i finally got around to reading this after sitting on it for maybe a year or so. got it randomly at a white elephant christmas party with some old college friends. the lesson being to never pick the big packages because sometimes a jokester will just put a really small package in that big package and you end up getting something ridiculous like this, instead of the george foreman grill that was rumored to be in one of the big packages. ah well. for some reason they thought it was perfect for me, ...more

Hilarious and full of great ideas. If you're a guy who enjoys adventures and having a good time, this book should be on your list. I'm 25 and after reading Die Happy, I realized I need to get out there and do more while I'm young, single and relatively responsibility-free. I'm now planning a road trip (based on one of the book's suggestion) this summer. Not to mention, a fishing expedition, Wrigley Field visit and the Austin City Limits Music Fest.
Book had fine stories, interesting ideas, and was organized well. However, felt it was missing. It felt like a pg version of tucker max, "I hope they serve beer in hell." Cover is similar, but there wasn't much uumph. Nothing over the top. Nothing to go wow, now that is something. It was strong enough. Not a page turner that I hoped. It was okay. Could've been much better I thought.
Not very good. There are some good ideas in here, but most of the book is tailored to assholes. The personal narratives interspersed with the destinations were mostly boring and poorly written. It was worth as skim to add a few destinations to my future travel list.
