Neil and I became friends when he interviewed me for The Truth, his just-released follow-up to the colossal best-seller, The Game. I wasn't a fan of some of the ideas underlying the approach to dating Neil describes in The Game and, as it turns out, neither is he. The Truth is certainly one of the most courageous, vulnerable, self-revelatory books I've read. You'll learn more about Neil and Ingrid than you know about some of your closest friends. We woke up very early to record this conversation while we were semi-conscious. Download this episode.
