By M. G Watson VINE VOICE on August 29, 2013
Format: Paperback
Given that Peter North has had sex with 3,000-odd women in his life, it's not unreasonable to figure he might be a good man to ask for advice on how to improve your sex life. And that is the whole point of his little guide to meeting and dating beautiful women, PENETRATING INSIGHTS. If the book is superficial, disorganized, unfocused, poorly edited, and badly dated (it was written in 1994), it's also amusing and curiously uplifting -- the latter quality being something which every self-help book aspires to be, but very few actually are. As a friend of mine who worked in porn once replied to me, after I asked him what The North Pole was like: "He's a nice guy. What the hell does he have to be negative about?"

Getting on with the review: Peter North, born Alden Brown, is one of the longest-working porn stars in history, still going at it after 30 years in The Other Hollywood. In that time he's learned a lot about the female of the species and he tries to relate what he knows in 118 short, simply-written pages, divided up into:

1. Introduction
2. Why You're Not Getting Results
3. Confidence
4. Keeping In Shape (Or Not)
5. Grooming Tips (Dress To Get Results)
6. Peter North's Tips

It's true that a lot of what he says is painfully obvious stuff you should already know, and that the book lacks any real "ah-HA!" moments. There are few trade secrets in this book. Very little of what Peter tells you (dress well, act confident, use humor, work slowly, take care of your body, don't fear rejection, etc.) goes beyond common sense, and most of his tips on how to meet women predate the Internet, which utterly changed the dating game.
