Warning: Don't read this before you eat breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or even think about a snack. There is more vomit in this story than a newborn with a milk allergy. Andrew Loshe pledged SAE at Dartmouth and lived to tell his story about hazing, fratiness, and just general ickiness that "boys" (yes, these are stupid boys) go through just to fit in. After his time at Dartmouth, he wrote an essay for Rolling Stone magazine that got SAE in big trouble and this book is the tale in a much longer...more

ARC for review.

This book is yet another that is an extended version of an article that appeared in Rolling Stone and I feared that there wouldn't be enough here for a whole book, but Lohse is a talented writer and if you are interested in the Greek system and hazing you'll enjoy this (well, you need a fairly strong stomach, too. Don't read this while snacking. Promise me.)

A page turner - a horrific scene that I can't look away from. That said, an important and perhaps, must-read, especially for those in this, or any other college community. I applaud Mr. Lohse for his courage in outing the craziness that has been secret too long. Even if we argue as a community about the veracity of some of the details, we at least owe this man a open-minded read. I encourage anyone who has been to an elite college, a college with Greek life, or has any professional or personal c...more
