Becoming Boring

As I've said, this book may have been boring to me, but ask someone else, and they may say it's the best thing since sliced bread. I find myself attracted to books with a lot more humor within the pages, because (yes, I'm going to repeat myself here) sex is fun, and it should be fun to read about sex.
Well-made, easily read
Boring, but then again, that's my opinion

worth reading, but not useful review

Content / Style / Audience

The "help you feel comfortable with yourself" line in the product description is the reason I chose this book. How many women, no matter your age, are uncomfortable with their appearance after having a baby? I'm right there alongside you guys, or rather, still there, even after 6 months.

So anyway, I chose this book, thinking "I don't need to learn how to orgasm, but I do need help to feel comfortable with this new body."

While there are several topics in the book (ranging from exploring your genitals, touching for pleasure, and even real-life relationship issues), the actual reading of the book is quite boring. Or at least, it was for a 22-year-old desperate to get her old sex life back. This book may be a better fit for someone more mature in age. And yes, I do have a few sex books myself, one in particular by Tracy Cox that I love, so no, I'm no stranger to this genre of writing. Honestly, reading this book was like being in school all over again. It's too text-book-ish, in my eyes; sex is fun, and so it should be fun to read about it.

Now, I'm not knocking the book or saying it's garbage; it is a good read, just not for me.

The book is ordered perfectly; you can read from one chapter straight into the next without becoming confused. The quality of the book is great; it's no lightweight paperback, that's for sure. My copy still looks new (which is really no surprise. I'm known for taking especially good care of my books).

Personal comments

Though I feel the book is not for me at this moment in time, it may very well be later in life. I do not regret getting it, and I will store it on my bookshelf with all my other books in hopes that later on, I can fully appreciate it.
Follow-up commentary
I still think this is a well-written book, just not for me. I really hope that sometime in the near future, I can read this without yawning.

    Thank you for the review.

    What exactly did the book talk about? Listing the chapters and what they entailed is always nice in a book review. Even if just the highlights of what the book talked about would be helpful.

    The Mentor Program is a great program for new reviewers. You will learn to write really helpful reviews, mentored by a seasoned reviewer of high ranking.

    Good luck. Keep on writing and playing.
