I have recently bought a few of these erotic photography books to get some ideas for photographing nudes. For whatever reason, I didn't realize this was such an old book, 1977 to be exact, and it shows. There are indeed some erotic photos to be had in this book, but many of the images are very dated. I would only recommend this book if you are into these types of late-1970's images, or if you like near-vintage erotica (i think they are counting the 1960's as vintage now :). Anyhow, the book itself is well-made and of good quality, but the images are not that erotic. Always check other people's reviews, if there are any, to get an idea what others think, and read the post carefully (in my case I didn't see the copyright date). Overall, a good book, just not great or a "must have."
