    Overall... poor

    Jason Ellis drank a lot and smoked a lot of weed. He also did a lot of drugs, especially cocaine. His parents did a crap job, yet he still idolized his father. He used to ride a skateboard, now has a radio show and got into fighting. I just summed up the 200 pages I read. Nothing great, very repetitive. I actually like his radio show, but this book does not endear him to me, at all. Wish I didn't read it.

    Okay

    As a female listener i was interested in some jason background. It was interesting, sad, the story order was a little choppy to follow the timeles. Too many hookers.

    Even if you have no idea who Jason Ellis is, this is a great read!

    I have been listening to Ellis on Sirius/XM since the begining of the show. I picked up the book mainly becaus I am a listener.

    I have to say I was really supprised. The stories are great, its well written and fan of the show or not there is something in here that will make you laugh.

    Red Dragons!

    Good book

    If you are a fan of Jason Ellis or skateboarding, you should consider reading this book. It is the very honest tale of a troubled man reaching fame after years of drug abuse, bad relationships, and failure. Jason Ellis never gave up no matter what life threw at him.
    I do not recommend this book for anyone under the age of sixteen.

    Awesome Book

    Great book, couldn't stop reading once I started..I'm also a fan of the show (which is on Sirius radio, Faction 41) the best thing about the book is its a true story about a man who grew up hard, and chased his dream, and ended up getting even more than that..trying to get my fiancé to read it, I thought it was that good!! Red Dragons!!!

    Memoirs & biographies are my favorite books to read & Ja

    Memoirs & biographies are my favorite books to read & Jason Ellis' was hard to put down! I listen to his radio show when I can, so of course I loved I'm Awesome, but if you have a weak constitution or low tolerance for reckless (but entertaining) behavior, this might not be a book you'll enjoy.
