Publisher's Summary

Have a healthy and happy polyamorous relationship and make your own rules!

During the long and eventful human history, one thing was a constant, up until the 20th century - polyamory or non-monogamy.

Ancient civilizations and middle Ages dynasties considered having more than one partner completely normal and acceptable. Monogamy is even very rare in the animal kingdom; so many scientists claim that being monogamous is not natural for humans.

When you think about the fact, that polyamory has been a part of human culture for millenniums, and monogamy only for decades, it turns out that monogamous relationships are the unconventional ones!

More and more couples decide to break free of the conservative conventions and try having healthy open marriages or relationships. But how can you have multiple sexual or romantic partners without issues such as jealousy, insecurity, and the society judging you?

This audiobook will answer that question, and show you that you can have happy, fulfilling relationships with multiple partners!

Here’s what the audiobook discusses:

  • The process of transition from monogamous to a polyamorous relationship
  • The difference between polyamory and infidelity
  • How to avoid destructive feelings of jealousy and possessiveness
  • The many reasons polyamory works, and how you can use it to save your marriage or relationship
  • How to communicate effectively with your partner, and free yourself from imposed and false moral values
  • Methods to protect your health, both physical and mental when having multiple partners
  • And so much more!

The important thing to remember is that polyamory is not immoral and bad. Society shapes our opinions and values, but not everyone can be happy living by those rules. Just because someone says it’s the right thing to do, doesn’t mean it’s the right thing for you. Monogamy is perfectly normal, but so is polyamory. 

Make your own rules, break the conservative mold and do whatever makes you happy! Life is too short for settling down and compromising!

Bad editing

This was a great book and helped me understand so much of myself. As for the book - great read!

The reading good and clear. However, it would skip and repeat the same sentences or words. It sounded as if I were being read out load in person.

Pronoun attention

overall it was enjoyable and insight. It did a good good explaining problens that people new to polyamore can relate to.

My biggest gripe is why does it lack attention on pronouns in a book on having multiple relationships? I understand it wasn't the focus but still.

A wonderful book

This is a good preliminary read to the mode in depth polyamory books out there.The author had a lot of practical examples.My only complaint would be that it's too short.But ik it was short before buying it si even that argument is void.

Kind of bizarre and all over the place

I have read and listened to *a lot* of polyamory books, and was looking for a new one. This book was just bizarre to listen to. It talks about polyamory being about relationships a little, but then there's this huge part at the beginning of the book that speaks at length bout how a man should care for his penis if he is going to be polyamorous. Sexual health and responsibility is important, but it shouldn't be the lead in when you're writing about polyamory. That made it sound just like every misinformed news article where they make polyamory all about the sex.
Overall the book was just all over the place and it was difficult to really have any sort of takeaway lesson or learn anything that I haven't heard before.

Chapters Are Out of Order

The chapters are out of order. It's a basic overview, mostly just gives definitions.

The specific tips are given in this audio book.

Relationships end because of jealous conflicts and people kill other people because they are jealous.

I learn many teachable thing from the audible.

Jealousy and anger are emotional reactions to believing scenarios in your mind that are not true.

Unnecessarily gendered

Unnecessarily gendered throughout, this book will estrange you if you aren't a sexist, straight, cis man (the authors view on pregnant poly woman are disgusting).
While most of the book is dedicated to justifying polyamory (if I've already picked up the book then you're preaching to the choir), the second half does contain some useful, if a bit awkward and repetitive, relationship advice.


Chapter 5 was out of sequence, appearing at the beginning.
Narrator didn't seem to know the subject matter, this showed in the words they chose to emphasize.
The narrator said the wrong words a dozen times before attempting the same line again. There is really no excuse for the lack of editing in this.

what an utterly crap book

The narrator didn't seem to have a clue how to record audio with duplicate recordings left in and pauses mid chapter so long I checked if I had pressed pause by mistake.
the author seems to have a huge affinity for the word dick, and the whole book seems to assume that only cis men are poly. seriously I don't get it since it was written by a woman! never returned a book so fast
