrender, authority, and commitment, employment, safer sex, and much more. Each chapter of the book is enhanced by heart-felt personal reflections on slavery written by slave Patrick and workbook activities that will prepare a submissive to seek and serve his or her master.

This is a book targeted for a specific audience: those folks interested in kink from bottom's perspective.
It tries to walk the line. Are you interested in getting laid, or finding a partner, or finding out if this headspace is right for you? The answers aren't here, but strategies for finding the answers are.
The organization of the book walks you through the basics: what are you looking for, what are you really trying to find out about yourself, how do you prepare yourself and your expectations for seeking out what you want or need? Jack's partner in writing is his slave, Patrick, who adds his own perspective to each chapter. Patrick's sections augment the chapter and occasionally reposition the chapter to make it more relevant to the bottom who is reading.
What do you get out of this book? Good advice. Things like, have recent experience and references; prepare yourself now, not when you meet a guy, for what you want to be doing; plug into community kink groups and be cautious of the "loner" who does not; do not assume that every kink relationship is the same as every other one, because there are as many kinds of relationships as couples. Working through the exercises at the end of each chapter is useful, to ask yourself (in the privacy of your journal or text editor) who you are, what you want, who you're looking for and who you're not.
If you work through the exercises and read Patrick's notes a couple of times while reading through the book, you'll have a richer experience and more useful lessons when you are done. Why? Because it slows you down and forces you to think through what you're reading. It sinks in more.
