We love reader reviews
Of course, we’re human, so we love the positive reviews best of all. We just received five stars and kind words from “Buzd” on Amazon.com:
It's Not About the Sex My Ass pulls back the curtain on the realities of modern polygamy and its practitioners in this engaging, entertaining and poignant revelation. Ms. Hanks shares deeply personal insights into the practice and her feelings as an insider; her willingness to be honest about her experiences and emotions makes It's Not About the Sex a wonderful and engaging book. Kudos to Ms. Hanks for her courage in sharing her extraordinary experience and to both her and Mr. Cuno for providing this window into the world of polygamists. I loved it!—Buzd

Praise from Down Under
and from parts North
Joanne just received this enthusiastic note from a reader—also named Joanne—from Down Under ...
Loved your book. Read it in 18 hours and that includes sleeping and entertaining my 10 year old who is on holidays. I have been interested in polygamy for years and often wondered how women think so little of themselves to come from a monogamous background and agree to live polygamy. Your book cleared it up a little for me ... Take care from South Australia xx
... and this one from Francis in Pennsylvania:
I just wanted to let you know I absolutely loved your book. You are such a riot!! Some lines were too much -- like the one, "At least I won't have to defend chiropractic again!" ... You are AWESOME!!!
