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.

    Neil is a brilliant writer and I cannot say enough about this book. At this point I am exactly where Neil starts this book on his journey. If you are a guy or a gal who thinks the grass is greener, then this book is a must read. Ive been blaming people, family, friends, teachers all of my life for things that I needed to fix internally. Ive been a sex addict for half of my life and it has left me with nothing to show for it. I have two failed marriages and Im lonely. After reading this book many of the questions I had in my head about monogamy and non monogamy have been answered and its time for me to grow up. Thank you Neil for this gift!
  • Thank You, Neil

    The Truth is a book that means a lot to me. Neil’s journey inspired me to embark on a journey of my own, and for that I am grateful. I share this book with friends and family more than any other book in the hope that they get even a tiny percentage of the benefit this book has given me.
