What started out as a few Montreal drug addicts scamming welfare make-work programs back in 1994 has become a global empire of hedonism known simply as VICE. From a 16-page newspaper about punk bands and violence to stores, a clothing line, VICE Films, VICE TV, VICE Records,, etc., VICE has become much more than a way for three guys to get laid. It's become a ...more

I've said before that Vice at this point has been so cool for so long that it's almost no longer cool to admit to liking it. But as I have also said before, I. Don't. Fucking. Care. Vice is sheer and utter genius. There is no amount of irony or hipsterism or band-wagonry that could make me stop loving it.

So after the DOs and DON'Ts book, I just had to put this back in the bathroom. And how-lee shit, I forgot how mind-bogglingly incredible it is. After an interview with the three of them at the

This is the most fun I ever had reading. Who would have though a bunch of junkies trying to cheat the government could turn out such a fantastic product?

tons of small articles, fillers, and tid-bits. the greatest of "VICE," taken from years of hard work. Some of the language and views i could do without, but that's whats great about VICE: they don't censor anyone. In fact, i don't even think they edit anyone. Full of cliche's and wacky ass pictures, this book is perfect for long trips.

A few examples of what you'll find in here:
1) Vice guide to eating pussy [or the the Vice guide to sucking cock!]
2) Vice interview with a fat guy
3) Why interviews

So hilarious... and read at the perfect time in my life.
I've never been a fan of decadence-for-hipness'-sake, but the A&E sections of the local free papers aren't much less obnoxious, and the Vice pieces that aren't so much about self-glorification (or sloppy attempts at tastemaking) are often wonderfully random and/or laugh-out-loud funny. I think the best thing in here is at the very end of the book: scathingly honest student evaluations purportedly written by a veteran sixth-grade teacher at his wits' end.

Vice magazine has been ruining my life for years. This book sums up why I'm glad it did. Hedonism and nihilism in perfect harmony. Yes, it might be offensive, sexist, and racist at times, but their intent is in the right place- to break every taboo and barrier that exists. Their twitter describes Vice as the "all-powerful, all-consuming whore of Babylon" and I say keep it coming. If you're new to the "being cool" game, this might help.

Recommends it for: Teenagers and those who don't know much about sex
Shelves: non-fiction
The articles are mostly informative and always interesting despite however useless and crazy they tend to be and plus YOU'LL BE LAUGHING YOUR ASS OFF through most of them anyways. I got it as a virgin teenager and it has helped me from the very beginning, especially whenever I come across a man who is clueless about eating pussy. Ah I taught them well, thanks to Vice there will me many more happy women in the world!

This book is great for one simple reason: it talks about sex, drugs and rock n' roll and educates those of us too chicken to indulge in copious amounts of all three. For instance, I learned that Mennonites buy sperm to keep their population genetics straight. And I also learned that if you put something blatantly sexual on your resumee, there's a good chance you'll get at least one call back.

Absolutely my most favorite book in life. Have read this book probably 20 times, and I wish I was kidding. I can't wait until the kids are old enough to read this, actually. Honest gonzo journalism with it's finger firmly on the pulse of....well.....everything. Can't say enough good things about all the Vice Guides. I wish I could give it more stars.....
So funny and realistic. Love the list of Guilty Pleasures and the "How To" sex articles. We have this on the shelf and occasionally I pick it up to reread something and laugh until I cry! Still!
This book will help you pull more tail then wearing a wolf t-shirt on an Indian reservation.

It also has lots of tips on feasting on the fine poon. The correct answer is NOT holding your breath!
Truthfully, this is probably a four-starrer, but I work here, so I'd give it 87 stars if I could. We have a new collection coming out soon that will blow this thing out of the water.

I love Vice, and their older issues pushed all sorts of boundaries. This is a collection of a whole bunch of articles about, well I bet you can figure that out on your own. Great book.
This book "literally" changed my whole perspective on people life and society. The Most Important Collection of Writings I've Ever Read and recommend anybody and everybody to read.
one of the funniest manuals about life ever. Learn sex tricks, and what drugs do to you. There is so much to be read and learned and laughed at. Give it a whirl!
This is a good reference for people who know little to nothing about sex, drugs, or rock & roll. Who doesn't love Vice anyway?!
This is a hilarious coffee table book that you should take off the coffee table when your grandma is coming over.
you will be in a que as 3 people have already asked to borrow it from finding it lying around. A perfect toilet book.
Absolutely crazy, absolutely profane, absolutely entertaining. Not for the shy of heart.

Andrew WK has an amazing article in here. Also tips on butt sex.
