Neil Strauss has a really engaging writing style, and one of the things I liked most about this book was the transparency of his self and the real transition he makes as the story and book progresses. More than anything, this book is proof that people are always looking for community and validation. The stories that he recounts are interesting, but by the end of the book he abandons the lifestyle that he's put years into cultivating. It's not a great book, and it certainly has hints of misogyny, but it was entertaining and maybe provided a few future pickup lines.
