Its a good book to ignite your enthusiasm to try this route.
As the book focuses on the benefits of being celibate.
I hoped for more scientific evidence.
I also hoped for more practical ways to help one achieve this.
Thanks.

I was very disappointed with this book! I'm a woman and this book was biased toward men. In the description the author says that this book is for men and women. That's totally incorrect. Most of the interviewees were men, so the majority of the book was about men's feelings about celibacy. There was one paragraph devoted to one woman interviewee and a small portion that said that a woman should monitor her menstrual cycle to see how she feels at different times of the month. If you're a woman, this book is not for you!

This is excellent.

The book is a survey about positive effects of observing celibacy. It's concise and to the point, outlining extra energy, mental clarity, IQ, brain, stamina which is observed when you say no to sex/masturbation/ejaculation. Minimal connection to spiritual/eastern style philosophies, which is perfect. No statistics, e.g. percent of responders etc and all that pseudo-science fluff. Just asking people about celibacy and (indirectly) motivating them to try harder.

Excellent pro-celibacy motivational material. More books like these are needed.

This book (which is very short) is probably best geared toward men. The description of the author having surveyed "a number of ordinary men and women" is misleading. There was one very short paragraph from one woman and a couple more paragraphs about the menstrual cycle of women. While I accept and appreciate that the words of the many men surveyed may not be views shared by the author, the sexist overtone of the book was bothersome, and I am generally not one to be too bothered by those things. I can absolutely see the value of this book for men on or considering starting on a path of celibacy. Though I will say that, even so, it is largely expressed in this book that celibacy should only be for a set period of time and not for a lifetime. Likely not for those choosing (or considering choosing) celibacy as an on-going spiritual practice.

Really gets boring
