Publisher's Summary

No more games; it's time for the truth. I am not the hero in this tale. I am the villain.
Do you believe in monogamy? Neil Strauss didn't. The New York Times journalist made a name for himself advocating freedom, sex and opportunity as author of The Game - with intimacy and long-term commitment taking a backseat.
That is until he met the woman who forced him to ask the questions that men and women are asking themselves every day: Is it natural to be faithful to one person for life? Do alternatives to monogamy lead to better relationships and greater happiness? Can you keep passion and romance from fading over time?
Strauss set out on a quest for answers. It took him from Viagra-laden free-love orgies to sex addiction clinics, from cutting-edge science labs to modern-day harems and, most terrifying of all, to his own mother and his family's secrets. What he discovered changed everything he knew about love, sex, relationships and, ultimately, himself. The Truth may have the same effect on you.

It's all about his issues

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book just spoke about Neil's personal issues that he went through. There was nothing to gain from a readers perspective on how to manage their relationships.

Neil taught me a lot about picking up women in my twenties. The tactics worked very well. These techniques allowed me to successfully 'open' and court my now wife. Like Neil, probably most people, our intimacy/love issues, likely result of childhood trauma have led to a very rocky marriage. Now I'm my thirties, married, I think the knowledge and Wisdom and 'The Truth' will be more effective on a deeper level for my personal development than 'The Game' was. Thanks again Neil!

Surprisingly powerful

This is the first review I have done. I bought this after enjoying the game. Whilst expecting an exciting narrative, I was floored by the honesty of the author and his journey. It is equal parts entertaining, titillating and awesome in scale(relatively!) The truth will change your life.
