I had a friend recommend the book to me a couple of years ago and I finally got around to reading it. A few pages into it and I knew I was hooked and ended up finishing it in a night. The book itself is a collection of short stories, which made it an easy read - as the situations, characters, etc. are always changing. The content of the stories typically revolves around partying, alcohol, and sexual endeavors of the author during his youth and [post] college years. Not a book for the fainthearted, as the contents tend to be raunchy and profane. Overall, this was an interesting book that constantly left me wondering what insane and bawdy acts Tucker Max would pull next.
