The Truth An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships by Neil StraussIt’s a strange process to release a book, or anything, into the world.

Already, the first articles about the new book are turning into a strange narrative that is so far from The Truth.

So in preparation for you to read the book today, I want to tell you what my thoughts are on The Game and The Truth.

Just so whatever you may read, and however things may be presented, you know my direct thoughts.... Read more of this blog post »

description: Litquake is pleased to be hosting New York Times bestselling nonfiction author Neil Strauss for brunch goodies, coffee and conversation in our cozy San Francisco office space. When Strauss released the controversial 2005 how-to book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists, it caused an international sensation and became a runaway bestseller.

“Attraction is not an option. ”
Neil Strauss

“We have this idea that love is supposed to last forever. But love isn't like that. It's a free-flowing energy that comes and goes when it pleases. Sometimes, it stays for life; other times it stays for a second, a day, a month or a year. So don't fear love when it comes simply because it makes you vulnerable. But don't be surprised when it leaves either. Just be glad you had the opportunity to experience it.”
Neil Strauss

“In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn't because the universe is cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don't appreciate things that fall into our laps.”
Neil Strauss, The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
