“The guy who wrote The Game and lived The Game searches for love and learns that it’s way, way harder. And funnier.” (Joel Stein, Time magazine)
“A brutally honest and emotionally exhaustive account of his search for sexual freedom...Yes, there are orgies and swinger parties, but there are also far more intense discussions about the meaning of intimacy and the underlying causes of sexual behavior.” (Booklist)
“[Strauss] charms us with confessions of his screwed-up childhood and the many idiotic beliefs and mistakes that have plagued him, then upsells us on the notion that we can be masters of the universe-and he can teach us how. Color me seduced.” (Laura Miller, Slate)
“The Truth is fantastic...In the course of exorcising his pickup artist demons, Strauss learns and exposes the barriers to intimacy that so many of us are carrying around. If you’ve struggled with monogamy, or loved someone who has, this book is revelatory.” (Chicago Tribune)
“The epiphanies revealed are simultaneously incredibly obvious and richly profound... I want you to read this book. I want your partners to read this book. More than that, I want you to think critically about what it says about you and the world around you and your romantic relationships.” (Grantland)

Too honest for some maybe but a serious look at honesty and the important role it plays in relationships. Not just honesty with your partner but being honey with yourself.
Often unwittingly narcissistic this book shines a light on the dark place most men fear to admit,to themselves let alone women, exist.
Fun, done with great humour, and self deprecation this book is a hard to put down enjoyable ride through some of life's more uncomfortable issues.
I feel sorry for the childhood he went through, his Mother sounds like a real head case, like many mothers are. Thank God there are therapists out there like Lorainne in Neil's book that do actually care about their patients to actually get through to them and help them heal.
Neil has compiled his lifetimes worth of experiences into this book and explored the dynamics of different types of relationships deeper than anyone else, survived to tell it, and came out a better man.
Excruciatingly HONEST, and INFORMATIVE. An eye opener, and an introspective look at Neil, himself, which pushes the reader to have a good, honest look at themselves and their behaviour within relationships - both ROMANTIC and PLATONIC.
A Self-Help book to rule all Self-Help books.
BUT, this isn't about eating dirt. It's about a compelling topic that is a little shocking, but a necessary read regardless. If you are on the fence about purchasing this book, buy it now! You won't be able to put it down.

Great book. Found myself laughing again and again. Then again, also found myself highlighting a section, and reading it over and over. I learned a lot. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Etienne Juneau
Not really what is expected compared to The Game. Focuses a lot on his fight through rehab. Really slow. Never finished reading it.Published 4 months ago by wordsrcool
An entertaining and honest look at sexuality and relationships. I enjoyed this book immensely as I did The Game and The Rules of the Game by the same author.Published 6 months ago by I. H.
