Seduced by Neil Strauss: The Truth Behind The Game

"There was a pickup artist who met a girl, and within 15 minutes they were having sex in the bathroom," says Neil Strauss.

"They're now married."

"On the other hand, I'm sure there are plenty of girls who have guys who want to sleep with them; they chase them and chase them for weeks or months, and once they get the sex it's over."

Strauss is telling me a story - one I've heard many times before - as we share the backseat of a cab to JFK.

We had just exited our own New York marathon - one that went 36 hours and featured a select crop of hand-picked models and the world’s most elusive pick up artists - and Strauss was on his way back home to Los Angeles.

"There are two kinds of women in this world," Strauss clarifies.

"The ones who have read the book and the ones who haven't."

Black Crowes Take Over New York with Five-Night Stand


"Good evening weirdos," says Chris Robinson.

It's night one of The Black Crowes five-night stand at New York's Best Buy Theater - and Halloween - but the band decided not to dress up.

"You may be wondering why we're not dressed up, but we are," Robinson explained.

"We're a futuristic hologram of our former selves. That's pretty fucking scary."

The boys rocked a slew of BC classics, including "Sister Luck," "Downtown Money Waster," and "Soul Singing" for the NY crowd, many of whom were decked out in elaborate crows costumes.

Check out a snippet of "Sister Luck," above.
