Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Amazing"

    Fucking amazing! That's it had me hanging to every word. Maybe I'm trying to live vicariously but truly a good book!

    Story
    "Hysterical!"
    What does Gavin McInnes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It definitely made me laugh, but its not all comedy, there are sentimental parts too.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "The Great Gavsby."

    Loved it,
    just wish Audible gave you the actual book as well as the audio format. Even if only in PDF. file
    Then I would keep subscription.

    app is great. 30 second rewind feature especially.

    "Gavin: Hilarious, and on-point"

    A rare glimpse into the mind of a unique mind, controversial yet interesting. Give it a listen for the story and performance.

    Story
    "Laugh out loud (and cry)"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Death of Cool to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely must hear in Gavin's voice. Laugh out loud funny and his Scottish and other accents are a must hear. Brutally honest so be prepared for raunchiness. At one point in audio book, he gets choked up, and so did I.There is never, not for one second, a dull moment in his telling of his life from teen to present. I can't wait for the 41-80 follow-up! Seriously, if you're a Gavin fan GET THE AUDIO VERSION NOW!!!

    "Not for some..."

    I absolutely enjoyed it, but there are parts that aren't for some people. If you are okay with an R rated movie or most of the Internet then you're fine.

    "Incredible"

    Best audiobook I've read to date. The real story of Vice magazine was really eye opening and after hearing these stories it's pretty obvious Gavin was everything brilliant about Vice

    Story
    "More like audio cinema ..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Recommended - "guilty pleasure" reading with a ring of truth.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Waaay too similar to some of my own experiences at times ...


    What about Gavin McInnes’s performance did you like?

    No-holds-barred performance w/additional actors (including one of his kids?!) and biographically-authentic background sound (notably, actual audio footage from concert performances of his punk bands). Stellar - this is what an audiobook performance ought to be.
