The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships
This is not a journey that was undertaken for journalistic purposes It is a painfully honest account of a life crisis that was forced on me by my own behavior and its consequences As such it requires sharing a lot of things I m not proud of and a few things I feel like I should regret a whole lot more than I actually do Because unfortunately I am not the hero in this tale I am the villain So begins Neil Strauss s long awaited follow up to The Game the funny and slyly instructive work of immersive journalism that jump started the international seduction community and made Strauss a household name revered or notorious among single men and women alike In The Truth Strauss takes on his greatest challenge yet Relationships And in this wild and highly entertaining ride he explores 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 What draws us to the partners we choose Can we keep passion and romance from fading over time His quest for answers takes 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 What he discovered changed everything he knew about love sex relationships and ultimately himself Searingly honest and compulsively readable The Truth just may have the same effect on you If The Game taught you how to meet members of the opposite sex The Truth will teach you how to keep them
