I love this book.
Here is why: Cooper’s essays here are real, raw, honest and authentic. His voice is clearly his own. As you read through the sections essay by essay, you can see his personal growth plainly. This is not a memoir crafted as a vanity project, existing to simply boost the ego or make him look good. Some of his words as he is entering the swinging/non-monogamous world make me side-eye him. There were a couple of times that I straight up rolled my eyes. As you dive deeper into the book, those misconceptions – the know-it-all attitude that leaks through fades away to expressing vulnerability. Fears as the waters get deeper are revealed. His personal growth is plain to see – most importantly when he takes the brave step of exploring and then revealing his bisexuality. His journey is an inspiration, and I honestly believe that anyone who has ever thought about exploring non-monogamy should read this book.
