I've read the first 3 books of this series and would am looking forward to the coming book he states he is working on, on his website.
Chris Pascale
This entire book is nothing but a few good stories stuffed with garbage as filler.

I'll give him this: Tucker entertains. His stories are for the most part well written, and his third book is a fun and easy, albeit frivolous read. As usual, a good chunk of the book is just emails to and from his friends, some dating back years. That, coupled with multiple pages dedicated to his "sexting" with his core fan base, i.e. immature and insecure teenage girls, sort of undermines his claim of being a prolific writer.

Tucker is at his best when he writes about his friends' various idiosyncrasies. The chapter about his friend Hate was by far the funniest, containing some exemplary wit.

He is absolutely at his worst when he gives life advice. The "wisdom" he imparts is shallow, hackneyed, and hardly conducive to forming good character. At one point in the book, he suggests that kids shouldn't listen to anything their parents say, that they should just follow their own rules and the hell with the norm. So, when your dad preaches the importance of virtues such as loyalty, honor, fortitude, and honesty, just ignore the old man. Very rebellious, Tucker! This is painfully cliched and unenlightened advice.

By far the most disturbing chapter is on Miss Vermont.

It reveals a vindictive, pathologically narcissistic, and petty side of Tucker. He takes extreme pride in destroying a young, innocent girl for absolutely no good reason. He comes off as border-line sadistic in challenging Miss Vermont to write her version of events. Miss Vermont didn't want stories about her private sexual encounters published on the internet (who would?), yet Tucker takes delight in revealing intimate details about their relationship. Worse, he hides under the first amendment to justify his actions.

Before I say much about this book, I must say that I loved the first two books Tucker Max wrote. The first book had great content and good writing, and the second book followed up with great content AND great writing. In this third book, the writing is still great, but Tucker Max is running out of content and at times it seems that he is aware of it himself.

In one instance (a story titled "The TMZ Debacle") Tucker Max even says that normally he would not have deemed the story worth telling, but because TMZ interviewed him about it, he is doing it anyway. He tells a Halloween story and mentions that there is a better Halloween story in his second book the title of which Amazon will not let me spell out. In that same book there is an amazingly funny story about an encounter between him and two ex girlfriends; in this book we get the much less interesting epilogue to that story.

The book spends two pages on a story which can be summed up as: "Guys go to look at wild horses. One guy is bit in the hand by a horse". Another two pages are spent on a story which is basically "This one guy may or may not have been gay".

The stories about his friend Hate are kind of funny, but mostly they can be summed up as "Hate got angry, Tucker Max and Credit laughed". The Cancun stories started out really good, but they sounded surprisingly preachy at times when Tucker Max recounts events that he was not even present for.

And then there is the sexting... let me just say that it gets old really fast.

He is a great writer and I loved his first two books, but in this book his is clearly running out of stuff to write about. I cannot imagine what was left for the fourth book, "Sloppy Seconds", which is supposedly the stuff that was not good enough for this book.

One of my college students gave me a copy of IHTSBIH and I laughed myself silly. (Yes, I am a professor. I maintain discipline but I also try to keep my class amused and entertained while larnin' their lessons) It was one of the funniest books I had ever read. I could not wait to get a copy of the next book and see the movie. Then I read stories from people who worked on the movie who were lied to and generally abused by His Royal Highness. Rudius authors started to disclose that they were getting paid little to nothing while Tucker raked in millions. I read a story about him eating and throwing his empty peanut shells on the floor. I realized this wasn't just an act, but it was the story of a truly miserable man who hated himself very badly and was truly f**** by his awful parents, who raised him to be a feral child posing as a mature, scholarly, young man sowing his wild oats and writing funny stories about them.

Anybody who would start a movie with a scene where his character is encouraging a naive young woman to KILL THE FAT GIRL because FAT GIRLS AREN'T REAL PEOPLE at the bar......well, we all know what happened to that cinematic masterpiece, don't we? Tucker Max won't eat lunch in Hollywood again, I tell you. And the more he pretends he doesn't care, the more he cares so very desperately. But it is too late. How do I know? I went to law school and then moved to California to temp by night and audition by day and yeah I crawled back home and pulled out the Bar books. But I still have friends out there.

Anyway, the book was not funny. It was well written. Tucker can spin a good tale. But they Just Are Not Funny. One small example of humor--Some crab boat fisherman told him that his granny pulled out his rotting teeth with pliers and whiskey.
