"Anapol masters the difficult task of covering a wide territory of historical polyamory and diving into it to the depth it deserves, so as we read this book we constantly increase our understanding. I love her reviews of lovestyles in many cultures, and her in depth recounting of the stories of various relationships, the difficulties they encounter, and how they learn and grow and eventually triumph and go on to love some more. What I love the most is that the author always brings us back to the central point of our relationships: love."

"Deborah Anapol has picked up where her Love Without Limits left off and taken the discussion about polyamory to a whole new level. Polyamory in the 21st Century reflects Anapol's extensive experience with the subject, both as someone who has been a leader in the movement and as a therapist who has helped thousands of clients. Her honest, warm, spirited voice comes through in this book and the stories of real people are both fascinating and helpful to folks looking for concrete examples. Her chapter on jealousy-one of the thorniest issues in polyamory-is intelligent, insightful, and very practical, and one of the best things I've ever read on the subject."
—Tristan Taormino, author of Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships
"Polyamory in the 21st Century is a thoughtful, wide-ranging and well-balanced consideration of the current state of polyamory worldwide. Illustrating her points with vivid examples from real-life, Anapol succeeds in getting across the diversity of relationships and experiences covered under the umbrella of polyamory. Readers who are new to polyamory will find useful, open practical advice. The book also provides intriguing introductions to relevant research and theory in this area which will hopefully whet the appetite of readers to find out more."
