5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book indeed, October 26, 2009
This review is from: I'm Having More Fun Than You (Paperback)
The title of this book is what caught my attention, but it was the writing of Aaron Karo that compelled me to buy it. This concise tome offers a small peak into the life of a perpetual bachelor and unapologetic carouser. While I would hesitate to promote Karo as a role model for bachelors, he offers a refreshingly honest and often brutally funny look into a life spent living in the moment and avoiding responsibility.

Whereas there are numerous books out there on how to find that special someone, improve yourself or, let's face it, conform to that narrow vision of how society expects you to be, this book revels in the concept of being independent, unattached and, well, perhaps more than a little selfish. Karo goes into great detail describing the escapades that he and his close group of friends have gotten into over the years. I must say that he captures the dynamic of friendship among men fairly accurately. Sometimes I found myself jealous of Karo's adventures, and sometimes I cringed at his callousness, but ultimately, more often than not, I laughed out loud.

Although I don't necessarily agree with the mindset of 'myself before all others' that Karo portrays, it makes for some fine comedy and a great read. It also serves as a reminder to those of us who remain unattached that there's still a lot of fun to be had in the realm of singledom.
