A lot of poly people like that book, but I think just as many really hate it. Other popular books that get recommended quite a bit are Opening Up by Tristan Taormino and Polyamory in the 21st Century by Deborah Anapol.

As I wrote previously, there actually is no such thing as a specific polyamorous lifestyle that people adopt. Poly is something you incorporate into your own lifestyle and make work in whatever way you want it. There are countless kinds of lifestyles that poly people live.
