by Bernie Zilbergeld with George Zilbergeld Crown House, 2005 Review by Dana Vigilante on May 9th 2006
A guide to reigniting the sexual
spark once you hit your 50's, this book is a well-written manual that covers a
broad range of sexual problems facing many baby-boomers these days. From
stress, to physical changes in men, to menopause in women, every chapter
relates to the most common problems couples face in the bedroom.
Written by two brothers (one of
whom passed away before this book went to press, the other, a professor at
Montclair State University), with lots of input from couples around the
country, this book is a must read for any couple who thinks they are the only
ones having trouble in the bedroom.
Although most of the topics covered
here are common and not all that out of the ordinary, they can prove to be
extremely stressful and put a great deal of unnecessary strain on a
relationship. However, once the reader realizes that these problems are indeed
common and not permanent, working towards resolving them becomes much easier
and less stressful.
The book addresses different ways
to not only resolve problems in the area of sex, but also guides the reader on
how to recognize and distinguish red flag problems from minor ones.
A great read for anyone who is
reaching the 50 mark.
