Overview

Nearly six decades ago, Hugh Marston Hefner created Playboy magazine, which effectively ignited America’s sexual revolution. The greatest living symbol of the Good Life, Hef created a world for himself that most men have yearned to inhabit, if only briefly, just to know what it’s like to be him. In Hef ’s Little Black Book, this universally envied international icon offers a treasury of his often wry and heartfelt wisdom as it applies to the realms of romance, hedonism, ambition, business—and, of course, sex.

Accompanied by tantalizing never-before-seen photographs from his vast private archive, Hef ’s Little Black Book is the gateway to Hugh Hefner’s irresistibly beguiling world. If you don’t swing, don’t ring—lingerie and pajamas optional.

Thus far I have not read the entire book, however, I skimmed it at the bookstore and have found the book to be absolutely the opposite of what I expected. I picked it up expecting a graphic, dirty summary of Hef's life and the tricks he has up his sleeve, but found it to be fabulously accurate and suprisingly interesting. Kudos to Hugh!

The ultimate player's guide Hef's Little Black Book by Hugh M. Hefner and Bill Zehme contains all the hidden secrets from the world's most famous Playboy, Hef for all to see. Yes this book is written tongue and check however it does give some uncanny advice to novice players. Broken down in five parts it takes on the mission from the chase to inside the bedroom. With glossy prints and cut way inserts full of gems of funny quotes like "I asked Barbi out the first night we met. 'But I've never been out with anyone over twenty-four,' she said. 'that's okay' I replied, 'Neither have I.'" When addressing pick up lines Hef declares to not use lines and be truthful, however "On the other hand, however, I've also had a lot of luck by simply saying 'My name is Hugh Hefner,' but that may not work for everyone." From what to wear, to the perfect after sex meal, Hef's Little Black Book does pack a good punch. Pick up a copy of Hef's Little Black Book by Hugh M. Hefner and Bill Zehme and be on your way to move up to the Playboy league.
