About Taking Sexy Back

For women, sex has been hijacked. Today's sexual climate leaves little to no space for honoring the complexities of sex--sex as pleasure, sex as connection, sex as creative expression, and sex as healing. In Taking Sexy Back, relationship expert Alexandra Solomon shows women that they are more than just sexy objects of someone else's desire, and offers real tools to help women explore their own sexuality, communicate their needs, draw boundaries to be safe, and build the satisfying relationships they truly want.

"In these enlightening and powerful pages, Alexandra Solomon provides a clear path to thinking about our sexuality in the context of our psyches, our relationships, and our pleasure. There are countless books on relationships and countless books on sexuality, but never have I seen a book that asks us to examine our sexual lives in such a holistic, empowering, and eye-opening way. This is a rare and life-changing gift for women everywhere."

About Loving Bravely: Twenty Lessons of Self-Discovery to Help You Get the Love You Want

In order to attract a life partner, we must first become a good partner to ourselves. This book offers twenty invaluable lessons that will help readers explore and commit to their own emotional and psychological well-being so they'll be ready, resilient, confident, and completely whole when they encounter that special someone.

"We all want to be in love or fall in love. But as Alexandra H. Solomon so persuasively argues, most of us spend more time learning to drive than learning to love. Clear-eyed and compassionate, Solomon provides step-by-step guidance on how to gain the skills needed to make a relationship--even a good one--deeper, more satisfying, and more intimate. Loving Bravely should be required reading for anyone involved in an intimate relationship and compulsory for anyone yearning to have one. As Solomon asks, are you willing to invest in love?"
--Elsa Walsh, author of the best-selling Divided Lives, and former staff writer for The New Yorker and The Washington Post
