'What would Jesus do?' More like, 'What would Tucker Max Do'

After reading Tucker Max¿s background as a former Univeristy of Chicago student who had moved onto Duke Law School, I thought I had a general idea about what this book would comprise of. After reading only two lines, that idea was shattered. Tucker Max is a 33-year-old lawyer who hates law and loves having sex and getting drunk. In fact, I¿m pretty sure he likes doing both at the same time. Max told stories of crashing sorority parties, sleeping with woman all around Vegas, trying new, awkward sexual experiences with rich girls from South Florida, all the way to running away from a clan of hillbillies who were about to kill him and his friends in North Carolina. Before picking up this book I saw books as a boring, imageless way to hear a story. Tucker Max turned that around for me. For being the vile, offensive person that he is, Tucker¿s grammar and sentence structure painted a picture in my mind that I am still not quite sure I wanted to see. I laughed out loud so hard and so many times while reading that I¿m pretty sure I have some kind of minor lung and diaphragm damage. Although Max is not the kind of guy I want my sister to date, he does teach two very important lessons. The first lesson is to always live life to the fullest because you only live once. When you see the opportunity to have a fun time, even if it might land you waking up in bed with a fat chick, take it. The second lesson is also pretty simple if you love having sex, being a drunkard, and hate wearing a tie, do not become a lawyer. Tucker Max, I raise my glass to you. Thank you for the laughs, the abdominal pain, the new outlook on my life, and the guidance that as I grow up and learn wrong from right, that I never become anything remotely close to you. If I ever met Tucker Max in real life, he would definitely be invited him to my bachelor party and my wedding. But after that, I would never want to see him again because he would probably sleep with my wife, wake up in the morning and not remember a damn thing.

Great start, got tired quickly

A big WOW for shameless debauchery from a raging egomaniac. It's like bungee-jumping into the mosh pit at a fraternity grain party. I'm a girl who liked parts of the Tucker book, so this is sort of a mixed review. The first story I read was the Tucker tries b*tt sex one...
A big WOW for shameless debauchery from a raging egomaniac. It's like bungee-jumping into the mosh pit at a fraternity grain party. I'm a girl who liked parts of the Tucker book, so this is sort of a mixed review. The first story I read was the Tucker tries b*tt sex one. I nearly peed myself it was so funny. For shock value and out of control laughs, you could stop after that story and be satisfied. (It turns out I should have stopped).

The next story I read was pretty funny. The next brought a few chuckles, and by the fourth I was bored. Vomit and poopy pants is only outrageous once; not every story. It seems pretty obvious that he decided early on to "never let the truth get in the way of a good story".

At that point I switched gears and realized the true entertainment value; laughing at Tucker's misplaced ego, lame debacles and feeble attempts at writing. And since they're all embellished versions of similar stories, you get to guess the timing and outcome of the events and feel proud of your highly tuned prophetic skills. This gem of a discovery had me howling big-time.

Honestly, some of these stories my 17 yr. old brother would consider too pathetic to repeat. Tucker et al flake out, embarrass themselves, explode body fluids, and the outcome is lame. By contrast, Tucker brags like these are conquests from a billionaire gladiator. I've never known someone so egotistical they don't even realize it when they were made to look like a fool.

I've met some successful adrenaline junkies in my short life whose stories ARE mind-blowing; I've been involved in some of their debacles and am astonished at what they get away with. Tucker's stories for the most part would make an embarrassing footnote of losers seen fumbling around in the background.

Don't get me wrong; if you're a freshman and led a sheltered life...if you like comedy and can overcome the short-bus, Darwin candidate frat-i-tude, some of these stories will have you rolling.

If you've matured beyond Spring Break and prefer well written tales, there's better options for drunken philandering memoirs. Hunter Thompson paved the way with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Also make sure you get Brett Tate's hilarious photo-documentary about insane wealthy gangsters living the dream;

High Heels and Dirty Deals - Globetrotting Tales of Debauchery from a Binge-drinking Nymphomaniac.
