The Tucker is back. Like a bad accident you can't look away from. Book one a fresh and funny, raw diary of naïve, self-destructive freshmen overindulging in shameless situations. Great unpredictable bits. Cutting repartee between the motley characters. Penned with minimalist blogger, literary skills. Tales blatantly exaggerated, that reek of snake oil. In a way, the flaws made it even better. The essence of college. Enter the post-college sequel, written by a now mid-30s law grad Tucker. Expectations? Spontaneous tales and laughs from a narcissistic, neurotic adult, with some cash to upgrade his levels of sleaze. Intrigue and twists navigating his next phase in life. Self-discovery. Seasoned writing. Vastly improved comedic delivery. Reality? It took a week to read 20 pages. What happened? The shock value and self-deprecation is gone...replaced with weak, exaggerated penthouse letters for knuckle-dragging virgins with no life experience. He's regressed to puberty. It became a mission to find anything funny. Out of 400 pages, only Tuckerfest and the Midgets strike back brought laughs. The rest? Low rent college blogger scribblings, aggrandizing ordinary events into imaginary Demi-God legends. It reads like a Dumb and Dumber parody of a sociopathic, transparently insecure BS artist, who refers to himself in 3rd person like some Fraternity deity. No dynamics. Flat, one-dimensional characters. We're talking groundbreaking puberty comedy here; liquor, sex, and rebellion; using people as props, and then "insert clichéd insult and gross thing here" for the dreaded, yawning punch lines. I love juvenile humor done right. Farrelly Brothers movies are hilarious. This just falls flat due a lethal combination of weak content, misplaced arrogance to vomit levels, and just frankly...not funny. Think cocky z-list comedian who bombs at the Improv, and mid-set drops the mic and storms off because the crowd is "too stupid to understand the brilliance." Second half of book he pontificates about groupie sex and fame, being a revolutionary "artist"...life's view from the top. Seriously. You're killing us. One can visualize the late night burning oil sessions; those spontaneous tomes flying off the steady quill pen that would leave Hunter Thompson and Hemingway quivering with envy. "I know - I'll make up a story about screwing a fat, one legged, vomiting skank who suddenly gets her period - It will be AWESOME!! Tucker Max is a GOD!!!" The irony of the title, well... Other than the two stories, the entertainment here is the content and author are unintentionally hilarious to laugh at. (Hello, David Brent). For any chance to work, the book calls for a self-deprecating guy laughing at himself and the bizarre situations he gets into....followed by self-discovery, development of character, etc. Miss this one. Get the first book. Recommended debauchery books. The Dirt... by Neil Strauss. Addictive tale traveling on tour with Motley Crue and Ozzy. Insane binging, womanizing and pillaging. High Heels and Dirty Deals...by Brett Tate. Brilliant satirist; a twisted gifted rogue's photodocumentary of an insatiable quest for women and vice. Gritty, hilarious Russian mobsters. Screaming funny observation humor, overindulgence and debauchery to cartoonish levels, coupled with stunning erotic photography.

Why would you buy a book, knowing what it is, then complain and give it a bad review? This is def a man's book. Obscene and vulger, but it doesn't hide tnat from the description. Expect it. Its hilariously offensive.Get over it or dont read it. or do and laugh your ass off.

For thos of you that refer to the author as an "idiot," he is probably smarter than you. He did his undergrad at U Chicago: a school with a 20% acceptance rate and then went to law school at Duke-an exceptional school. I'm not saying I agree with everything he did, but if you are going to insult somebody, do it properly.

I typically like well-written books no matter what the subject and this one is no exception. Tucker is quite funny and a good story-teller. For some reason he's especially funny when he's mocking himself. I definately enjoy reading about his adventures and the people he knows/meets. This book is obviously not for everyone and I can certainly see how A LOT of people would be offended by Tucker Max...but I find him to be pretty hilarious. I usually offer other author/book suggestions but...I'm not quite sure what genre Max falls into. If you're female, Chelsea Handler's books are quite funny.

While he's certainly an egotistical a**hole, he makes no qualms about it. His witty and funny banter regarding his life experiences make the stories come alive as if you were there with him. I loved the Harlem DUI story and thought it wouldn't get any better, but then I started in on the Post-Fame sex stories and I was apparently wrong. Totally a guilty pleasure of mine to read this. I was recently flying and while waiting at baggage claim for my luggage with book in hand, another fan came up and we chatted for a good 20 minutes about the merits of this and the previous book.

If you have any sense of humor and an open mind you will find this book very funny. It is basically the same stuff as his first book except parts are even more obscene and funny. He explains and describes situations and thoughts very well with a funny perspective. Anyone that enjoys the topics of sex, alchohol, and humor will enjoy this book. You will find yourself laughing to yourself very hard to the point of tears. Enjoy!

Some funny parts...mostly just raunchy guy humor. I'm too old for this book. "Sh*t my Dad says" was MUCH better.

Funny not as good as the first book
PiccoultFan More than 1 year ago
I really enjoyed Tucker Max's first book, IHTSBIH; it was fresh and funny. This book made me cringe. He came off as arrogant and entitled and the stories weren't as good as the first. Sure there were a few laughs, but some of the stories just became rambling and boring. It felt like he took every sexual encounter he had and tried to make it a story that was funny or outrageous, when it should be the other way around. It was too forced.

By far the most appalling, offensive, and disgusting book I've ever read by a man who is just as bad, if not far worse. I am hard to offend. I read all kinds of dark, gritty, disturbing, offensive material, but I couldn't stomach this. Tucker Max is genuinely a despicable person, and he has no regard for any other human, and it's sickening. I picked this up because I thought it would be a light amusing read, but all I found was shock that someone could be this grotesque and even worse, that other people would get behind it and enjoy it enough to want to publish it

He just got plain lazy from the first book. This is just pure narcissism at its fullest. IHTSBIH had a funny tone to it, this is just pure stupidity. Nonetheless, Tuckerfest was a fun and interesting story and that is why this book gets an extra star for effort. Although that happens to be one of his most narcissistic stories of them all which is ironic.

Some books/movies just don't deserve a sequel, or trequel. This book sucked. I couldn't even finish it. I regret buying this book.

No reservation, Tucker Max knows how to party. Many who read his books will see an element of themselves, but few will rival Tucker. Fast, rebelliously & abrasive come to mind, Tucker took the phrase “Boogie till ya’ puke” to an excessive level. Defiantly not for the faint of heart or don’t have a coarse sense of humor. I can only imagine what the years of 1975 – 1980 would have been like should Tucker Max had been on the cast of Saturday Night Live.
