Neil Strauss rethinks his pickup artist past, confesses 'The Truth' about relationships
To some seduction is an art. To others it's a cuthroat sport.
A decade ago, the writer Neil Strauss gained fame when his how-to guide to pickup women called "The Game" became a bestseller... and a "bro" bible for young men looking for shortcuts to sex.
The book also made Neil Strauss a very rich man.
But in the intervening years, Neil Strauss says he's given up on playing the game... and that he's a changed man. He says he's learned that the seducer's art is based on male insecurity and fear of the opposite sex.
His new book is called, "The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships."
Neil Strauss joined Anna Maria from Santa Monica, California.
