I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell with 16 page photo insert - movie tie-in Author:Tucker Max 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 import... more »ant way: I share my adventures with the world. —from the Introduction 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."« less

At times I laughed so hard I could barely breathe, but mostly, this book made me fear for humanity. Far from just being an "asshole," as he calls himself, I sincerely believe this guy is a narcissistic sociopath. That, and I'm pretty sure his book gave my bookmark chlamydia.
Funny, funny, funny!!! Do not attempt to read this book if you are easily offended. I read this book with my book club and we laughed our heads off...another tip is, don't try to read this in public because you will laugh so hard you will make those around you uncomfortable. I will be the first to admit that this book is not for everyone, you will either love it or hate it but you will surely laugh at many of the stories.
Five years ago, I read many of these stories on Tucker's website and was laughing hysterically. Now, the stories aren't as funny to me. They are boring. After the 15th story about him puking in the bushes or in a cab and sleeping with some dumb bimbo, you get the idea. Tucker is a party god. Can I read something else now?

I tried to enjoy this, I really did. It was not the crude humor or sexist comments that bothered me, though. It was the overriding notion that this guy is a complete tool! He seems like the ultimate "bro" who thinks his antics are just the absolute limit of socially unacceptable behavior, but really isn't doing anything all that original or special. The idea that Tucker Max is well beyond his college years is what is most disturbing and amusing here. Honestly, I knew several guys in college who were a lot wilder than Tucker, with FAR better stories. Throughout 2/3 of this book I was nonplussed, waiting for the exciting or outrageous part of his repetitive and somewhat boring stories.
Tucker Max is one crazy guy. This book was very entertaining and at times hardly believable. I was really excited about jumping into his second book after reading some of his adventures and mishaps in this one.
