Publisher's Summary

Dennis Hof, proprietor of the world-famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel and the P.T. Barnum of prostitution, charts his path to fame and infamy, while dispensing homespun wisdom about sex, sales, money, and how to live as the country's most recognizable pimp. In The Art of the Pimp, Dennis Hof offers a hilarious, insightful, behind-the-scenes look at life as the proprietor of The Moonlight Bunny Ranch, the world's most famous legal brothel, and recounts his chaotic life as the king of America's sex industry. Hof, the star of HBO's critically lauded series Cathouse, reveals the tricks of turning tricks, the secrets of his outrageous marketing stunts, and scandalous details of his friendships with porn stars, prostitutes, and politicians. Listeners will learn how Hof's "girls" negotiate the highest prices for sex, the dirty little secrets of getting men to fall in love with them, and the inside tales of "The Girlfriend Experience," the number one requested menu item. The Art of the Pimp will take listeners on a wild ride through his countless sexual conquests, romantic failures, and business successes.

There is a lot of Game to be learned but you have to dig through a lot useless information

While he has a lot valuable game sprinkled through the book, you have to listen to a lot of useless stories about himself, the overall story was really boring, When he explains game about the 304 is very interesting, but then he starts talking about how much he likes to f0ck, and how many women women he has f0cked, and he likes blondes, He is great, etc. I wish he could have focused on the 304 game with the stories of his clients and his girls, that what more intresting than his personal life. It could have been a highly entertaining and short book. If you have patience read it, otherwise skip it.

Entertaining

I found this book entertaining from start to finish. I also appreciate that they have excerpts from various figures in Dennis' life to give their input and perspective about him, leveling out the biases from Dennis' point of view.

Great read and surprising twist towards the end

I like where Dennis took this book and how it’s a journey of his own life, desires, flaws, and tragedies.

Some what redundant

Some what redundant. Keeps driving home certain points for the entire story. Other than that it was pretty decent

Good book but ending was hard to listen to.

The psychology "expert" in the last 20 minutes of the book made it hard to finish. Not necessarily saying Dennis was a good guy and didn't have his own issues but the female victimization narrative for choosing to involve themselves with a KNOWN stone cold pimp at the end came off as biased and unnecessary and is the epitome of feminist hypocrisy. Other than that good book.

Great book!

All memoirs should be multifarious like this one — a well-balanced narrative in which all parties shared their point of view.

Mistake

I made a mistake by ordering this book. Didn’t listen to much of it, Although I found Hof interesting in life reading the details of his life is not interesting.
