Nineteenth-century Vienna was a wellspring of culture, high society, and decadence -- and home to Josephine Mutzenbacher. One of the most beautiful and sought after libertines of the age, she rose from the streets to become a celebrated courtesan. As a young woman, she learned the secrets of her profession. As mistress to wealthy, powerful men, she used her talents to transform herself from a slattern to the most wanted woman of the age. This candid, long-suppressed memoir is her story.

I like this book although it sometimes get a bit repetitive. It really dwells on the many affairs that she had with different man, but there is no more thought put into it than just the drive to have sex. Only a very narrow chapter did she reflect on the fact of her audacious adventures and wish this would had explored more on the impact on how she manage through society.
That said, this seems like a heroine action adventure which seems that every women has super power to just take advantage of the many men in her surrounds. However I do love the theme and the fact this is pretty old yet imaginative and creative.
