Format: Paperback
Contrary to what you may have heard or read, slave training is actually a new art -- when slavery was legal and socially supported, owners didn't waste tiem training slaves, other slaves did that. This book is really the philosophy part of a set of books written about erotica slavery, or what Miss Abernathy calls "slavehood" in today's so-called kinky community. The book has two parts: "The Training Program" and "D/S Relationships". The basic philosophy is that a training program contains basic standard components but also needs to reflect the individual needs of erotic owners and erotic slaves. Likewise relationships have certain common characteristic but are unique to the couple (or group) involved. It is one of the books I highly recommend.

Just as the title suggests, this book is a concise guide on techniques and setting in which to train a slave. Once you have read and practiced the techniques in books such as SM 101 and Screw the Roses, this book is a fantastic collection of ideas for you to set up and negotiate your own S&M relationship. Written in two parts, first the book deals with the various techniques of training your slave - interviews, journals, forms of address, postures, commands, types of services and ornamentation. The book then deals with D/S relationships - what to look for in slaves/Masters, the ethical treatment of slaves and the different types of slave arrangements.
Written in elegant, gracious style which is reminiscent of Emily Post, the tone is very consistent the content of the book, making it even more effective and fun to read. This book is an excellent "mood setter" for two people to read together. Overall, this book is a engaging read and excellent addition to your BDSM library.

I bought this book for entertainment, but I wasn't looking for comedy. The author's opinion of dominance is have someone arrange your socks and underwear in your dresser drawers the way you want them (this is actually in the book!!!)? I'm not sure whether this is trying to make a political statement that "housewives are really slaves" or if it expresses the fantasies of a female wishing she was a man in order to escape household chores (the book is largely written for women dominating other women, though the title doesen't tell you that). If you are a dominant heterosexual male the only thing you might get out of this book is a good laugh (actually its rather pathetic). I was hoping for something more along the lines of " The Story of O" but was sadly disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This little book contains some serious, thought-provoking material for people who want to train erotic slaves for household service. I've never read a book by someone who takes D/S so seriously and has given it this much thought and attention. I wish Miss Abernathy had been around years ago when I started topping. I could have saved myself a lot of wasted time and frustration.
The reader who was hoping for "Story of O" obviously doesn't have a clue about the real leather scene. I also wonder if he really read the book, which is resolutely pansexual. I don't know where he got the idea that it was for women only. (I'm a het male dom, for the record.)
Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book is in fact very well written and very concise. However, I was disappointed by it. I came to the book with questions about consensual slavery and the practice thereof that were not answered. Instead, I read a very short and very witty and warm overview of just about everything I already knew--maybe a little less, and I am not all that knowledgeable. Her workbook was more informative, and that is the one that I read first, which helped me form so many of my questions, but the format is not one which will directly answer the questions of an owner, since it is written mainly for the unowned slave.

I'm always looking for books that will enhance my knowledge of D/s and SM. This book is definitely one of them. It has an introduction, and then is divided into two parts: a training program and what to look for in a D/s relationship. I loved the practical and common sense advice given in this book, along with the attention that should be placed towartd proper protocol and etiquette.
Not everyone can or should take on a 24/7 relationship, but for those who are interested in pursuiing such a relationship or are already in one, this book will prove to be helpful.

It has been difficult to find this book in stock. It has been eluding this reader for months. Finally, I've had the good fortune to track it down and have one in my possession. This is a _must_ have volume for the connoisseur's library: practical advise, real world issues, expertly presented. Miss Abernathy's Concise Slave Training Manual addresses this special human endeavor with pragmatism delivered with an exemplary writing style. The BDSM resource guide in the back of the book is a valued utility in and of itself. I will reiterate: it was worth the wait!
