In How to Think More About Sex, de Botton argues that there is a dissonance between what we think is normal and what we experience in real life during sex. Sometimes we don’t feel what we think we’re supposed to be feeling. This book examines the implications of desire, lust, commitment, and love, claiming that these things are all a precarious balancing act. This smart, thought-provoking exploration offers readers insight into the sex that they are—or are not—having.

    " Interesting little book. Part of "The School of Life" series. Go to ... panmacmillan.com/theschooloflife "

    " De Botton is a philosopher, if I remember rightly, and I'm pleasantly surprised that his prose is so lively. It's witty, erudite, and about sex--what's not to like here? "

    " I did not enjoy this as much as some of his other books (Art of Travel; Joys and Sorrows of Work). A mix of more and less interesting ideas about how we do (and should) think about sex and how and why we experience attraction, commitment, loss of sex in a relationship and adultery. "

    " 3-stars because of his pleasant way of presenting ideas (as with all of his books that I've read [quite a few]). I can't say that any of his ideas here were both new AND significant (some were new and trivial, some were significant but not new - to me). My take-away from this book is pretty slim .. other than a few citations to pursue in his final 'conclusion' and 'homework' sections. Perhaps - on 2nd thought - a significant take-away (to me) is that problems with sex and with marriage are fairly universal ... so we shouldn't berate ourselves if things in that regard are not ideal - they never will or can be.
