If you read the book 'And they were not ashamed' by Laura M. BrothersonAnd They Were Not Ashamed: Strengthening Marriage through Sexual Fulfillment - another LDS book on sexual relations, you will find views and advice that directly contradict that given in this book (eg on 'self touching' during intimacy and on oral sex). Of course, Laura's book is also a personal, subjective view but in my opinion (again personal) provides a much more frank and realistic insight into this important subject.
What's important when writing a book like this is that the authors state completely and regularly that what they are writing is their view. There are too many church members (in MY view, Lamb and Brinley included) who express their personal views and interpretation as though it is doctrine. I personally think it's unfortunate that Lamb and Brinley make a veiled reference to oral sex because this has clearly led to confusion. Whether or not the instruction in the letter they refer to is still applicable or not, the current church policy is that it is down to the couple to determine what is and isn't appropriate and leaders do not in any way dictate this.
In conclusion, don't let the extreme negatism pursuade you against reading this book if you really need help understanding yourself and the opposite sex. It was an excellent aid for me and my wife and I believe it encourages sex between couples much more than some critics would have you believe. Do remember, however, that this is NOT doctrine, and these are only the educated opinions of "professionals."
The authors have done such an excellent job of discussing a sensitive topic in an appropriate manner--with the gospel taking the forefront.
Since it had actual examples from real people and quotes from church leaders, I always felt that I was getting very good advice and information. Since intimacy is such a huge part of marriage, I recommend it to anyone who is getting married, or is already married. This book will definitely help.
