Tucker Max. Oh, boy. Tucker Max.
Tucker Max is the guy who walks into a bar, and it immediately gets louder and everyone is suddenly having a great time. Tucker Max is the guy who always has a story to tell, and a story everyone wants to hear. Tucker Max is the guy who has no fear, enough money to do pretty much anything he wants, and a group of friends willing to go along for the ride. Tucker Max started a blog, a place for him to tell his stories to anyone who wanted to hear them. Tucker Max turned his blog into this book.
The book is a series of stories. The first few are hilarious, lewd, and shocking. By the time I was half way through the book, I realized that Tucker Max made a very good living on gross exaggeration. Still, exaggerating or not, a lot of his stories are verified by his posse of friends, and, hyperbole aside, there is some seriously funny shit in this book.
If you're looking for a good laugh, a glimpse into what guys really think, or something for the man in your life to read, go for it. BE WARNED: this is not for the easily offended, or for the extremely gullible.
