Review for "Q62" Written by Michael Makai.
Michael Makai Could Potentially Save Lives With This Book!
Right from the first page of the book I was hooked. The first paragraph was exactly what I was going through! I was about to give up on this lifestyle and I was tired of being taken for a ride with people that called themselves Dominants. The book seemed like it was talking directly to me. I had read Michael Makai's book titled "Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook" previously and he seems to explain things in such a way that make complete sense. I -needed- to get this book so that I could help myself choose the right Dominant. I feel the need to review this book because it has saved me a lot of grief and heartache.
This book is a perfect guide for trying to find the right Dominant for you. It has questions you can ask your potential Dominant and perhaps even the one you have right now. It shows you why these questions are important to your blossoming or future relationship and some that are even vital to your life as a submissive. The answers to these questions are also included and gives you things that you should watch out for.
This book opens up your eyes to a lot of yellow and red flag wanna-be Dominants. Some things are common sense, sure but if you are new to this lifestyle, sometimes one doesn't know any better and will trust too easily. It kind of works like a security blanket, by making you aware of your conversations with your potential Dominant. It also tells you what to watch out for, for your own protection.
I really enjoy how some questions are broken down into sub questions (no pun intended). He explains what each part of the question means and how to interpret them. He then gets you to ask in different ways and provides back up questions if the first answer is not complete to your satisfaction. It's almost like he knows what the potential Dominants answers are likely to be. He wants his readers to make the best decision possible for them based on the questions and answers.
I really love how Mr. Makai incorporates some of his real life experiences into this book. Some of the things he has experienced, he shares with us, and in turn, he makes sure that none of us have to go through what he went through. He has stories of his past experiences in his "Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook" also. His "Two Cents" on certain questions and answers, had me in a fit of hysterics in both books I have read thus far. He explains things in a way that makes sense and also cares about the safety of his readers.
This book, as well as Mr. Makai's first book exceeded my expectations, as always. It has literally made me fully aware of what to look for in a potential Dominant. With some in depth explanations on what bad signs look like and what good signs look like. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to any new submissive out there, even the ones that have been in the lifestyle for years. One can never learn too much about risk awareness.
I have recommended this book to a few people that are new in the Lifestyle and I am glad I have. This book has the potential to literally save lives.
