Ross is a compete twat that is completely full of himself, but yet you find yourself wanting him to succeed. The book is written in first person from the point of view of Ross and follows him through his first year in college and a summer in the US. He is crass, arrogant and rude.
I want to read them again! I just think they are hilarious. Laugh out loud on the train to work funny, you just can't help yourself! But Ross much I can't stand that boy!

Better than the original I felt, and what a good ending. As with all the ROCK books - they are only funny if you know people like ROCK and his gang in real life.
I bought this book for my teenage daughter as joke, just based on the title.
there were a few funny things in the book, but I think its definitely for teens.
