The information in this book is presented factually, with helpful examples, and with humor. It's reassuring and encouraging without being intimidating or going over one's head. If I ever get the nerve up to drag my boyfriend to any BDSM clubs with me, maybe we'll start "playing" this way. We have some of the accoutrements... I plan to get more... one of these days, hopefully... The book really helped me stop feeling bad about wanting to be dominant and aggressive. If nothing else ever happens, that alone will be enough for me to recommend this book to other women who feel the same way.
Dossie Eaton and Catherine Liszt combine to make for a very powerful read--a necessity since being a Top IS powerful
. They take you by the hand and lead you through the ins and outs of being a Top. Their handling of the rights and responsibilities of Tops is superb and the book itself is laid out in an easy to understand and straightforward manner.
They also provide many useful hints and tricks that every good Top should know. Not the least of these is how to handle a scene gone wrong, an important skill since you WILL make mistakes.
Most of all though, they dispell the myths surrounding Tops and show us for the people we are-- warm, caring, careful, and concentual. If you're wanting to be a serious Top, then you need a serious book...THIS book..
The book covers a lot of topics important to Tops, including a Top Bill of Rights, How to get into 'Top space,' and what to do when a scene goes wrong. I think every Top would like to know what to do when that occasionally happens with a partner.
If you're a Top (and even if you're not), you should grab a copy of this book.
