Gavin McInnes is more than just a rude lunatic who keeps getting beat up. He is an icon who personifies irreverence for an entire generation. This is his story, or, rather, stories - lots of them, and all gut-punchingly hilarious, from that first far reach into a girl's tight jeans to turning forty with a cataclysmic party.
In between you’ll hear about acid trips, threesomes, Nazi skinheads, his band Anal Chinook (Inuit for “warm wind”), Martians in northern Canada, throwing pedophiles in jail, dinner with the Clash, what happens when you crash Bill Maher's show wasted, and the true story of Vice magazine. A gifted writer and a born storyteller, McInnes has lived his life without apology. Learn from it.

I'm so glad Gavin narrated, it made the experience that much more enjoyable. You get to hear him talking in the various accents of the people in his life, mimicking bodily sound effects, and most important you can hear the authentic emotion in his voice as only the person who lived the events can truly express.
It definitely made me laugh, but its not all comedy, there are sentimental parts too.
Note that there is pornographic level detail in the stories and many of them involve drug use. If that doesn't scare you go ahead and get it. It's a interesting/crazy story of an interesting/crazy man with guaranteed laughs.
having found this Antics hilarious in Vice yearned to see a show with him until, picked up by compound media fascinating luck into the psyche of the man was constantly looking for an excuse to pi#@ you off
Gavin is hilarious. I think you have to be slightly fed in the head to enjoy this
Yes, it reminds me of my pre-married youth.
He wrote it.
The remembrance of my youth.
Did not need to hear of his amoral sexuality. I do not believe it added to the story, yes everyone has gone through a hyper sexual phase, either lived out or entirely in ones head. But, it is none of anyone's business sept the experiencer. Other than that, we had very similar childhoods except that my wife locked me down early and me not being famous. After listening to this book I am very happy that I never had an income that would let me live this way because if I did, I would be dead. Kudos to Gavin for surviving!
I think the world would be better if more people read this book. it should be required reading at every University.
There is a line in this book that I had to rewind and replay five times I laughed so hard- "Great sex is like a girl's record collection- no Rush." If you don't get that joke, you won't get this book. If you do get it, then this is exactly the type of book for you. And I've never ever liked a book narrated by the author until I heard this one. Expertly done. Very entertaining and very funny.
Do a little research on Gavin before you purchase this book (he's very present on YouTube) and see if he's your cup of tea or not (ignore the politics, that's not what this book is about). His stories are great and narration even better and you will be laughing in public so be mindful of your dwellings lest you out yourself as a spectrum inhabitant in public. There are somber notes in-between the hilarity as well as some non-sequitor parts that seem to only connect chronologically. That being said this art isn't meant to have holes poked through it. It's genuine and a bargain for the entertainment utils provided.
I have never laughed harder than I have in this book. Especially at the stories of Gavin becoming nothing but a fuck boy and being anti-establishment. Especially at the story where he gave himself an std in his throat.
This book is exactly like what Gavin's life stories are like on his youtube videos or podcasts.
This book was non-stop laughter. It is also really disgusting in parts.
It's a book for dudes.
