It really is a book that seems to be his "Sloppy Seconds". The stories seem to be incomplete leftovers that were probably edited out of his first books due to lack of humor. Now that he has established his fanbase and generated intrigue this book is more like the midget boxing/wrestling he references in the book. If you read Sloppy Seconds you will get my point.
If this book wasn't so cheap I would have been more disappointed. Since it was relatively inexpensive and did provide a few laughs (at least at the beginning) I am fine with it.
You WILL laugh, you WILL be shocked, and likely you WILL love it.
Part One of "Sloppy Seconds" consists of three stories - one from each of his three previous books. Part Two is made up of material that didn't make the cut. And Max is quite up front about that. Which I appreciate... because when the first story in Part Two began to offend me, I knew to stop reading.
"Sloppy Seconds" lets you test drive his style, which is somewhere well below "National Lampoon" on the evolutionary scale. I laughed non-stop through the first story in Part One. His behavior was reprehensible... but the story is truly funny. I got a kick out of parts of the third story, too. But the second one was probably the most disgusting piece of gross-out trash I've ever read. On balance, this free sample convinced me I don't want to read anything else he's written.
If you're into extreme gross-out humor, you'll love Tucker Max. Otherwise, my advice is to proceed with caution. He can be funny without being disgusting... but you may not want to wade through the slime to find the gems.
Oh, wait... it's free?! Never mind then, I'll buy it.
It's Tucker Max's weakest material, seeing as how a few of the stories are summed up with "I guess you had to be there". It's still Tucker Max, and it's still funny, but I've come to expect more from him.
Good Value? At the price point... It's a worth a read if you don't want to spend the money on one of his regular books yet to see if you like his style. You won't get the side-splitting moments like his other books, it's more of a taste. A taste that will leave you wanting for more.
He could've gone out and had some more drunken sloppy cheap lewd adventures and made fresh stories from them. But he's getting a little old for that. Plus, there's a risk that there's only so many ways to live those adventures and tell about it.
Instead, he bulked up the material by reprinting stories from the first three books. And then he cut the price all the way down to FREE.
Now we're talking!
The old fans will be happy because it's a few more stories. The new fans (like me) are happy because we get to try Tucker Max before buying. And Tucker will be happy because some of us new fans are going to go on and buy one of the non-free books that supplied the stories for the first part of this book.
Tucker turned a publishing lemon into lemonade. The man is a genius.
