Product Description

Review

“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)

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. I've already recommended this book to some friends. Great read.

We all have inner demons growing up, this is the world's #1 PUA's journey to self-discovery, self-healing & finding love.

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.

By Richard Schwindt TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Oct. 30 2015
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is quite the joyride; a morality fable - classic as they come - trying on the clothes of porn and existential travel. Along the path no stone of sexual or therapeutic adventure will be left unturned. Picture Mr Strauss at the start, compulsive cheater on the beautiful, sexy, loyal and loving Ingrid. His behavior is compulsive and wrecking his bliss. Addressing these failings Strauss will careen between the darkest corners of 12 step browbeating and libertine backwaters that seem to come straight from the annals of the Hellfire Club, circa the eighteenth century. Orgies? Sure. Harem full of horny drifters? Of course. Cognitive Behavior Therapy? Why not? I was spending time with a psychiatrist friend today and telling him about the book. His question: "Is this on the level?" I told him that was my question too and how I had actually looked up a few of Strauss' references. In the end I was convinced that with small embellishment Strauss had lived the story. Which meant that the author of "The Game" (Pick Up Artists on the loose) had finally taken the agony and ecstasy route to deeper satisfaction and found himself a wife. This is a worthwhile read with something for everyone (?!) It definitely takes the long route around to true wisdom but is much fun for the searching reader. Recommended.

This was a great book that is the most honest and straightforward look into the male psyche.

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.

Neil Strauss recounts his own true story of growing up and growing into a real relationship. His RockStar stories are mind blowing and out of this world (reader discretion advised!) but the real message from this book is the uncomfortable truth about intimate relationships. I'll give you a hint .. it's not about the him or her / in or out of your life ;)

Neil Strauss is always entertaining. I'd read a book of his if it was about eating dirt.

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.

Amazingly insightful... What a journey from the Game to The Truth... Neil lays it all bear and takes us down some really dark roads at time. But the learnings are really worth it.
This book will lead you to a lot of introspection and self-analysis.

I agree with one of Neil's last thoughts in this book. Read this before reading the Game. Then go lose yourself, find yourself,fall in or out of love, or whatever you need to do. And have some epiphanies along the way.
