    A Book Review and Fight Predictions for UFC 128This is a post-apocolyptic survival manual written by season one The Ultimate Fighter winner and brief UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin. The book covers all the important parts of surviving after the shit goes down. You learn how to shoot a gun, hotwire a car, build a vehicle of death (with instructions of Zakk Wylde, who I never knew was an authority on building bad-ass Mad Max style trucks), properly administer a rear-naked choke (I'm hoping to learn how to do a flying arm bar to fend off marauders when shit goes down. The first time I saw one in a fight I was stunned, and I think it would make people think twice about fucking with you in a dystopian wasteland. Watch this short video and I'm sure you'll agree this is pretty cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09Lk0f... ) , milk a giraffe, how and why to avoid hippies, how and why to befriend the homeless, how to have a castle in the new world, how to choose a suitable wild animal as a sex partner, how to create a religion based around yourself in civilization budding up on the wasteland of our own and why one should never try to jump up and hang onto a giraffe's neck at the zoo (among other things). You learn a lot of other things too, like how to fish, pull your own teeth with pliers, fix a broken leg, but there is so much knowledge and information packed into these pages you'd be a sucker not to run down the store and pick up a copy. Probably now, just in case shit gets really ugly in the next twenty four hours or so. I'm fairly sure there isn't another survival book that is going to tell you how to get milk from a giraffe (you need a motorcycle), or for that matter from a kangaroo. There is also quite a bit of humor thrown in, a good deal of it sophomoric, but still worth lots of out loud chuckles if you like dick and shit jokes, which doesn't everyone? So that is the book review. You may stop reading now. This is also part of the book review, but it's only related to the book because the author is a fighter in the UFC. Today (March 14th) has been a shitty fucking day. I forgot to take my meds last night and slept for almost twelve hours, had nightmares, then dizzy spells and all kinds of other shit and ended up the evening very depressed and finally gave in to taking my meds again, which I keep wanting to get off of, but if today's neuro-chemical delight was an indication of what withdrawal will be like I guess I'll continue being a prescription drug addict. But it is also possible that my bleak evening was because of the email I got from the UFC (yes I'm on an email list for the UFC, I consider it my sports news, and it's great because I only get them once every week or two so I don't have to exert myself much). Apparently Zuffa (the company that owns the UFC) has just bought Strikeforce, one of the smaller, maybe the number two sized MMA organization in America. This leaves just M-1 left, which was usually partnered with Strikeforce as the sole non-UFC source of high quality MMA. I might have been reacting to this news and just blaming the pills on feeling like the whole world sucked. And this news does kind of suck. The UFC is kind of dickish, and they are corporate assholes who won't allow their shit to be shown on places like youtube. And monopolies suck. And this will be less MMA events that fans can watch, which maybe is a good thing because they usually take like three or four hours to get through. On the plus side though the UFC will now actually have a fairly deep heavyweight division (although it won't make watching those heavyweight fights much more interesting, since heavyweight fights are generally one round affairs), and Strikeforce had women fighting, so this means that soon there will be women beating the shit out of each other on the UFC. That is cool, right? Actually I'm not that depressed about this merger, the Strikeforce events I had seen (like the live one I saw last month) weren't really that good (but they do have chicks fighting, not at the event I went to though). But it did remind me that in the past year Zuffa acquired World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), which even though they had a really lame name had much more exciting fights than the average UFC event. The loss of the WEC does sadden me, even though most of their fighters are in the UFC now, it's just not the same. Anyway, this upcoming weekend I'm subjecting myself to seeing a second live MMA event. The first one wasn't tiresome enough for me (did you know you can't just fast forward through all the downtime live like you can when you are watching a recording? It's true, you actually have to watch all the stupid elaborate walk-ins to the octagon and all of that shit that I normally skip over, real life sucks sometimes) so I'm going to give it another go (I didn't realize how tiresome it would be when I thought, hey let's get tickets for two events). This is the event I'm going to: http://www.ufc.com/event/UFC128No one is probably going to want to keep on reading, but here are my predictions for the fight card.The first three preliminary fights I know nothing about any of the fighters so I have nothing to