About the Author
Cunning Minx is the sultry-voiced producer and host of the Polyamory Weekly podcast, now with over 400 episodes in production. The free weekly podcast shares tales from the front of responsible non-monogamy from a pansexual, kink-friendly point of view. A kinky boobiesexual, Minx founded the show in 2005 as a resource for the poly and poly-curious to form community, share experiences and help guide each other on their journeys of poly and kinky exploration. The podcast is the longest-running polyamory podcast and winner of the 2007 Erotic Award for Best Podcast as well as receiving accolades from ErosZine, Fleshbot and the Chicago Sun-Times. Minx has given dozens of lectures on polyamory, BDSM and social media activism at poly, kinky and science fiction confer-ences around the United States. She lives in Seattle with one decidedly grumpy old cat and enjoys salsa dancing and ass-boxing in her extremely limited free time.

The Eight Things/Tips include such things as the "right" way to do polyamory; Owning Your Own Sh*t; Guidelines, Rules, & Check-Ins, about NRE (New Relationship Energy), why Change is Good, and much more. Most of the tips apply to ANY kind of relationship:
"Whether you identify as polyamorous or monogamous, a top or a bottom, a dominant or a submissive, relationships don't work unless you know, understand and love yourself first. If you aren't already capable of knowing who you are, what your emotional baggage is and how to love and accept yourself, it's unlikely that your relationships of any kind will be healthy, happy and free of drama."
This is something that seems basic and self-evident, but sometimes the things that are the most "goes without saying" are the things that truly need to be repeated. The list of related books, site, and boilerplate guide to writing your own "user manual" are all excellent. So there's much goodness packed into a surprising short number of pages.
The only complaint is that this was obviously written to a a digital book and they didn't even take the time to remove the underlines from URL links in the text. I tried tapping anthem in the paper, but it didn't do any good. But other than being constantly reminded that I was reading a paper version instead of (the assumably cooler) digital version, I really enjoyed the book.
This book is a simple set of guidelines that anyone can follow. It's a quick read. It's well-presented like a text book. She cuts to the chase. There is no point in reinventing the wheel by going over all the types of poly dynamics when there are quality books out there which already address this; Minx kindly devotes a chapter to those the resources.
I found myself using Kindle's highlight feature a lot. I could've highlighted every paragraph of this book.
