The Game
Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the bestselling author, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the year -- guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever. On his journey from AFC (average frustrated chump) to PUA (pick-up artist) to PUG (pick-up guru), Strauss not only shares scores of original seduction techniques but also has unforgettable encounters with the likes of Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Heidi Fleiss, and Courtney Love. And then things really start to get strange -- and passions lead to betrayals lead to violence. The Game is the story of one man's transformation from frog to prince -- to prisoner in the most unforgettable book of the year.

Game Over
From the author of the blockbuster bestseller The Game: A shockingly personal, surprisingly relatable, brutally honest memoir, in which the celebrated dating expert confronts the greatest challenge he has ever faced: monogamy and fidelity Most of us are told, from the moment we are old enough to understand a story, that there is a golden path waiting to take us safely through the jungle of life: get a good job, fall in love, get married, have children, and live happily ever after. It sounds simple enough. Yet as a species, we seem to have an incredibly difficult time making it happen. So, one day, I looked around and saw my friends frustrated and neglected in their marriages-some being unfaithful, others white-knuckling it, many surrendering to their fate, and a few living in denial. And I saw myself still unmarried, childless, and, in the biggest disappointment of all to myself, cheating. And I wondered if it was possible to change the odds-and the rules-for myself . . . The story that follows, however, is not a journey that was undertaken by choice or for the purposes of a book. It is a painfully honest account of a life crisis that was forced on me by my own behavior and its consequences. And 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. Neil Strauss became famous to millions around the world as the author of The Game, a funny and slyly instructive account of how he transformed himself from a scrawny, insecure nerd into the ultra-confident, ultra-successful "pickup artist" known as Style. The book jump-started the international "seduction community," and made Strauss a household name-revered or notorious-among single men and women alike. But the experience of writing The Game also transformed Strauss into a man who could have what every man wants: the ability to date-and/or have casual sex with-almost every woman he met. The results were heady, to be sure. But they also conditioned him to view the world as a kind of constant parade of women, sex, and opportunity-with intimacy and long-term commitment taking a back seat. That is, until he met the woman who forced him to choose between herself and the parade. The choice was not only difficult, it was wrenching. It forced him deep into his past, to confront not only the moral dimensions of his pickup lifestyle, but also a wrenching mystery in his childhood that shaped the man that he became. It sent him into extremes of behavior that exposed just how conflicted his life had become. And it made him question everything he knew about himself, and about the way men and women live with and without each other. He would never be the same again. Searingly honest, compulsively readable, this new book may have the same effect on you.

The Truth
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.

The Game - out of print
Nothing you have heard about The Game will prepare you for it. Neil Strauss reveals the bizarre world of the pick-up artist—men who devote their lives to mastering the techniques of seducing women. None of this is fiction. These men have their own vernacular and codes of honour, they trade strategies online, attend each other’s seminars and live together in houses around the world they call Projects. New York Times and Rolling Stone journalist Neil Strauss spent two years traveling in what is known as the ‘seduction community’, a secret society of men committed to becoming pick-up artists (PUAs). Through Internet newsgroups and international workshops, he entered a world of bizarre and compelling characters—from charismatic leaders like Mystery and Ross Jeffries to the eccentric bachelors and arrested adolescents who followed their every lead. He spent night after night approaching countless new ‘targets’, until he had developed the ability to connect, almost immediately, with any woman who crossed his path. Within a matter of months, Neil Strauss—once a self-described average frustrated chump (AFC)—had transformed himself into Style, the king of the PUAs. Hysterical and harrowing by turns, filled with cameos from Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, Courtney Love, Heidi Fleiss, and others, The Game is the story of what happens when one man harnesses the power to seduce the most desirable women in the world—only to find his own world come crashing down around him. A compulsively readable account of one man’s discovery of the madness that lingers at the fringes of civilised interaction. It’s dating, but not as we know it.

The Long Hard Road Out of Hell
When this best-selling autobiography was originally released, readers were shocked: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell was the darkest, funniest, most controversial, and best-selling rock book of its time—and it became the template, both visually and narratively, for almost every rock book since. Marilyn Manson is not just a music icon, it turned out, but one of the best storytellers of his generation. Written with bestselling author Neil Strauss, beautifully designed with dozens of exclusive photographs, and modeled on Dante's Inferno, this edition of The Long Hard Road Out of Hell features a bonus chapter not in the hardcover. In the shocking and candid memoir, Manson takes readers from backstage to emergency rooms to jail cells, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Along the way, you'll hear what happens to fans—and celebrities—who dare to venture backstage with the one of the world's most dangerous rock stars. In the words of Elle magazine, the book "makes Madonna's infamous Sex seem downright wholesome in comparison."
