Love by Vatsyayana encapsulates the thinking of a time-honoured thinker. Writing in India in the fourth century AD, the Hindu sage Vatsyayana composed the Kama Sutra (or 'Rules of Love'), and this masterwork of sexual etiquette has since become both notorious and admired. With a brief outline of his life and achievements, this entertaining selection of short extracts from Vatsyayana's Kama Sutra presents his wisdom in an easily digestible form that is ideal for today's reader. Love will inform, delight and stimulate. In the quest for understanding and mastery of love between man and woman, Vatsyayana is acknowledged as the supreme guide. 'a woman may act the part of a man when her lover is fatigued, to satisfy his curiosity, or her own desire for novelty...when a woman acts this way she shows all her love and desire. A man should gather from her actions of what disposition she is and in what way she likes to be enjoyed herself.'
