My wish for 2013: Mr. Sager adapts his work for Kindle readers.
The compilation of essays from Sager's journalism career at GQ, Esquire and Rolling Stone magazines features stories of real people who find themselves in improbable situations and what becomes of them. Love triangles, religious cults, musicians, surfers, politicians, cokeheads, moms, pornos, law enforcement agents and prisoners: every person and situation that Sager presents, he presents in a way that one might not normally think of. The 19 stories serve our culture up to us in sometimes unappealing but always intriguing ways. And because each chapter is a complete entity unto itself, the book is good for picking up and putting down if you have a hectic schedule.
Completely enjoyable (though I confess there was one story that I had to skip over - which one it was, I won't say!). Thoroughly recommended.

I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would. Not to say it was bad, just not for me.Published on September 4, 2013 by OkieGamer1313
I read this on a plane, thought it was really good. I highly recommend this book if you like non-fiction.Published on August 29, 2013 by LeeAnn J. Kendrick
I may not have given this book a chance, but if the first story, the one about John (ugh) Holmes is any example, I do not want to read the rest of this "freaky"
book. Read more
It was an interesting read which I found very entertaining. I enjoy Mike Sager's writing a lot. Would highly recommend it.Published on July 25, 2013 by Amazon Customer
