At least this book serves as a warning! Women, beware! Parents, be scared! Men, please be the anti-Tucker! Drunken, selfish, womanizing that is sometimes funny, but mostly just mean and sad. Then again, I'm a woman, so I'm not exactly the target audience!
This book sounded like a funny read...The first few stories were funny but then it just got boring. How many drunk stories can I read? After a few they all sound the same. I would NOT waste your money on this one.
Not for the easily offendable and I have to disagree with people who say that women aren't his target audience. Me and my girlfriends got the biggest kick out of this book and Tucker and his friends. I didn't pay anything for the book but I don't think I'd be upset if I had. He has a great sense of humor which goes a long way with me and I love that he speaks his mind...whenever and wherever. I suppose people that bite their tongue a lot, along with women like the ones he's had many encounters with wouldn't so much enjoy it but I certainly did! : ) The chapters are short so it makes the book go a little faster and the fact that you just have to get to the end of each particular story make for a fast read. If you're not the easily offended type and value humor- however different- give it a try!
I will admit that I did not read the whole book, but it basically is a ramble about this guys sexual prowess(from his standpoint) and his total waste of time life. I found this book to be demeaning to women and a waste of my time
Funny in parts, but several of the anecdotes were repeated in later stories. The repetitiveness was a little boring. This book is mostly about sex, with a little booze thrown in. If I had opened the book to middle to read it (instead of the first few pages) I would not have bought it. I think the target audience for this book is males, age 18-29. Also a good book for girls who date like men.
If you don't want to wait in line for it on PBS, or buy it yourself, you can always go to www.tuckermax.com and read practically all of the anecdotes there.
THIS BOOK WAS A WASTE OF MONEY! Especially since you can read it on his website!
I'm probably going to hell for enjoying this book! Rude, crude, obnoxious, totally inappropriate and in your face, but told with such earnest and humor I couldn't help but laugh my ass off. I have a very large ass to match the rest of my large luscious self, and yet I almost wet myself reading the fat chick story. This book is a flipping riot, but only if you can handle descriptive twisted sexual acts, vomit, poop, STD's, and a very healthy dose of drunken people, mainly the author. Enjoy!
I thought this book was entertaining to say the least, and it made me keep wanting to read late into the night. I am not a prude or anything close to it, but some of the things he wrote in the book made me cringe. Tucker Max is every girls worst nightmare in a man, and I think that's what also makes the book more appealing, at least to me. I am looking forward to his second book, Asshole's Finish First.
I, too, hope they serve beer in hell. I bought this hoping it would be different stories than are on his website (most are readable for free at tuckermax.com), but wasn't disappointed. Yeah, he's a drunk, egomaniacal, misogynistic a-hole, but he's also smart, funny, and unapologetic about it. I laughed until I cried at some parts, but mostly because I've been there. He's not "extreme" for anyone who was ever a scenester or in a frat, but he's certainly a lot more obnoxious. Most definitely not for everyone, but some of the most entertaining people are an acquired taste. I put the book down wanting to go have a beer with him.
Warning, this book is not for the faint of heart or stomach! If you can get past the descriptive details of vomiting and sexual exploits, this book is quite entertaining. Tucker Max is every parent's nightmare of what their son might turn out to be or what their daughter might date. Although Max seems to revel in his exploitation of women and his extreme party animal lifestyle, there are times when he is honest with himself and the reader and admits his lifestyle is sad and lonely. This book is sometimes hilarious, sometimes disturbing, often a little bit of both.
A great book if the subject matter doesn't faze you. Massive amounts of profanity, debauchery and humor. Tucker Max has sufficient writing skill to continue making you laugh each page, but some of the stories are so insanely ridiculous and borderline impossible that one wonders if this is truly a work of non-fiction.
I'm still slightly in shock after reading this book. While I definitely laughed out loud at the ridiculous and albeit insane antics of Tucker Max, I also wanted to throw up after reading most of the stories. Do not read this book if you have any sort of prudish tendencies! It is exceptionally graphic in a sexual manner but if you appreciate good potty humor and can handle reading the sexcapades of a drunken college kid, then you will enjoy this book.
You don't have to read past the first story, there all pretty much the same. I love a good tale of drunken debauchery as much as anyone, but this was just vile and disgusting. This guy is a misogynist and on top of that a terrible writer.
It made me laugh a few times, but after a while all the stories are almost the same, just and idiot getting drunk and the consequences after that, always ending at some girl's apartment etc, etc.
Only in America a book like this reach the New York Times Bestseller list!!!
It make wonder how this kind of guys graduate and get scholarships from good colleges, when all they do during their college years is to get drunk...... also portrays all women like retarded and stupid inferior individuals.
I'm glad I just paid a couple dollars to get this book, and now it goes back into the system.
This book is funny but also gives a inside view of how demeaning some guys can be. I am copying a page out of it where he lectures girls that a man will only treat you as you insist on being treated. Every insecure girl of dating age should read this book so they can believe that there are guys out there like Tucker Max everywhere. I am going to give that page to my daughter to warn her when she is 16. I wish I had had a warning as a teen. Hopefully he became a nice person or has 10 daughters now as punishment.
I bought this book at the airport. I was expecting some pretty raunchy but hilarious stories. I got bored with the book pretty quickly. The first story is great, but after that it gets pretty predictable.
I did not read this book straight through. I skipped around, but I believe that I ended up reading all of the stories. I'm an open minded person with a different sense of humor so I was quite amused by this book. I'm just glad nothing like what these stories talk about has ever happened to me.
I recommend this book to anyone with an open mind, an unusual sense of humor, and who is not grossed out easily.
Since I started reading this book, I have talked about it to anyone who will listen. It was just so shocking! All the stories in the book are supposedly true accounts of Tucker Max's hedonistic adventures. I just can't believe there are guys like this out there! But at least he admits what he is.
The stories are completely disgusting but also completely hilarious. He is a jerk. He is a drunk. He is a male whore. But he is also funny- his one redeeming quality.
He has no filter and is very mean to girls. He doesn't just âlove em and leave emâ he emotionally abuses them and uses them until they finally wake up and smell the nasty in this guy. I have no idea why any self-respecting girl would put up with him. But I guess there are a lot of girls out there who have no self-respect since he brags that his ânumberâ is well into the triple digits.
His writing is actually pretty good though. The stories flow really well and he surprising has a pretty good vocabulary. The other âcharactersâ in the book are pretty well developed. So as a writer, I give him props. It's just that the content of the stories will leave you in complete shock with your mouth hanging wide open for hours.
This is very much a âguyâ book, but for girls it will probably be like a car wreckâ¦I just couldn't look away. I was obsessed with it and finished it in less than a week.
I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars because I loved reading it.
But I give Tucker Max a negative 2 star rating as a human being.
Keep the funny, but loose the meanness and get some morals dude.
Hilarious read! I laughed so hard on some of the stories I actually had to stop reading to regain my breath. He pulls no punches about himself or his actions, all of which are derogatory towards women, but I knew this when I began the book so it didn't offend me. If that does offend you steer clear of this one!
One of the funniest books I have EVER read. If you get offended easily, not the book for you. If you find crass, obnoxious "boy humor" funny, then you'l will laugh out loud at this book. He talks all about his sexual escapades, his drunken stupors, etc, but it is SO funny. At least I found it to be. If you have kind of a gross sense of humor and don't get grossed out easily, you like this book! Don't say I didn't warn ya!
I was kind of upset about this book. I figured it would have been a lot better, but instead it was kind of boring. It had a few parts that were pretty funny, but besides that it was kind of lame. He is a big jerk, but also a complete loser too.
