How weird are you?,

This review is from: How To Think More About Sex (School of Life) (Kindle Edition)
de Botton's insight and wit make this a good read. Whilst he gives a list of sources/further reading at the end, the text doesn't provide references, making me think that much of what he expresses is personal insight. the point of the book seems to be to make people think that they are not particularly weird, on the basis that everyone else is probably weird too. To that end, the book does seem to be aimed at people a bit like do Botton himself, that is middle aged English men. It's a courageous effort, given the amount of embarrassment that seems endemic with the English when dealing with sexual topics.
