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.

Honestly, it seemed as if she took the contents of her blog and made it into a book. I did find myself wanting to start cooking during each chapter but that was about it. A sweet and simple read.
