About the Author
Dan Ryckert is a senior associate editor at Game Informer. He has set two Guinness World Records, he posts dumb things on Twitter (@danryckert), and he once threw up because he put three packets of cheese powder into one box worth of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese noodles. He dislikes most books that don’t involve Air Force Gator. This is his second book, and he wrote it so he can make more money and afford to go to WrestleMania.

Some baseball guy wrote some kind of crap as well.
Dan Ryckert has taken the world by storm by actually hacking into the universe and granting himself the powers of every great writer ever born. This is beyond accidentally mistaking the words "Pro Skater" for something entirely different.
This is Air Force Gator.
Tom Clancy soon followed. I found his home address listed in his local white pages, then rented a small motel room a few blocks away. I learned his routine and approached him at a neighborhood drug store. He told me about his process, his inspirations, and made for a sumptuous stew with carrots and potatos.
After a failed home invasion, I settled for making a key lime pie out of JD Salinger's mailbox. It as tasty--a bit rich--but I never felt like i had digested greatness, as I had with King and Clancy, nor as I would later with Michael Chabon, out of whom I made a lovely tenderloin. Not even mailing the feces from that dinner in a Macy's box to the public library slaked my desire to connect with the overmind.
Hopefully Mr. Ryckert will understand his role in this and acquiesce. Or perhaps be a mench and have a loved one prepare him in time for my arrival, either as a handsome smoked briscuit, or maybe a three-tiered cake. In any event, I will eat him.
I have read the original Air Force Gator, and at the time I thought that novel would be Mr. Ryckert's magnum opus. I can not fully exclaim how wrong I was. Air Force Gator 2 has surpassed the original in every conceivable manner, and in every manner that I can not conceive at this moment.
This work of art exceeds all expectations placed on it, and finds ways to add meaning to each word of its title. If you thought you understood what the words "air", "force", "gator", and "two" mean, you will find these words redefined and truly lived in this novel. And the word play in the title following the colon, "Scales of Justice" speaks to such depths of the human experience, as well as navigating the delicate sociopolitical issues facing our nation currently, as well as the issues to come.
The common colloquialism "Don't judge a book by its cover" is both true and untrue of this book. You get everything you would expect from this work's cover, as well as so much more than what you could have ever thought possible in any work of art created by man, written or otherwise.
In a society where so many have lost their way, Air Force Gator is a beacon of proper morality, extolling the virtues of eating chicken without having to bother with bones. He understands that one can enjoy delicious chicken without compromising convenience and ease of eating. Air Force Gator gives us an ideal to aspire to: a world where we can all have hot stripper girlfriends, fly airplanes shaped like our own heads, and no longer have to accept bones in our food.
So the next time you're ordering some wings, think to yourself: "What would Air Force Gator do?" Then make the right choice. Choose boneless.
Oh, and the book's alright too.
Then I read Air Force Gator. It's poetic wisdom that Dan Ryckert provided guided me through the my angsty years. I began to realize that I am not much different than an Air Force Gator, I'm also misunderstood and wanting to prove that I am a great American.
The sequel is rest assured, just as good. Very rarely are books as well written and thought provoking as this one is. The sentences flow so naturally, it's no wonder Dan is considered one of the best journalists on the planet right now. I cannot recommend this book and it's predecessor enough.
