Book and Website Recommendations

And here's a few specific books that I've oft heard recommended:
  • "Opening Up: a guide to creating and sustaining open relationships," by Tristan Taormino.
  • "The Ethical Slut: a practical guide to polyamory, open relationships and other adventures," by Dossie Easton and Janet Hardy.
  • "Sex at Dawn: how we mate, why we stray, and what it means for modern relationships," by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá.
  • "Polyamory: the new love without limits," by Deborah Anapol.
  • "The Polyamorists Next Door: inside multiple-partner relationships and families," by Elisabeth Sheff.
  • "Polyamory: roadmaps for the clueless and hopeful," by Anthony Ravenscroft.
  • "The Monogamy Myth: a personal handbook for recovering from affairs," by Peggy Vaughan.
  • "Open: love, sex, and life in an open marriage," by Jenny Block.
I've read "Opening Up," "The Ethical Slut," "Sex at Dawn," and "Love without Limits." I know for sure that those four books are worth reading, or at least that they were worth my while.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"

Default Complete book list, with descriptions

You ask a question, you get an answer. Here is my list of all 37 nonfiction books about polyamory published in English in a print edition. With descriptions:


My all-purpose recommendations there are flagged with green dots.

Not yet on the list, but set to officially publish September 2, is Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert's *More Than Two*, which will definitely get a green dot. (I edited it.)
