This book lives up to its name, but don't judge it by its cover. "The Naked Truth..." takes readers by the hand and leads them down the pebbled paths that wind through the resort with arguably the most devoted clientele in the world: Hedonism II. The cover of this book shows stick figures frolicking along. Perhaps this is because without spending time at Hedonism, you can only get a brief outline of what this magical place has in store. The people who go to "Hedo," however, are very real. Ms.Santilli does an accurately delightful job of communicating this. Guests there come from all walks of life to revel in their own individuality and sexuality, and to celebrate these qualities in the people around them. If you are a 'repeat offender' counting days until your next trip to Negril, buy this book to read on the airplane and to possibly recount your own HedoTales. If you enjoyed Hedonism once and can not wait to go back, buy this book to read in between calls to your travel agent. If you are considering a first trip to Hedo II, buy this book - it does indeed live up to its name and is worth every dime. Truly 5 stars, and a definite 2 thumbs up; Ms. Santilli bares it with the very best, writing with a very sexy style. Buy this book, then buy any sequel, then buy them all for your friends.

This is the first travel book I've read that didn't put me into a coma. Each page I laughed. Each page I learned. This book supplied the answers to the questions unasked. Woodies, Wallys, (...) checks for toilet paper, floating members (hell, I've had one all my life and didn't realize it floats), etiquette, all inclusive tipping and much more. I realize how little I knew when I first vacationed "all inclusive". This book isn't just for those interested in Hedo Resorts, Jamaica, or any all inclusive vacation; This book can stand alone for "a good read". I must return to Jamaica to put my new found knowledge to work.... They need me.

Format: Paperback
The author allows you a glimpse into the wacky world of the strangest and most hilarious vacation you could ever imagine (the good). Through her sense of humor and quotes from repeat guests, you will prepare yourself for a holiday to remember. You will have the benefit of knowing the pitfalls of the resort (the bad) and what to do with your inhibitions at check-in (the ugly).
The author's reports of past events lead the reader to expect the outrageous. If you consider your life too dull with few laughs, reading the book will give you oodles of ideas for spicing up your life whether at Hedonism II or maybe in your own abode. The description of games you can play in the hot tub, pool area, bar, beach and vicinity are worth the price of the book alone.
The photos are a riot. Don't miss the tips on what to pack. Learn why loyal guests spend ALL their vacation time in the same resort year... after year... after year.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a travel guide "The Naked Truth About Hedonism II" is right on the mark. It is a book which is both fun to read and very practical at the same time. Ms. Santilli provides the first time visitor with a wealth of very practical information about this most unusual of resorts. Look here to find out what to bring, what to buy, what to wear (and not wear), what to do, etc. It should be required reading for the first timer. For those who have been to Hedonism II it is a welcome reminder of past experiences and people. It contains numerous tales of visitors experiences and opinions. The book, and the hotel, are for the open minded. Be warned that some will object to the detailed discussion of nudity, sex, drinking, etc. For them reading this book will help them avoid what will probably be their idea of a 'vacation in hell'. The only problem with 'The Naked Truth About Hedonism II' are the photos. Many of them are too dark (low contrast). This book is recommended reading for those going to Jamaica.

Format: Paperback
Don't believe the rumors and wild stories reported other places about Hedonism II. In TNTAH2, Chris does a great job of explaining and illustrating the experience of a very different resort in Jamaica. Hedo II is like no other place on earth. If it wasn't for the First Edition book, my wife & I may not have gone there, now we can't wait to get back. Now the Second Edition has even more tips, photos, and great Hedo stories which veterans will find hillarious (or be very jealous!), and the inexperienced will find almost unbelievable. But you can believe it because Chris has "been there, done that" many times and writes without authorization, support or endorsement of Hedo management.
This book will prepare "virgins" for their first trip by giving tips for what to bring, what to expect, and explains who goes to Hedo. Is this the place for me? Do people really.....? Can I really wear THAT? Should I bring.....? These questions are answered, and many others you never thought to ask. Chris is an experienced "repeat offender" at Hedo and tells the true stories, debunks the myths, and gives many tips needed to make the most of your trip. The wife & I read it straight through the minute it arrived at our door, and we review it again everytime we are longing to go again. Whether you are a couple looking to experience some romance, or a single wanting to party for a week, this book will prepare you for a trip to a place that so many repeaters call Home.
