Now, don't get me wrong, I love all of the clever wit and aggressive writing styles. Who cares if VICE doesn't bother editing for even near-proper grammar?

The sex and rock & roll articles are quite readable, though most of the drug information provided is pure urban legend trash.

Note: condoning the use of anti-depressants in high quantity for recreational effect has got to be the most reckless advice I've ever read. For the sake of everyone's personal safety, DO NOT TAKE VICE'S DRUG ARTICLES SERIOUSLY!

The gift that keeps on giving -- all the best words for this little charmer are Amazon-illegal, but parts seriously make you wonder if you even knew how to kiss right/think sharp before it. Hip without crowding anyone out and funnier than you'd expect. Also, the intro/story of VICE's founding is pretty touching. Get it (on).

I never read this magazine because I mistook it for puerile fare like Maxim. But, judging by this fine book of collections and smart, intelligent writing, it appears that I was mistaken.
The bad first: this book can come off badly with some roll-your-eyes quality immature humor. Some of the sex content *does* seem to come off like some cheesy Maxim rubbish.
Now, on to the good. This is good stuff, a wonderfully irreverent take on modern urban culture, which of course, includes plenty of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Seeing as the magazine started in Montreal, it's nice to get some views into this woefully overlooked metropolis...

Format: Paperback
"the vice guide to sex and drugs and rock and roll" is more of an introduction to, well, the vices in life. Most of the information is half assed, and its dripping with sarcasm on most of the important aspects of the book. however, its an enlightening read and the "government high" and "fashion do's and dont's" are perhaps the reason this book is always open near my toilet

I was already cringing/dying of laughter before I even got to the actual first chapter. The foreword alone had one of the funniest sexual vignettes I've ever read. Oh far far you've come, Mr. Smith!

Anyone who likes Vice's unique voice will enjoy this, even if the content is dated. I planned for it to be a "bathroom book," but it ended up on the coffee table and everyone who visits seems to strike gold on any random page they open to.

AS ALWAYS, VICE BRINGS IT. I ALREADY HAD THIS, BUT LOST IT IN A MOVE SOMEWHERE, SO I BOUGHT IT AGAIN BECAUSE ONE MUST OWN ALL OF VICE'S BOOKS (INCLUDING THE DO'S AND DON'T'S BOOKS).
