On the Vision of Kimberly Johnson, Ann Werner, and Ralph Faust by C.C.Cole July 11, 2011

With the two reviews below, I’d like to acknowledge the vision of these authors by bringing to our attention sensitive topics communicated in a no-nonsense, simple, realistic fashion through anonymous interviews.  They have addressed first-time sexual encounters, the heartbreak of men, and have an upcoming book about body image, which I look forward to reading.  These books to me are not trying to tell some racy story; instead they tell it like it is.  On very personal subjects, sometimes that’s the best way to learn:  with straightforwardness and honesty.

I’ve posted before a video with Kimberley and her mother regarding “The Virgin Diaries” when they found another book with a similar title and format traditionally published in the U.K. As self-published Indie authors, I applaud their courage to face the controversy without letting it interfere with their passion of their work.

“The Virgin Diaries” is a realistic, unembellished book about first time sexual encounters.  The anonymous interviews give clarity to an otherwise difficult subject to capture in casual conversation.  Same gender first-time encounters are included.  With the appropriate concern about what their adolescent kids are exposed to, I highly suggest this simple, easy-to-read book for parents, so they can decide how to approach this delicate subject for their kids.  It makes sense by giving the opportunity for others gain insight into the importance of the first sexual encounter. Congratulations, Five Stars!

“Ain’t No Sunshine” is an enjoyable, honest look into not the minds of men, but their hearts.  The breakup of a romantic relationship of any kind is a memorable, and sometimes devastating experience that happens to most of us at one time or another.  This book removes the cloak of indifference often given to men, as they sometimes handle the stress of a breakup differently than women.  The anonymous interviews reveal that human hearts are fragile regardless of gender.  Congratulations, Five Stars!
