NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL MOVIE STARRING MACHINE GUN KELLY, DANIEL WEBBER, DOUGLAS BOOTH, AND IWAN RHEON, DIRECTED BY JEFF TREMAINE.
Celebrate thirty years of the world's most notorious rock band with the deluxe collectors' edition of The Dirt—the outrageous, legendary, no-holds-barred autobiography of Mötley Crüe. Fans have gotten glimpses into the band's crazy world of backstage scandals, celebrity love affairs, rollercoaster drug addictions, and immortal music in Mötley Crüe books like Tommyland and The Heroin Diaries, but now the full spectrum of sin and success by Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Vince Neil, and Mick Mars is an open book in The Dirt. Even fans already familiar with earlier editions of the bestselling exposé will treasure this gorgeous deluxe edition. Joe Levy at Rolling Stone calls The Dirt "without a doubt . . . the most detailed account of the awesome pleasures and perils of rock & roll stardom I have ever read. It is completely compelling and utterly revolting."
How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, the mega-bestselling memoir, triumphant survival story, and cautionary tale that spent over six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and rocketed adult film icon Jenna Jameson into the mainstream spotlight, is now in paperback and ebook for the very first time. Her unforgettable memoir, written with master storyteller Neil Strauss, is many things at once: a shocking sexual history; an insider's guide to the secret workings of the billion-dollar adult-film industry; and a gripping thriller that probes deep into Jameson's dark past. With never-before-seen photographs from Jenna's private collection, exclusive photos taken for this book, and original cartoon strips, this memoir is an unparalleled exploration of sexual freedom.
In the underbelly of Las Vegas, a cesspool of warring biker gangs and seedy strip clubs, gawky, brace-faced Jenna Massoli was transformed into the bombshell Jenna Jameson. Today, Jenna is the biggest star in the history of adult movies, consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful women alive. But behind the glamour and the meteoric rise to fame was a path paved with tragedy and heartbreak. As a teenager—drawn into a dark and chaotic world where rape, abuse, and murder were commonplace—Jenna began her rapid downward spiral of addiction and degradation . . . while at the same time becoming the porn world's biggest crossover success story.
IT'S TIME FOR THE TRUTH.
Neil Strauss made a name for himself advocating freedom, sex and opportunity as the author of The Game. Then he met the woman who forced him to question everything. Neil's search for answers 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. What he discovered changed everything he knew about love, sex, relationships and, ultimately, himself. The Truth may have the same effect on you.
The best-selling autobiography of America’s most controversial celebrity icon, Marilyn Manson (with a bonus chapter not in the hardcover).
In his twenty-nine years, rock idol Manson has experienced more than most people have (or would want to) in a lifetime. Now, in his shocking and candid memoir, he takes readers from backstage to gaol cells, from recording studios to emergency rooms, from the pit of despair to the top of the charts, and recounts his metamorphosis from a frightened Christian schoolboy into the most feared and revered music superstar in the country. Illustrated with dozens of exclusive photographs and featuring a behind-the-scenes account of his headline-grabbing Dead to the World tour.
It begins in North Philadelphia. He was born an accident, unwanted by his parents. His father was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. His brother was a crack dealer and petty thief. And his mother was overwhelmingly strict, beating him with belts, frying pans, and his own toys. The odds, in short, were stacked against our young hero, just like the odds that are stacked against the release of a new book in this era of social media (where Hart has a following of over 100 million, by the way). But Kevin Hart, like Ernest Hemingway, JK Rowling, and Chocolate Droppa before him, was able to defy the odds and turn it around. In his literary debut, he takes the reader on a journey through what his life was, what it is now, and how he's overcome each challenge to become the man he is today.
And that man happens to be the biggest comedian in the world, with tours that sell out football stadiums and films that have collectively grossed over $3.5 billion. He achieved this not just through hard work, determination, and talent: It was through his unique way of looking at the world.
Because just like a book has chapters, Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself. "Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter," he says. "So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?"
Candid, wickedly funny, and unforgettable, I Can't Make This Up is more than a memoir. It is a training manual designed to teach you a positive, drama-free outlook on life and code of conduct that will serve you, serve others, and serve your biggest, boldest dreams.

¿Es la fidelidad una quimera? ¿Son las alternativas a la monogamia el camino para conseguir mejores relaciones y alcanzar la felicidad? ¿Qué nos atrae en nuestros compañeros de aventuras y desventuras? ¿Podemos evitar que el deseo y la pasión se desvanezcan con el paso del tiempo?
Neil Strauss exploró estos enigmas tras sufrir una crisis existencial provocada por su adicción al sexo y el empleo sistemático (o más bien obsesivo) de los procedimientos que él mismo recomendaba. Se enamoró, y ese pequeño factor alteró completamente el paisaje. Un día decidió abdicar la corona de la seducción, cambió de bando y afrontó el mayor de los desafíos: la búsqueda del amor verdadero y, una vez hallado, de la estabilidad en la pareja. Una búsqueda que resultó ser extraordinariamente ardua e inesperadamente divertida.
"Pormenorizada y desternillantemente sincera crónica del ejercicio de la libertad sexual [. . .] Sí, hay orgías y convenciones de swingers, pero también muy profundas disquisiciones sobre el significado de la intimidad, las relaciones humanas y sobre todo lo que nos revela nuestro propio comportamiento sexual."
" [Strauss] nos deleita con las confesiones de su niñez atormentada y otras creencias absurdas que le acompañaron desde su más tierna infancia [...] para acabar convenciéndonos de que podemos ser los amos del universo, y él nos puede enseñar cómo. Delirante y tremendamente adictivo."
Laura Miller, Slates
"El tipo que escribió EL MÉTODO y se aplicó a conciencia en el ejercicio de sus propias enseñanzas se emperra ahora en dar con el amor verdadero y aprende, en tan noble empeño, que es mucho, mucho más difícil […] y más gracioso."
Joel Stein, Time
"Las epifanías consignadas en tan improbable retahíla de confesiones se antojan ridículamente obvias y sorprendentemente profundas a un tiempo... Quiero que leas este libro. Quiero que tus socios lean este libro. Más aún, quiero que hagas autocrítica y pienses en lo que dice sobre ti y el mundo que te rodea y tus relaciones."
D’orgies sous Viagra en cliniques pour dépendants sexuels, de laboratoires de pointe en harems des temps modernes, Neil Strauss va chercher des réponses…
Ce qu’il croyait savoir sur l’amour, le sexe et lui-même en sera changé à jamais.
Cansado de se sentir fracassado na arte da sedução, Neil Strauss, escritor e jornalista, assumiu sua dificuldade em atrair o sexo oposto. Com a ajuda de seu mentor, Mystery, Strauss desenvolveu as técnicas que o levariam a se tornar objeto do desejo feminino. Para proteger sua identidade, adotou o pseudônimo Style, mudou radicalmente a aparência, pôs em prática as técnicas aprendidas e aumentou incrivelmente o número de mulheres que já havia conquistado até aquele momento. Neste relato autobiográfico da transformação de um sujeito inseguro e desinteressante em um dos maiores mestres mundiais da sedução, Neil Strauss mergulha em um mundo sofisticado, inebriante e perturbador, habitado por homens que, inicialmente tímidos e pouco atraentes, aprenderam a se apresentar e a se comportar de forma absolutamente irresistível diante das mulheres. O resultado de sua experiência está neste livro explosivo e polêmico que ficou conhecido como a bíblia da sedução e se tornou garantia de mudança radical e definitiva para homens.
