Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell and Assholes Finish First delivers a new collection of thirty 100% true, 100% exclusive stories of comically perverse excess.

Another installment in Tucker Max’s series of stories about his drunken debauchery and ridiculous antics. What began as a simple sentence on an obscure website, “My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole,” and developed into two infamously genre-defining books, I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and Assholes Finish First, ends here.

But as you should expect from Tucker by now, he is going out with a bang—literally and figuratively. In this book, you’ll learn:

* How to live and work in Cancun, while still enrolled in Law School

* Why Halloween is really awesome

* How to subtly torture a highstrung roommate until he explodes with furious anger over a misplaced condiment

* What really happened when a dirty pageant girl tried to sue Tucker because he told the truth

* Why you should never accept a homemade treat from a hippie with a van

As we’ve come to learn from Tucker, assholes do finish first...but everything comes with a price.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Expensively educated child-of-privilege-turned-professional-asshole Max (Assholes Finish First, 2011, etc.) ends his "fratire" series with another memoir full of binge drinking, upchucking and general unhinged misanthropy. Here the author cuddles up next to blowhard Bill O'Reilly, crackpot psychologists, Hollywood gossips and psychotic Army snipers. There are also plenty of repetitious barhopping stories involving Max and the angry gynophobes he hangs with, all out for some good old-fashioned recreational hate sex (or often just hate, period) with clueless sorority-type chicks. The Tucker Max formula for success? He interacts with people who have the rare disability of being even more moronic than he is--and so-called hilarity ensues. Beyond the predictable mouthing off about his "awesome" life, in this latest book we also get sections featuring Max's boring "sexting" transcripts, a self-righteous diatribe against the mother of Miss Vermont (who sued him for libel), some routine white-trash strip-club experiences and a proud recollection of the time he beat up a frail European guy. There's also a fond remembrance of his homosocial maritime bromance with one of the macho crab fisherman of Deadliest Catch fame: Although he vomited from seasickness during much of his Alaskan fishing expedition, he seemed to be much more at ease with the rough boys on the Time Bandit than with the unfortunate females he hits on in yuppie bars. We also learn some further startling new information about the author--he likes Southern rap and hates the French! Although there's no telling how much honesty there is behind any of Max's chauvinist bluster, undoubtedly the most believable statement in the book comes in the penultimate chapter, where he reveals the fact that he has no girlfriend or wife. Shocking. The 18-year-old fraternity pledge's guide to life.

The stories are getting old, I think he's lost his touch.

I personally found this to be the best of the Tucker Max series (I have yet to begin Sloppy Seconds). You can tell that Tucker enjoys his memories, but that the stories he's told don't define him. I could see an older, more mature Tucker in the story telling and I really enjoyed the stories he had to tell. I'm very excited to see what types of books he has to offer in the future. He's a talented writer who has more to offer than his humorous stories.

He is wayyy too self- absorbed

Tucker Max's bread and butter are his outrageous tales, but his aged voice definitely comes through in his final installment. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel but it was rather melancholy albeit understandable and self aware, to see him move on from his regailing readers with his antics.

Its funny, but I've read all of his other books and he keeps telling stories that I've already read before in his past books, in his new one. If you haven't read any of his stuff, then definitely read this one.

As much as im sure i will greatly enjoy this book i have yet to read it, none of text or pages show up on my nook. I have no explination for this and it greatly angers me that i pay for something and have it not work. I just want to read my book. Has this happened to anybody?

At the end of "Hilarity Ensues" Tucker Max informs us that this is the third and final volume of his trilogy devoted to fratire. This is probably for the best. The stories in "Hilarity Ensues" seemed very fimiliar as though they were rehashed from his two earlier volumes. Because I think Max is a surprisingly talented writer, it will be interesting to see what his future efforts produce.
