Save your time and money,
This review is from: 101 Things to Do Before You Die (Paperback)
I picked up this book (fortunately from the library), hoping for some thoughts on planning significant events that would enrich my life. Instead, I got suggestions like sneaking out of a restaurant without paying (p 45), having sex in a church (p 71), or getting arrested (p 23). Terrific.
There are enough idiots in the world already without Richard Horne minting more of them. If you're looking for exciting, creative ways to ruin your life, get the DVD of _Animal House_ instead of this book. Its just as rude, but much, much more fun.

I was about to post the same thing, but your review said it all.

I've seen blogs where people attempt to complete this list. One thing I noticed, is that in many cases they replace items they morally object to with items they feel are just as difficult and worthy.
Or to put it another way, the book is meant to be a guideline, not a set of 101 commands. Or at least on the blogs I saw, people decided to do that instead of following the list verbatum.

I saw the "get arrested" one and immediately thought "great, a chance to get deported or shot."
