About the Author
With the debut of his first book at age 26, Stephen Markley garnered an immediate and devout cult following that has been growing since its publication. Publish This Book: The Unbelievable True Story of How I Wrote, Sold, and Published This Very Book (2010) has been an instant hit for writers, millennials, and anyone who enjoys a brazen sense of humor and a bold imagination. In 2011, he wrote and sold the screenplay and film rights to Kanea Arts Studio. Markley went from an unknown author to having the third-best-selling nonfiction book in Chicago overnight, appearing in publications as varied as Psychology Today, the Writer Magazine, Booklist, the Huffington Post, USA Today, and the Boston Globe. During his book tour across the United States, Markley gathered rave reviews from media and other writers. Markley has cultivated this following with his blog for the Chicago Tribune, “Off the Markley,” which gets approximately 20,000 page views a month and includes subject matter covering everything from the perils of market liberalism to who would win in a fight between a puppy and a baby. His work for RedEye has made him one of its most popular columnists in the most widely circulated newspaper in Chicago. In addition to the Tribune and RedEye, Markley’s work has appeared in The Week, Weber: A Study of the Contemporary West, RadarOnline, Private Investigator’s Magazine, and Cars.com’s blog KickingTires. His fiction has appeared in the Chicago Reader, 10,000 Tons of Black Ink, and Midnight Times. He has appeared on WGN-TV and “The Alex and Amy Show” (formerly ChicagoNow Radio), and Radio DePaul. Exploiting Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and every other social media advantage, Markley has developed a community of ardent fans, collecting thousands of emails and Facebook messages in just nine months of publication.

I did get a small smile or two but the book isn't nearly as funny as it thinks it is. Well, it might be funny if you are a bro and you think farting and commentary about bodily fluids and semi-fluids is humor.
There is almost no Iceland in this book. The author does slip in a little bit of history and local color, but it's so minimal and stranded between bro tales that it might as well not even exist.
Don't waste your money.
-its written by young horny men so there is a wee bit of drama, drinking & notes about boobs
-but between all that its a great diary of what sounds like the exact road trip I hope to experience in Iceland....now I just have to find the person who wants to so it with me! My only hope is that some of the roadside attractions are not out-dated at this point.
