Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day in her private practice and through her regular contributions to O: The Oprah Magazine, best-selling author Gail Saltz helps women change the way they think about themselves so they can live their best lives. Now, in The Ripple Effect, she draws on that expertise to show women how to free themselves from their personal stories and develop the confidence to know and like who they are so they can live life more fully. According to Dr. Saltz, the key to being a self-assured, magnetic force in every aspect of life is to know one’s sexual self. How a woman sees herself sexually reflects how she thinks, feels, and behaves in almost every aspect of life; it creates a ripple effect that emanates outward in every direction, impacting family life, friendships, and work. The Ripple Effect examines the five negative thoughts and stories that typically define a mature woman’s sexual identity. Once she understands where her sexual identity comes from and how it affects her life—once she reunites her physical self with her mental self—a woman can then turn the ripple effect into a positive force for change. The vitality and power one acquires from a positive sexual identity then radiates outward to help a woman become the carefree, confident woman she wants to be.

Synopsis:

Finally. The thinking womans guide to great sex.
Bookshelves sag under the weight of guides and manuals that tell readers that their sex lives will be transformed if only they are limber enough to hoist leg A into position B. Many women have found that transformation underwhelming to say the least.
Sex is physical. But as best-selling author and television commentator Dr. Gail Saltz writes, "Seeing sex in only physical terms is an old-fashioned and ineffective approach that is based on a fundamental misunderstanding, like treating tuberculosis with breathing exercises, which we did before we knew that tuberculosis was caused by a bacterium. We know better now."
With a dose of good humor, Dr. Saltz explains how women can approach their sexuality from the inside out and create a ripple effect that will change how they think, feel, and behave in every aspect of life.
