Publisher's Summary

From the author:

"My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world."

Actual reader feedback:

"I am completely baffled as to how you can congratulate yourself for being a womanizer and a raging drunk, or think anyone cares about an idiot like you. Do you really think that exploiting the insecurities of others while getting wasted is a legitimate thing to offer?"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you: for sharing with us your wonderful tales of drunken revelry, for teaching me what it means to be a man, for just existing so I know that there is another option; I too can say 'screw the system' and be myself and have fun. My life truly began when I finished reading your stories. Now, when faced with a quandary about what course of action I should take, I just ask myself, 'What would Tucker do?', and I do it, and I am a better man for it."

"I find it truly appalling that there are people in the world like you. You are a disgusting, vile, repulsive, repugnant, foul creature. Because of you, I don't believe in God anymore. No just God would allow someone like you to exist."

"I'll stay with God as my Lord, but you are my savior. I just finished reading your brilliant stories, and I laughed so hard I almost vomited. I want to bring that kind of joy to people. You're an artist of the highest order and a true humanitarian to boot. I'm in both shock and awe at how much I want to be you."

"You are the coolest person I can even imagine existing. If you slept with my girlfriend, it'd make me love her more."

Critic Reviews

"Occasionally, a book comes along that horrifies and disgusts you while making you laugh out loud all at the same time. This book does that and more." (The Rebel Yell)

okay... ummm

well... I just finished "reading/listening to" War and Peace. I really needed something mindless and funny.

The stories are raunchily funny, I have to admit. JUST DON'T LET HIM READ HIS OWN AUDIOBOOK!!! THIS DUDE WAS DRUNK AS HE TRIED TO READ HIS OWN WORK. He slurred and sped through most of it and I hardly understood a word.

COME ON!

If you can get past the idiot reading, you can actually enjoy the idiot's writing. It's funny.

I don't think he should have narrated the book...

Any additional comments?

WARNING: This book is not for the faint of heart or for those who are easily offended. Go look up some nice, wholesome Jeff Foxworthy or something.

I didn't much care for his narration, but this book was a gold-mine of stories. I have even RE-TOLD some of the stories from this book to MY OWN friends. Some people just know how to press all the wrong buttons in any given situation, and Tucker Max is one of those people. He somehow repeatedly makes the exact opposite decision that any, wholesome, upstanding, caring person would choose... and only manages to make it worse yet again

A delightful read if you like a good rascal. If not, STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM THIS BOOK AS POSSIBLE.

LOVED IT!!

Being a female, it seems odd that I would appreciate or even "get" Tucker's humor. But, his stories are hilarious! I especially loved when he visited his friend in Texas and his infamous "pissed the bed hookup". He is raw and real. I absoultely enjoyed it. However it is not for the faint hearted..there is toilet humor and strong sexual stuff...so beware!

Tucker Max?

Tucker Max (great name by the way) is the most famous person I had never heard of. OK, I'm a retired Baby Boomer so I can be forgiven my generational ignorance. I listened to this one, and his next three books, and I have rarely laughed so hard in my entire life. I mean loud laughing - doubled-over, tummy-holding, pant-peeing laughing. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him anywhere near my grand-daughter, but I get it. On the plus side, he's clearly very smart, loyal and completely honest - a good guy to know. I think his reading made the audio version better, not worse. Did he swallow some words? Sure. Just like we all do when recounting a funny story. The audio book is more like an informal conversation than a formal reading. I can't imagine anyone else reading this book.

Like A Great Bar Story!

One of my most favorite audio titles. If I were to "read" this book, I probably wouldn't enjoy it as much. Tucker Max did an amazing job as a narrator on this title. I saw complaints on how the narrator was informal and sketchy, but that's what drives the performance to 5 stars for me. It was narrated as if I was drinking a Blue Moon at my local pub, and one of my best friends was telling me about this wild weekend he just experienced with the floozy from apartment 5E.

If you saw the movie, I feel bad for you, cause the movie was honestly horrible compared to the audio version. This is a must listen to title if you enjoy a good old-fashioned raunchy bar story.

Disappointing

I am a passive fan of Tucker's having read his content online for a few years. However, who knew that he has no business telling his own stories in his voice? His reading is horrendus.
Its terribly disappointing.

the WORST narration EVER

While there are some amusing anecdotes buried within many pointless details and much worthless dialogue (but, I AM a fan of him and his lifestyle)the narration is HORRIBLE. There is no better example of why authors should NEVER READ THEIR OWN WORKS. Hire a professional!

In 15+ years of listening to recorded books, this is the worst!

Holy crap my life sucks

This book is funny and terrible. I enjoyed it big time.

One really strange positive effect this had on me is it really inspired me to go out and enjoy life while I still have my youth.

Who wants to go to Vegas?

Repulsive and horribly narrated

In terms of subject matter, everything about this book is nauseating. In terms of its narration, it's nothing less than EXCRUCIATING. The takeaway from having suffered through this vomit-inspiring stutterfest? - Tucker Max is a boring oxygen thief. That's about it.

And by the way, his over-the-top bragging about attending Duke for law school was hilarious. If you want to act like such an arrogant assh*le, pick a better law school. Like NYU. Or Harvard. Or Columbia. Or Yale. Or Stanford. Etc. What a joke.
