About the Author

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is one of the stars of the hit MTV reality show Jersey Shore. Since he first appeared on the show in December 2009, Sorrentino has fist-pumped his way into the pop culture consciousness by way of his outlandish antics and penchant for tanning beds, hair products, gym time, and displaying his abdominal muscles. He has just released his first workout DVD that focuses on developing your abs. He lives, works out, and tans in New Jersey.

Format: Paperback
This book was given to me as I was recovering from "the accident" and it was just the book I needed at the time. It's simplistic writing style combined with its elementary vocabulary made it one of the few books I could read and comprehend, and the fun pictures made all the more enjoyable, much like a children's book. In addition, given that I can no longer hope for a real career doing anything of value in this world, the book gave me hope, as it not only taught me the techniques to get women to lower their standards enough for me to have relations with them, but seeing the author's success despite his obvious impairments and lack of real life skills has modeled that there are ways I can succeed despite my limitations from "the accident."

Ok, I haven't finished this book, but it's funny as hell thus far. But not for the obvious reason.

It was either A) Written by The Situation and he has an amazing sense of humor about himself (doubtful) or 2) (more likely) was written by a hilarious ghostwriter who is totally oozing mockery all over this thing. In fact, it reads like it was written by an author from Cracked.com. That's my theory.

Take this book as a satirical ode to the stupidity of Jersey Shore and you'll enjoy it.

Format: Paperback
The art of literature has been castrated without anesthesia by this sad, laughable piece of, well, I'd call it writing, but that just doesn't seem fair to real, actual, accomplished writers. While there are many things that bother me about the whole Jersey trend, this is by far the most damning. I often wonder if this "situation" guy even slightly realizes what a joke he is to society. Now, I understand that 98% of those who hail from the Garden state are living under the false pretention that those of us not from there have some sort of bent admiration for them. However, this could not be further from the truth. In essence, the public's fascination with Jersey is tantamount to an infant's fascination with a water balloon; it's slightly entertaining, easily manipulated, and we can't help but want to drop it off a large building to see what happens. As an author myself, it sickens me to think that I am now in the professional company of this sack lunch with abs. Even more concerning (provided that we as a society have not risen up to burn all remaining copies), fifty years from now, it is thoughtless mind spew like this that will serve as a reflection of the generation that still had a shred of editorial integrity. If you want to know the real situation, I'll give it to you: Apparently, any ass-clown with gelled hair, a tan, and a 30 word vocabulary can make it in America, provided there are still agenda-driven producers who are willing to sell their soul at the expense of exploitation. This book personifies so much of what is wrong with our country, and I honestly feel less intelligent having read it.

Format: Paperback
I flipped through this book at Borders and managed to read quite a bit...it's a short read. I was shocked. I heard about Jersey Shore because my 18 year old son likes it and he was telling me about "gym, tan, laundry"...so when I saw it I picked it up. Wow. This guy is about as egotistical and shallow as they come. It scares me that these are the kinds of people who are influencing our young people. Referring to "ugly" women as "grenades", taking multiple women home and "pounding it out" in the bedroom then trying to get rid of them because you're tired...and what to do when a woman actually says "I love you"...it's a very pathetic existence. In the real world people get hurt when they're living this kind of a lifestyle because it has something called consequences. Sexually transmitted diseases run rampant, unplanned pregnancys happen and then you're dealing with a child or an abortion, and hearts are broken when women are used and treated as objects to be enjoyed then discarded by creeps like this guy, not to mention the eventual consequences of his own shallow values and existence.

Some might enjoy this as a light, entertaining read but I take this stuff seriously. Any parent with a son or daughter who looks up to people who choose this kind of existence would. A successful, productive, fulfilled, joyful, peaceful, and truly happy life cannot be found through such an existence. I predict that this guy will find himself with many regrets someday when he relizes how he's squandered his life away.

Not worth purchasing, nor knowing about the Situation. I bought the book for my son (upon his request) and should not have.

First I should be honest. I didn't buy the book to read but hoped that with good sales the Sitch could afford the rest of his shirt for the cover and future covers. I assumed like many he could afford a whole shirt at a time. I felt I could only give the book two stars until the rest of the shirt is returned to the cover or I decide to read it.
