I even can use this in part of my oncosexology work! Although not written for them, I am sure that many rehabilitation professionals could benefit as well. For sure I will recommend this book in my lectures.”

"At last a book to guide spinal injured people towards enjoying sex to the full! This tiny tome covers a wide range of information, from clear facts about spinal injury and physical sexual arousal, to changing attitudes and goals. There are frank personal accounts of Dr. Tepper’s both personal and professional life journeys. He demonstrates how anger can prevent spinal injured people moving forward towards self acceptance and sexual ecstasy, without focus on genitalia or physical perfection."
