I loved this book! Painfully honest, unassuming, and unpretentious. I read it in one sitting and couldn't stop, only wishing there was more, when I was finished! The author takes you on his trips, and runs the gamut of experiences, emotions, exasperation, and ecstasy! Absolutely hilarious, and fully sobering, which is something, given the general drunken misadventures within.

Stop jerking around and just get this book immediately.

You'll thank me.
