      Easy to read and well detailed with sources to help, Facebook groups and related books. Some of it felt slightly dated, but that could just have been the age of the author.

      This was, quite surprisingly, rather good. I don't know why I was expecting a less-than-concise kind of book, but I was, and so reading this was quite a refreshing experience. It's not incredibly detailed nor informative, but honestly that's the best part of it. It's a good introduction to one of the lesser-known sexual identities and ends with a list of further reading material that is more informative.Also, as an ace myself, it was nice to read something that gets me as, again, asexuals aren't [...]

      This was a very good book to see, a book about embracing your asexual identity (or understanding the asexual identity of a friend or family member).This book is not complete, and it has shortcomings.

And this book recognizes those shortcomings, and instead focuses on building its strengths.There is a lot of time [...]

      This little book is written in a familiar style to set you at ease with a rather unfamiliar subject.

My only complaint was that it did not answer some of the very in depth questions that many readers might have, however, not being very familiar with the subject myself, it may be that those are questions best answered i [...]

      This books seems to be a good place to start when it comes to the topic of asexuality, but I feel like the best part about the book was actually the second part, where the self-love and acceptance begin. The first part was a bit outdated in my opinion and there were some words and concepts that are not really as widespread as they used to be because people found other ways of talking about certain things without being offensive.

      Great, informative, and quick read!Really identified with a lot of what was written here and feel really refreshed to read something written by an asexual who is clear about not having to sacrifice this part of ourselves to make a relationship work. Really liked it!
