The Ultimate Guide is...actually a really good guide

This book certainly lives up to its name and reputation. It is a great resource, and a fun and informative read. I recommended this for newcomers and old friends because of its accuracy and levity. If you want to know more about anal, this is the place.
A great collection of information about anal sex, with excellent presentation.
Some of the information can be found elsewhere for cheaper or free.

extremely useful review
I recently bought “The Ultimate Guide to Anal Sex for Women” because my partner and I are trying to get into anal sex, and the title drew me in. If you’re going to buy a book, you might as well get the best, I thought. In the end, this turned out to be a really good resource for information about anal sex. The book is long enough to give you all the information, but not so long that it bogs you down with heavy reading. There are around 130 pages of information in the book, with several more pages of references and such. The book is divided into 12 chapters, and the information is divided very well among them.

The first 3 chapters are all about background and preparation. The first chapter introduces anal sex and dispels all the myths that surround it. Chapters 2 and 3 give short anatomy lessons and tips on how to get set up for anal sex. The book makes clear distinctions between male and female anatomy, as well as differences in technique.

Chapters 4 and 5 gives a list of what products you should look for in preparation. There is an in depth explanation and illustrations of all types of toys, as well as enema equipment. It also goes over proper usage and care of each item.

Chapters 6 through 10 are all about the techniques of anal sex. It goes into great detail about masturbation, anal play, anal intercourse, fisting, and even S/M and gender play. Each of these is explained in its own chapter, and is done in great detail. Tristan Taormino leaves no stone unturned when it comes to the techniques. There are even illustrations of different sexual positions included in the intercourse chapter.

The last two chapters serve to cover any lasting issues and concerns. She goes into great detail about anal health and diseases, and lets you know what to look for. The last chapter is a short conclusion to the book, which ties everything up well, and adds the personal feelings of the author.

The book has a very good feel to it all throughout. The chapters are peppered with quotes, stories, and personal experiences. There are illustrations and even a few jokes. This gives the book a much livelier and more fun experience. This is not a boring old sex book that has been sitting on a shelf forever. All throughout the book, she keeps health and safety in mind and explains proper preventative measures.

I really have nothing bad to say about this book. Sure, you could find a lot of this information anywhere, but it is a good compendium of knowledge that cuts down on the searching and guesswork that comes with research. She presents great points during the book, such as the difference between men and women, the difference between anal sex and anal intercourse, and many other thought provoking ideas. Flatly put, this is a great collection of information, and the presentation puts it over the top. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about anal, or just wants to have a book as an authority to reference.
