Not the best...

All I can say is that 'The Best of American Erotica' has come along way since 2002. I'm a fan of the books in general, which is why I decided to purchase this, however didn't find it as erotic as the later versions. In fact, I found very little erotic in this edition.

I wouldn't recommend it.
