It is a painfully honest account of a life crisis that was forced on me by my own behavior and its consequences. He's tried therapy, he's tried learning- to sum it up, it didn't take.

Readers should understand the backdrop of this work: The book is written by a millionaire rock-n-roll Malibu journalist who is having intimacy issues with his Mexican supermodel girlfriend who is decades younger than him. In life, whoever has the strongest reality wins. The book is highly interesting and very engaging. I think just about anyone could take a few things away from the book in analyzing our own behaviors in life, love and psychology just as I did from The Game, which was geared mainly towards fratboy douchebags.

Історія, насичена численними сценами непересічного досвіду здебільшого сексуальних походеньок , в багатьох розділах переплітається із класичним фрейдизмом, але зрештою видається на диво прагматичною і сучасною. Про те, які недоліки часто мають моногамні стосунки, про поліамурні стосунки, я ніколи не була впевнена, що вони можуть функціонувати в тривалому часі, і розповіді Ніла це ілюструють, про різні варіанти групових секс-зібрань, відкритих стосунків і т.
Can we keep passion and romance from fading over time? It's so depressing to consider how many men there are doing shallow thing after shallow thing and derping all over the place, putting their needs not only before but at the expense of others, trying to figure out why they don't feel spiritually sated. The idea that we repeat our childhood experiences has been commonplace since Freud, but is it true? This is easily one of the funniest books I have ever read. It is still about self. I love reading, but most books I read in a slow pace, savouring the words, taking my time to comprehend and make myself sure I am understanding the message behind the words. I would suggest all people read this and I mean all this you need to be challenged. They've got as many issues as you do.
When a friend at work listened to a Lewis Howes podcast with Neil on the book and told me that I had to listen to it I took the hint and downloaded a copy.

And it made him question everything he knew about himself, and about the way men and women live with and without each other. His descriptions of his experiences are emotionally intense and harrowing, as he struggles with the confusion he experiences between his previous attitudes about sex and the addiction model he is exposed to in rehab.

I had seen The Truth by Neil Strauss around and noticed a few people I knew were reading it. Watch this video and find out! Change your phone number 2. That was a necessary survival strategy, especially as a woman raised in a dogmatic religious household and then, as an adult, navigating these subcultures.

The balance between the highs and the lows seemed a little off. Now, I have to say that Neil Strauss is not in any way a practitioner of polyamory. This collection of words on paper is absolute garbage - A book about monogamy written by a man-baby who does not understand love. This is where I hope that readers can continue their personal journey and expand on any areas of interest over what can be learnt from the book. Simultaneously Strauss gives good advice. Because, unfortunately, I am not the hero in this tale. So riveting at times that it was uncomfortable - in a very challenging, and therefore very good way.
