Neil Strauss became famous to millions around the world as the author of The Game, An account of how he transformed himself from a scrawny, insecure nerd into the ultra-confident, ultra-successful 'pickup artist' known as Style. The book made Strauss a household name revered - or notorious - among men and women alike. The experience of writing The Game transformed Strauss into a man who could have what every man wants. But it also conditioned him to view the world as a kind of constant parade of women, sex, and opportunity - with intimacy and long-term commitment taking a back seat. That is, until he met the woman who forced him to choose between herself and the parade. The choice forced Strauss deep into his past, to confront the childhood that shaped the man that he became. It sent him into extremes of behaviour that exposed just how conflicted his life had become. Game Over? charts Strauss' investigations into polyamorous communities, celibacy, sex addiction clinics and every permutation of relationship. And it made him question everything he knew about himself, and about the way men and women live with and without each other...He would never be the same again. Game Over? may have the same effect on you.
