To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I gave the first book in the series 2 stars, when it deserved 1,5. I found volume 2 of the series slightly better, but not as much as to give it more than a 2.0, i.e. also 2 stars.
Main reason for this is, that the book has many of the same problems book 1 has, namely, that it is very short, too general (not specific enough) and contains too much common sense. Those issues haven’t changed compared to Vol. 1.
Nevertheless, it’s still a better read, as it is somewhat less iterative (thus, less boring). It is also slowly, but surely getting somewhere (contains more actual subject matter) and also incorporates more, as well as more useful tips (still not many though).
In summary, Volume 2 is not a complete waste of time and money, it’s an easy and more interesting read, than Vol. 1, which will give inexperienced newbies some more advice. But overall, it still fails to deliver. After reading book 1 (and now 2), although I have somewhat more of a glimps about BDSM now, I still feel like I don’t really have any more actual knowledge, than prior to reading both books. And this is kind of a letdown.
Nevertheless, since I bought all 3 books, I’ll proceed with reading Vol. 3 of the series.
