It is obvious that Hugh was not always a wealthy man, as expected he was born in an ordinary family. Disaccustomed in school without much enthusiasm and took a course of psychology at the University. In the interval between school and University had to go to the army, whence came the Second world war. Yes, there is a point in his career. True, he was at war already when it came to an end.

He started his journalism career with the post of advertising copywriter for Esquire magazine. He soon dumped the editor-in-chief, because he refused to pay him an extra 5 bucks to paycheck. And rightly so. You would do well to learn from this guy how we need to soberly assess their work.

In 1960, Hugh appeared before fans of Playboy in a new way — in a silk Smoking jacket and a pipe in his hand. It was the Golden year of Playboy. State of the Hefner grew by leaps and bounds.
By 1970 the circulation of the magazine has reached 7 million copies a month. Two years later, Hugh made a profit of 12 million dollars. However, in the mid- ‘ 70s Playboy has faced competition began to grow and there were new magazines for men that were more popular.
With his first wife, Hefner lived for 10 years, after the divorce, he is 30 years old was a bachelor. Of course, not excluding sexual relations with the models from their magazine. There was a time when Hugh lived in his mansion with 7 girls at the age from 18 to 28 years. Yeah… that was the dream.
