This is a great book for those new to polyamory. She explains the concepts and different relationship types, both the great things and the stumbling blocks, but doesn't get too deep with it so it's not too overwhelming. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to explore a poly relationship. It's a great first or second book, but it doesn't go too far in depth.

This book breaks through the closed box of what we have been taught relationships are supposed to look like. Mim shows that we can design relationships around our individual core values and create different dynamics with different partners. I found the book was light hearted, easy to follow, gave great examples and shed light on the simplicity of what can seem complicated and overwhelming aspects of polyamory.

I really enjoyed this book. It gave me alot of helpful information regarding the different poly ..."couplings" I guess you could say. I would recommend this book to anyone just getting in to the Polyarmous lifestyle.

From my review at Polyamory in the News:

Mim Chapman is one of the liveliest presenters I've met at poly conferences. She's a former Alaskan fishing-boat captain, marine salvager, civil rights activist, schoolteacher, middle-school principal, the creator and star of the "Vagina-Penis Dialogues," a board member of Loving More and of Unitarian Universalists for Polyamory Awareness, lifelong observer of the poly world, and all-around character. If you saw the six-foot-tall vulva costume walking around Burning Man, that was her inside it.

"I really wrote this book to expand our vocabulary," she told the crowd at a book-signing dinner at the Poly Living conference in Seattle last October [2010]. "I've discovered there can be as much difference between two visions of poly -- two ways of doing it -- as there is between poly and mono. And if I didn't have a vocabulary to explain my vision of polyamory, there were probably other people in the same boat."

To fill this need, the book describes "five of the more common relationship formats that I've observed in the poly world," gives them cute names and initials, and devotes a chapter to each. They are:

P: Plural Poly Pairs. In this common form, dyads remain supreme. One type of Plural Poly Pair is the open marriage, in which two life-bonded people also have secondary pairings. But the category includes anyone who prefers to stick with dyads (regardless of how many), each its own entity and not having much to do with the others. "Think of the things that change for you when 'I' becomes 'me and thee,' " Chapman explained. "Yes, you lose some freedom. But you have that wealth of having another mind, another body, another outlook on the world.
