The Truth

An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships

Neil Strauss

It turns out that relationships don’t require sacrifices. They just require growing up — and the ability to stop clinging to immature needs that are so tenacious, they keep the mature needs from getting met
The Truth by Neil Strauss (Paperback ISBN 9781782110972) book cover

From the author of the 2.5 million-copy-bestseller The Game


Neil Strauss made a name for himself advocating freedom, sex and opportunity as the author of The Game. Then he met the woman who forced him to question everything. Neil’s search for answers 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. What he discovered changed everything he knew about love, sex, relationships and, ultimately, himself. The Truth may have the same effect on you.

“The guy who wrote The Game and lived The Game searches for love and learns that it’s way, way harder. And funnier”
