Default Here's one I've recently read.....

Here's one that I enjoyed reading:

The Polyamory Handbook A User's Guide by Peter J. Benson
http://www.amazon.com/Polyamory-Hand...1647312&sr=1-1

After being defined Poly, way back when till now, I found it insightful and interesting. Even the sections that had little to do with my relationship style were informative.

Just Me,
Tim

ETA: I'm finding this book very insightful and informative. From the standpoint of a person just coming to accept polyamory, it has definitely explained many things to me in a way that helped me understand better. I enjoy that it has a section on polyamorous parenting. My one complaint is that I wish it would go into more depth on many of the issues; some of the chapters felt rushed, or would have benefitted from relating more examples. While I think that it could certainly be used by non-Pagans, it is most relevant to Pagans and may not be comfortable for someone unfamiliar with Pagan beliefs. There are spells included at the end of most chapters, and there is an appendix at the end of the book with instructions for astrology and tarot layouts relating to polyamory.
Oh goodness, I knew Raven from like 20 years ago. I just looked at this thread. I never heard that s/he (not sure how s/he identifies these days) wrote a book! I'll have to check it out.

Edit: Raven is a guy now... good for him!

I'm Pagan and I've avoided the book because it has spells included and astrology layouts and so forth. That spells are included suggests that many of the suppositions underlying the text are geared to a particular subset of Pagans, a subset that doesn't include me.

I do actually have it on my list to buy and review at some point. I just don't expect much from it.

While not directly speaking of polyamory, Thomas Moore's "The Soul of Sex" touches on the benefits of having more than one partner. The book is an involved, positive discussion of sexual matters.

"The Great Activity"

-- a personal essay on practicing polyamory alongside Buddhism --
Non-Buddhists will generally find this insightful and interesting, as well.

Brought to you by the same friend of mine who made the Hot Bi Babe Flowchart ( http://www.obsidianfields.com/lj/hot...hart-large.gif )

This covers a lot of ground on a lot of different poly topics and he updates it often.
