Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With just a cold beer in his hand and a goofy grin on his face, recently-dumped Jake Timberlake is a lovable loser trying to move on with his life one misadventure at a time.

It doesn't matter where he goes or what he does, Jake never fails to cause trouble. Jake's adventures take him all over the country in search of cheap beer, big fun and loose women. He winds up sleeping in his truck in Panama City, Florida on a one-man Spring Break. He finds himself drenched in urine and wandering the streets of Savannah, Georgia on St. Patrick's Day. The hits just keep on coming but Jake takes it all in stride; that's exactly the way he likes it. Along the way, Jake learns his most important lesson: Just because everyone else is in a hurry to settle down doesn't mean he has to be-- he's having way too much fun.

About the Author

Unless you've been living in a cave for the last 24 years, you have probably already heard of Jake Timberlake. Jake is generally considered to be the greatest drinker-with-a-writing-habit since Ernest Hemingway. Jake was born nearly 25 years ago in the infirmary of a luxury cruise liner. His parents were attending the 8th annual Booze Cruise for Breast Cancer when Jake made his early arrival into the world. Ironically, he had been conceived 8 months and 24 days prior on the 12th annual Bahamian Beer Boat Bonanza for the Big Brother Foundation. Jake's parents raised him in the loving home that they shared with a group of fraternity brothers from the local college. Jake's mom cooked and cleaned for the fraternity and in exchange the brothers helped raise sweet baby Jake. Consequently, Jake learned about true manliness from a very early age. While the Delta Xi brothers never actually gave Jake beer out of respect for the Timberlake family's values, they did teach him the art of the Root-beer Bong and how to shotgun a carton of milk. At the tender age of 18, Jake bid his parents and his surrogate brothers a tearful goodbye and left to attend college in the fall of 2001. Jake set out to become his own man, and leave his mark on the world. Jake became a writer early in his college career. After taking a job as a weekly opinion columnist at the university's newspaper, Jake penned such works of genius as "Beer Didn't Make Me Go Blind," and "How Come Only Fat Girls Like Me?" His opinion column was soon syndicated on dorm room walls across campus, and Jake became an over-night celebrity amongst the student body. In 2007, with help of his best friend Buddy, Jake founded Jackass Books and began work on his first memoir.

Jake's adventures, while not generally advisable, are always entertaining. Sometimes you'll laugh with Jake, sometimes you'll laugh at him, and sometimes you'll just cringe. Even if you don't approve of his party lifestyle or you can't see any logical person getting themselves into the situations he experiences, the search for happiness is a universal theme that relates to us all. Most of our searches don't involve as much sleeping in cars and definitely don't involve having a cigarette put out on our neck, but Jake follows his own path. If nothing else, this book will give you something to read while you're on the toilet.

This is one of those books that makes me wish I lived my life differently. Maybe not quite as crazy as Jake, but just crazy enough to have some stories that would compare even slightly with his adventures. Everyone has friends that are like Jake, and everyone (that I know) has thought about doing the things that he has done, so why not read the book and try to convince yourself to do them? Even if you don't ever want to act crazy, this is a highly entertaining book with stories that aren't so stupid that they're unbelievable (TUCKER MAX). I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys good storytelling and laughing.
