Product Description

About the Author

Tucker Max received his B.A. from the University of Chicago, where he graduated in 1998. He attended Duke Law School on an academic scholarship, where he graduated with a J.D. in 2001 (despite the fact that he neglected to buy any of his textbooks for his final two years and spent part of one semester - while still enrolled in classes - living in Cancun). He currently lives in Chicago, and when he isn't drinking or fornicating, he writes for his website, www.tuckermax.com.

We've all had nights out, but nothing like these. And I think I'm personally thankful about that; but reading Tucker Max's stories you have to hand it to the guy. He's an absolute star. I don't know how he does it, but somehow you actually get to like this ridiculously overconfident, inappropriate, womanizing git. You'll be lying on the floor laughing or curled up wincing at some of these stories, but in the end you just have to sit back in admiration.

No, it's not sophisticated and yeah, this book is like snack food, it's true. But since I needed a few laughs I thought I might check it out. Damn, if it isn't funny. Basically, it's a series of true life reckless anecdotes. The bluntness and lack of pretention makes them appealing somehow -- like gossip from the screw-up mate: 'You'll never believe what happened to me last night!...' This is the perfect book to read in the loo, straight up. Add it to your shopping cart ('cause remember there's free shipping)! Also recommended: THE LOSERS'S CLUB by Richard Perez, STUART: A Life Backwards by Alexander Masters

Only half way in, but there are moments when I really despise everything that Tucker Max stands for. He's not really funny and he doesn't have a lot to teach the reader. If you want to read about absurd goings on, I'd recommend 'The Dirt' by Motley Crue. This book however comes off as one-dimensional, where the one or two relatively funny jokes definitely do outstay their welcome.

Tucker Max is the kind of person who you definitely would not want to associate yourself with if you had a choice. People like him would only drag you down to their level, and where's the "fun" in that?

I know Tucker Max has done incredibly well for himself, but that's still no excuse for acting like a drunk moron, losing all sense of self-respect, and coming across as an unlikeable loser with few redeemimg qualities.

Everyone has got stories, Everyone has got funny tales they tell to their mates down the pub. Nothing you will have heard will be funnier than Tucker Max. Well written and an easy read. It's a hard book to put down and even harder book to read on public transport. Apparently, it's not the done thing to laugh out loud!

Some parts are genuinely hilarious but there is a lot boring nonsensical filler in between.

The 'I AM TUCKER MAX' arrogance wears very thin after a while and you gradually lose interest in the character.

Its worth a read, the book is so short and easy to read its not exactly a heavy investment of time or brain power.

I think any lad thats been on a boys holiday and a few wild uni nights could write a book as equally 'crazy'.

One of the funniest books I have read!
I thought I did some stuff when I was growing up but Tucker has pushed that to the limit!
They should name a mountain or space shuttle in his name--- you must read this book,unless your fat then it will just depress you!!

If there were more stars this book would have got it!!

It is what it is- a childish telling of one man and his drinking. If this appeals to you then great- you will love it. If not, then stay away.

I personally found it hit and miss; some bits had me laughing loudly; some bits wanting to through the book in the bin.

Format: Paperback
Tucker Max's writing, anthologised in this book, works on a number of different levels. It provides, in the blunt and unadulterated style that flows through the cult movement of writing that has been christened 'fratire' (exponents include internet satirists Maddox and Robert Hamburger, as well as Max himself) a hilarious glimpse into the surreal universe that is Tucker Max's life. The titles of many of the stories alone (i.e. The Blowjob Follies) instantly conjure the image of peurile, "gross out", post Farelley brothers humour, but these stories are much more then that. Max is a tremendous writer, and how he turns the experiences of his life into not only hilarious comedy, but also morality tales, social satire, and character studies is nothing short of genuis. The dialouge (again, all real) is superb: witty, subtle, and instantly qoutable, whilst Max's insightful narration is eqauly amusing.

The strength of the book are how the stories come alive. The subject matter of the stories themselves are extreme enough, but it is the little details that Max injects into his tales that provide some of the book's more glorious moments. Add to that a superb cast of characters, all Max's real life friends, each with there own quirks and back stories that make them both endearing and repulsive in eqauly hilarious measures. None more so then Max himself; behind his narcassistic, manipulative persona appears to be someone who knew what sort of life he wanted, and decided that he was going to live that life, regardless of the consequences.

And that seems to be the highly uplifting moral and subtext of the whole book.
