Not Really Ultimate at All

If you want to try reading it, go for it, but take the book with a grain of salt. Because of its old age, some of the facts are actually just wrong. The chapters are, in my opinion, organized a little oddly, and the writing can get boring at times too.
Some suggestions are okay.
Some of the information is downright wrong, odd chapter organization, writing is bland.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
This book took me so much longer than it should have to finish reading it. It just wasn't capturing my attention in the slightest. Some of the "facts" I had to go "WTF?" at, and the drugs chapter is still kinda just thrown in there oddly.

This book appears to have been written for the beginner to intermediate user, and I still don't feel like I learned anything while reading it.
Follow-up commentary
I haven't pulled this out since I initially read it, and honestly, it's kept me from reading the other "The Ultimate Guides to" because this one just seemed so uninformed. I haven't recommend this to anyone, and I honestly probably never will. It has some good information, yes, but some of the other bad information seems to overshadow that which is shame because the world could use some good books on anal sex for men.

    Wow, that drug chapter just sounds... wrong. Although I got a chuckle out of the thought of you running and hiding from the enema chapter! rofl. I think I would do the same though if I was a beginner and it was placed there.

    HAHA! Great review, funny though. I would have thought that it would have been better in 2002, but I suppose not. Funny, definitely funny.

    (cheesy, corny, televangelist voice) "I ALWAYS consider my drugs to be sacred..." How awful, I understand where he's coming from but dayam! It sounds like the "Everything you wanted to know about threesomes" book I reviewed a few months ago. The author actually suggested you smoke some weed to "get comfortable" before deciding to have sex with a total stranger. Cause it's always better to make decisions like that when you are stoned or drunk!
    BAH! At least we know better...Great review, thanks!

    This entire book was just kinda...odd. I'm pretty disappointed. I had high hopes.

    They really should update that book because I bet it could be really useful.

    I'm kind of confused about the usefulness of an F/F anal diagram in a guide for MEN, but as you said, there are plenty of other things to be confused about. Great review!
