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.

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.

Biography of Dennis Hof

The bold is more like a biography of Dennis. It does give a pretty good idea of the adult

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.

Well worth the read!!!!!

He knew he couldn't bring himself to talk about his bad points so he also gave voice to those who hate him. I've never ever seen that in a biography. some parts hit home till they were hard to hear. Not sure if he's burning in hell-fire as predicted in the book, but he certainly was never boring.
