"An extremely funny and engaging book about how fandom provides people with surrogate families and a way to escape day-to-day banality.", Rolling Stone (four-star review)
"[A] deftly told tale.", The Huffington Post
“I love this book. Not only is it funny and well written, but it is, dare I say… beautiful. People could learn a thing or two from Nathan. Instead of judging new things and keeping them at bay because they’re 'scary' or 'shitty,' he embraces them and walks away with rich life experiences. So, give yourself a rich life experience of your own and read this book. Then, when you’re finished, go and see a Phish show. What do you have to lose? Nothing. What do you have to gain? – maybe they’ll play a thirty minute “Tweezer” and you’ll get to see god.” -- Harris Wittels
"Nakedly honest.", The Capital Times
“Awesomely funny…. I’ve rarely read something that was so good at understanding and building empathy for such an unlikely group.” -- David Plotz, Slate Staff Pick, Best Books of 2013
"[Insane Clown Posse] may forever remain the butt of jokes, but there's a lot of community-building going on here as revealed in the acclaimed book You Don't Know Me But You Don't Like Me.", Huffington Post

Additionally, I felt like the author should have been a protagonist I was rooting for, but really I could never really connect with him. Not sure how to put it into words exactly, but this guy did nothing to endear himself to me. There was just no connection. I continuously had to ask myself "What is the point of all this? Why am I supposed to care what happens?"
So he turns into a Phish fanboy (nothing wrong with that) and writes a bunch of shallow anecdotes about getting messed up at Phish shows. It's like if I had kept a diary in college and let you read it, it would have basically been half of this book. Redundant and directionless. Story after story of the same thing.
I did enjoy learning about the ICP/Juggalo subculture, but I honestly wish I had just googled it and researched them on my own. The Phish part did nothing for me as I am no stranger to jam band/festival culture, and there wasn't really any unique insight offered up by the author here to make it interesting.
This story is the story of a guy searching for a story. And unfortunately for the reader, he never really found it.
True, this book is somewhat rambling and lacks focus at times- the author himself admits to this. I like his style of writing though- lots of humor. Overall, this is probably more suited as a beach or poolside book. Light, easy, full of easy laughs and easy to pick up on if you are reading in multiple settings.
