I HAVE to give it a 5-star because I LOVE BAM!!!
This is more like a scrapbook, with tons of pictures and his handwritting on notebook paper or papernapkins or anything else he could find to write on. If you are a huge fan of Jackass or Viva la Bam or all his other shit, you'll basically know most of what's in this book.
If you are a fan, you should definetly check it out, if you aren't, don't bother you will be appalled, there is no sensors in the book. I would not recommend it for the younger
I got this book for Christmas because I totally idolize Bam Margera as a skater and adreniline junkie.Within the first few pages of his calendars I thought it was the best thing ever.You get a deep look inside Bam and see that he isnt just a boozed up skater.He's real and I love that.I think the best part was where he described the taxi driver taking him two hours in the wrong direction on his way to meet with The 69 Eyes.For fans of Bam I really think you'd enjoy this.Go out and get this.
I thought this was going to be an actual book but it was really just a collection of pictures. There are pages with Bam's handwritten notes but they are messy, hard to read, and often covered with pictures. The pictures are cool and there are a bunch of calendar pages outlining Bam's everyday life but other than that nothing really special. If you're a die-hard fan of Bam I'd suggest it, but if you're looking for more depth this isn't for you.
I honestly didnt know what to expect when i got this book...
But i really enjoyed it, i found it scatty and all over the place just as i imagine Bam is in real life, but i loved that it was in his own hand, and the calenders were brilliant, what a lovely yet small glimpse into his world. Ill be honest and say i would have liked there to have been a bit more...
The photos were also really good.

I love Bam with all my heart, and I found this book perfect. Who cares if it has a lot of pictures? He tells awesome stories from way back when Jackass was just starting out as a TV show, all the way to around 2006! I'm definitely going to read it again, and again, and again, until I have it completely memorized! Amazing, 5 stars. ♥

I loved how the book was like reading Bam's diary. I loved the pictures and the layout. The only negative thing I have to say is that some of the news articles and diary entries are cut off so it makes it difficult to read some of the stories. I would love it if Bam would release a biography of his life.
Not great, but not terrible. Exactly what you'd expect from this guy. I received it as a birthday gift shortly after its release from my fiancee, and the both of us have always liked Bam's shows, cKy, etc. Not worth the money, but as a gift, it's a good time to flip through.

Recommends it for: die hard fans of Bam Margera only
This isn't really a book. It's Bam's pictures and xerox copies of his day planner. Flip through it at the bookstore, don't spend your money on it.
