The Kama-Sutra: Erotic Figures in Indian Art by David MacRae
I loved this book because of the illustrations. In my area of competence, I can use illustrations to explain different positions. For centuries, the Kama-Sutra has been a wise sex therapist. [out of print, but available from third-party sellers]

The Prime Ministers by Yahuda Avner
I loved this book because part of it is my history and the book reminds me of my whole life in Israel. It is a big volume, but a balanced take on Israeli prime ministers.

Sigmund Freud and Art by Lynn Gamwell, Freud Museum
I loved this book because I have some copies of some of Freud’s pieces on my desk and I think of Freud every time I look at them. I say Freud was sexually illiterate and should have taken a course with me. He said that if a women can’t reach sexual satisfaction in intercourse then she is an ‘immature woman.’ We know better than that now. [out of print, but available from third-party sellers]
