Polyamory for the Practical

Recommended Reading

If you have found the PolyFamilies site useful, you can help defray the costs of running it, at no real extra expense to yourself, by buying anything you'd intended to buy from Amazon.com through this site. It doesn't even have to be poly specific. If you're looking for anything and use the search box at the bottom of this page, it'll still help.

  • Relationships


    I love the approach of this book. While the book is not poly specific, it does take into account the idea of poly relationships.


    I haven't read The Ethical Slut , but according to writer Edward Martin III, it was the best book on relationships he had ever read. Here is a full review.


    Polyamory: The New Love Without Limits: Secrets of Sustainable Intimate Relationships is strongly recommended by many veterans of the poly lifestyle.

  • Science


    David Barash and Judith Lipton have a way of making the science of non-monogamy extremely entertaining. They have a sharp wit and love to play with the reader. This is great ammunition for those that try to tell you that polyamory is unnatural and that monogamy is the true nature of human biology.

  • Fiction


    You didn't honestly think I was going to recommend a bunch of poly books without recommending Stranger in a Strange Land , did you? Heinlein was an author that did turn a fair number of people on to polyamory, and this was the book that started it all for many -- including me. Do read it.

  • Movies


    I enjoyed Splendor , but The Beast had this comment after we saw it: "It's okay, but if you were a super hero, would you be all that moved by Superman? That's just our life." Don't take that too literally. I like to think we're a little more mature than the characters in this story.

  • Money


    This book is brilliant. Buy it, buy it, buy it. It explains the principles of aquiring wealth so simply and is an very easy read. Buy it. Did I mention I loved it?

  • Home Maintenence

    How to Fix Damn Near Everything is a good general book on the concepts fixing stuff. The Goddess of Giggle likes the principles.


    I've known people to love the FlyLady and I've known other people to find her annoying. I rather like her approach and recommend that you try her out if you've been struggling trying to keep a house in order.
