“Six of the Best” is a common enough title in the erotic chastisement genre, although having that title does not always mean that the text is related to the scholastic caning origin of the expression. This book does not even pretend to have six discrete stories, although one of the two that are identifiable does review a number of short 'case studies' relating to the subject of chastisement, principally in the area of 'domestic discipline'. As with many of the books in this genre that appeared in the early seventies it is heavily illustrated with monochrome photographs, although as is often the case they do not significantly relate to the text. One of the stories presented is so similar to one given in David Spencer's 'The World of the Spanker' that it suggests common authorship. Not one of the better items in the genre, but historically interesting nonetheless.
