Nearly six decades ago, Hugh Marston Hefner created Playboy magazine, which effectively ignited Americas 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 its 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, businessand, 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 Hefners irresistibly beguiling world. If you dont swing, dont ringlingerie and pajamas optional.
