 Quotes from letters of appreciation:

    I think of you often as my life gets more wonderful each day.  My love for Bob (and attraction to him) continue to grow as well....I remain forever grateful to you for guiding me in the right direction.

     I feel fortunate I had such a "strong" woman as a therapist that could help me thru such murky, ever changing stages. I was slow, but at last it's coming together and it feels really good and I owe it to you! 

     I can't thank you enough for the help you've given me since we met.  I've never met a "doctor" I've like seeing as much as you.  I actually look forward to my appointment and leave feeling better each time.  ... Thank you for your wisdom. ...I never thought I'd come this far.

    I often think:  just how out-of-touch I was.  Amazing!!! You hung-in with me ... You were my STAR.  You stayed with me thru hell.  Again, I thank you so and those close to you who had to deal with all those CALLS - Much Appreciation.

    Thank you Lonnie Barbach.  I am 42 years old.  10 years ago I had my first orgasm with "For Yourself" beside me. ...You and your book made the difference!  It has been a great 10 years!  Thanks!

   I just had to write you to let you know how much your book "The Pause" has become a part of my life.  Sometimes I feel that if I didn't have that book, I'd be going crazy.  The valuable medical information that it contains has become a reference that I sometimes read over and over again.

    I have just finished reading your book Going the Distance and feel so excited by it that I just had to write and tell you.  It has helped me work successfully through so many situations in my very new marriage, and for that I say a HUGE thank you.

    I want to thank you, first of all, for the book Pleasures.  Before I read it, the erotic writing I had seen had been written almost exclusively by men.  My subjective experience and my view of what was erotic were so different from what they were describing that I concluded I was strange.  In Pleasures I found my experience described, as well as experiences that were not mine but were recognizable as ones I could imagine having.  This was very freeing for me.

    I am writing to thank you for writing The Pause, and to tell you how much the book means to me. ...Your book has truly improved the quality of my life.

    I had to write to thank you for your wonderful book, "The Pause".  ...I shall recommend your book(s) with enthusiasm to other women.  Many thanks for telling it like it is.

    What a delight it is to have the opportunity to contact you.  Over the years, I have read your books starting with For Yourself many years ago.  I have also seen and read many of your interviews and think you are a fabulous inspiration!!!

   First let me tell you how much I like The Pause.  Of all the books out on the topic I found it the most interesting and most importantly, the most useful.  I have recommended it to many clients and friends and hope you do well with it. As far as I'm concerned it was a gift to all of us.

    I am writing  to tell you how much I enjoyed your book, The Erotic Edge. I have to say some of the stories were out of this world

   Over the years I have been impressed with your growth as a therapist.  You have learned a lot from your various training  experience and clients and you have become -- wise is the only word I have for it. ...This is a serious compliment.  I'm not a flatterer.  Just wanted you to know I think you're the best.
