Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"Living Loaded isn't just a biographical account of (Dunn's) debaucherous adventures with a heavy focus on drinking, but also a how-to book." --LA Weekly
"Buy up this memoir (featuring tales of hanging out with adult film stars and global drinking)... to honor a guy known as 'the imbiber,' but only because he was too old to go with 'I'm-Bieber.'" --Thrillist
"This outrageous and hilarious recount of Dunn's life encompasses lessons learned from a lifetime of observing drinking cultures... a magnified view of how a seemingly dream profession might have its torturous pitfalls." --BroBible.com
'Lots of new books have been coming out lately by offbeat celebs with cult followings, like Living Loaded by Playboy columnist Dan Dunn... find out when a signing is happening, and go." --Cosmopolitan
Dunn's style, like his subject matter, is prototypical Playboy; brash, funny, unapologetically masculine, sex-obsessed, packed with wordplay and self-referential asides…. It was written to be a little informative and a lot of fun, and it succeeds on both counts. In an age when exercise and a low-fat diet has been conflated with virtue, it's refreshing to read about some good, old-fashioned, unabashedly drunken high-jinks
"Break out the highballs– Playboy.com’s boozer columnist, Dan “the Imbiber” Dunn, has written a second book worth perusing over a couple rounds." - LA Magazine
"You’ll find Dan “The Imbiber” Dunn’s new book, Living Loaded, to be a profound meditation on the finer points of... drinking." -- Thrillist
"Grab a drink, and make it a double.... Living Loaded takes up where his previosu book, Nobody Likes a Quitter (and other reasons to avoid rehab) left off - on a barstool in one of the planet's zillion drinking establishments. Dunn's mission is to experience the absolute hell out of them all, or get thrown out trying. He's even created a taxonomy of "barchetypes to help structure his often foul mouthed, always hilarious, and sometimes touching quest." - Tasting Panel Magazine.
"There was once a great tradition of smart, funny writers who told drinking stories: WC Fields, Kingsley Amis. They got replaced by self-pitying AA-memoirs. I'm so glad I got to read Dan Dunn's smart, funny, drinking stories book and not his next book, which will undoubtedly be a self-pitying AA memoir."
-Joel Stein, Time Magazine
"Living Loaded is a rip-roaring funny and sometimes sad bender of a book. Living up to his reputation as his generation's best outlaw journalist, Dan Dunn flirts with doom and wins. A flat-out carousing home-run."
-Douglas Brinkley, NY Times Bestselling author of The Wilderness Warrior and The Reagan Diaries
"Dan Dunn is the only person I know whose life would fall apart if he stopped drinking. For the time being, he will remain a personal hero to most American men and the conductor of my vicarious life."
- Rob McElhenney, creator and star, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"
“Dan Dunn's writing is like kick-ass, balls to the wall rock n roll cranked to ear-bleed levels -- makes you feel great and really pisses off the neighbors. I can drink to that!”
--Sammy Hagar, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Cabo Wabo Tequila Founder
"A cocktail of hilarious encounters and adventures. Dan should have &*#@ed me when he had the chance."
-- Savanna Samson, adult film superstar
"Dan Dunn’s time studying at the feet of the master and mentor Hunter S Thompson could best be described as 'one cheek on the bar stool and one foot on the floor.'
His latest handbook 'Living Loaded,' celebrates his booze scribe lifestyle in liquorishous detail. I love it !"
- John Oates, of the rock and soul duo Hall & Oates
"This tome hits you like a shot of Jäger on an empty stomach. Here is a man living life the way it ought to be lived."
- Mark Steines, host, Entertainment Tonight
"Dan Dunn lives a life most people fantasize about. True degeneracy with panache. This book is an essential primer for the joys of the drinking life."
- Jonathan Goldsmith, actor, The Most Interesting Man in the World
"Profoundly profane, profanely profound, LIVING LOADED will win your heart, seize your liver and probably steal your wallet. But you’ll forgive it, because Dan Dunn is the best – and almost certainly the worst – drinking companion you’ll ever have: Charming, hilarious and always, it seems, on the brink of a barfight."
-Steve Rushin, author, the Pint Man
Top Customer Reviews
It's probably along the lines of "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell".
I'll be passing the book along to my fellow drinking buddies.
Sprinkle in some fantastic original cocktail recipes from renowned bartenders paired with each chapter, and you've got a bonus reference for when you're entertaining thirsty guests or just want to mix things up when you're home alone and bored. Great for anyone who enjoys an adult beverage now and then, or for anyone who's looking to live vicariously through someone who knows how to do it well. And Dan Dunn does.

The feminist in me finds Dunn slightly repulsive at times. But at the heart if it, he's plain hysterical.Published 16 months ago by Julian Vast
To call this the finest book in all the land would be an insult. It dominates the sea, sky, and select parts of space as well.Published 23 months ago by Flint Skinny
Being a bartender I can relate to many of the stories (without the celebs). the book will make you laugh from page 1 to the end and it also gives you some great cocktails! Read morePublished on October 6, 2013 by Joe Parkhurst
See, here's the thing. This is a great book, but better is the experience of getting positively pie-eyed on a drinking binge with Dunn. Read morePublished on May 17, 2012 by Bob Higgins
