(Please note - the publisher no longer exists.) It is a book of new, unusual, and revolutionary ideas about life, sickness and health. The author, a clinical psychologist in practice for many years, has given us a book of ideas which has taken him about twenty years to formulate. The book encompasses the whole body of the mores of Western Civilization. If the theories Dr. Bass presents prove to be correct, they may well revolutionize the practice of medicine.
The range of the subject matter treated and the manner in which it is presented are phenomenal and sensational. The reader is led as if through a maze and in the process finds himself in the midst of a sea of facts and issues that move him, excite and challenge him. Questions are raised as they have been raised by others before. But here we find the answers.
Also, a first in publishing history, Dr. Bass presents a guide to self-analysis.From the Back Cover:
As viewed by a middle-aged woman: To every person who has ever opened the covers of a book, his overriding quest, whether or not he may know it, is: Will this book give me what I want and what I need?
The reader who opens the covers of Sex From A Different Position will find - having been piqued by the title - that it is what he wants. The reader will be fascinated learning about his needs and how they came to be; lured into understandings of himself and his history; beckoned to a better life and healthier one; stimulated and inspired to new ideas and behavior to make his life a more fulfilling one.
As viewed by a young woman: In the tradition of the great thinkers of history - Copernicus, da Vinci, Newton, Darwin - Cyrus Bass gives us invaluable insight into the human condition. He imparts to us the wisdom and clearheaded vision of Sigmund Freud; but he doesn't stop there. Dr. Bass discusses in depth every area of human concern, from the simplest tension headache to the making or breaking of a political system, leaving no stone unturned, no principle exempt from dissection, examination and reevaluation.
One may not agree with everything Dr. Bass says. In fact, he encourages the reader to question and doubt everything as the first step on the road to self-knowledge.
