A stunning collection of road and life stories that leave no awful detail untold. As a fan of NOFX, it's a look behind the torn, vomit stained curtain of a band that seems to have stayed together and succeeded _despite_ their entire story. But even for a people who don't know NOFX, but might be curious about a completely different kind of life, this stands on its own as one hell of a listen. Even at its most hilarious moments, you'll probably be glad you weren't there. And at its most raw, it will seriously tear your heart out. This became something I didn't expect it would. One of my top listens.

Great hook, great narrator, little payoff

This starts out really punchy, with great humour. But it soon descends into cookie-cutter self help preaching. Ironic that it points out the problems with exceptionalism early on, then goes on to base lessons around the stories of exceptional people. The book may offer some perspective for younger adults, but if you're pushing middle age you've already learned what's worth giving a f*ck about.
