Back cover copy

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.
