Do you believe in monogamy? Neil Strauss didn't. The New York Times journalist made a name for himself advocating freedom, sex and opportunity as author of The Game -- with intimacy and long-term commitment taking a back seat. That is, until he met the woman who forced him to ask 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? - Can you keep passion and romance from fading over time? Strauss set out on a quest for answers. It 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 and his family's secrets. What he discovered changed everything he knew about love, sex, relationships and, ultimately, himself. The Truth may have the same effect on you.