say.In the fourth preliminary fight Kurt Pellegrino Vs. Gleison Tibau:I like Kurt Pellegrino as a fighter but I also like when hometown people lose because it upsets the crowd so much. Since he's from NJ and the fight is in NJ I have to put my support with Tibau who I know nothing about, but he has silly looking tattoos, but doesn't have his last name tattooed across his stomach so that is an improvement of Pellegrino's silly tattoos. (you can watch this fight live on facebook at 8pm EST)I have nothing on the next two preliminary fights either. In the last preliminary fight It's Luiz Cane vs. Eliot Marshall. Marshall is from the reality show (which is what I call the Ultimate Fighter show, the only other reality show I watch is Top Chef, which I call Top Chef). He was a nice guy on the show but I still like it when people from the show get beat up so I have to go with Luiz Cane (with some exceptions, there are a few fighters from the reality show I like, such as Forrest Griffin, who I don't need to want to see get beat-up because it seems to happen every fight. But recently Diego Sanchez won a fight (the other season one winner, there used to be two weight classes competing in each season of the reality tv show, now there is only one) but was on the losing end of having his face rearranged. This is what he looked like upon hearing that he won by decision:[image error])Now on to the 'live' event, or what you need to pay 50 bucks to watch on pay per view. Mirko Cro Cop Vs. Brendan Schaub. Schaub will destroy Cro Cop. It will be an embarrassing one sided fight and it will once again show that maybe it's time for some of the Pride Champions to retire. I get why someone like Cro Cop is still fighting, there is finally money in being an MMA fighter and they want some of it, but it's been years since he was really impressive in the ring (ok I just did research and he won 2 of his last 3 fights, but I'm still saying he's going to get pummeled in a first round loss)Nate "The Great" Marquardt vs Dan Miller. This is a tough one. I normally want Marquardt to lose because I don't like his nickname and normally I want Miller to win in his fights, but he's from NJ so I want him to lose. This is a tough one. I'm going to have to go with Miller though.Jim Miller vs. Kamal Shalorus. The Millers are related. Normally I'd want Jim Miller to win but I can't give the hometown crowd more than one win. So I'm going with Shalorus. Urijah Faber vs. Eddie Wineland. I'm hoping hoping hoping that Faber will lose. He's a longtime WEC champion so he probably won't and he is an excellent fighter, but he looks like fucking Vince Neil or some California Surfer and I keep wanting to see him get his face smashed up in a fight. I'd love to see it live. So I'm going to be cheering for Wineland. Plus Faber's training camp is called Team Alpha Male, just another reason to want to see him get demolished. And for the main event: A title fight for Forrest Griffins former belt. Defending champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Jon "Bones" Jones. This is a tough one for me to call (or have opinions based on things other than the actual skills of the fighters). I'd love to see Jones win, he's a fun fighter to watch. He's unorthodox and does some crazy shit, but he's really young (23) and he always looks small compared to the other 205 lbs. I don't know how big he really is, but I always get the impression that he should be fighting at 185 where he would be a monster. Rua is a great fighter from the Pride days and technically he's probably a better fighter than Jones, he also looks a lot bigger than Jones. The fan in me wants to see Jones win because he's the type of fighter that makes watching the UFC events fun (if he went down a weight class I think he could face Anderson Silva, who I would love to see get beat up by Jones). If I were betting I'd put my money on Rua. Either way it should be a great fight and even if Jones loses he's so young that it's not like he's going to go anywhere and in a year or two I'm sure he will have the belt and eventually I'll hopefully get to see him demolish "Sugar" Rashad Evans, yet another fighter who I watch just in the hopes of seeing get beat up.

    I love Forrest Griffin, and thought his first book, Got Fight?, was pretty damn funny. This book, however, was really uneven and sloppy. I did like the tips on how to milk a giraffe from a motorcycle, though :D

    You take one good look at the cover [which is utterly awesome, by the way], you read the title, you see the name of the author and you put two and two together: "Hey this is a comedy book" you'd think. And you'd only be half-right. At best. Now let me explain what I mean. Most of us have a silly thing we believe in - be it squatches, little green men [or "engineers" if you want to be hip and trendy], chemtrails or even an underground race of mole people who are plotting to take over the World - often, while discussing these topics with friends and trying to come across as much-less a rational person [as opposed to someone completely insane], we cover up our theories with a nice layer of humor. THAT'S Forrest's book. I do not have a shadow of doubt that Forrest Griffin believes that the Apocalypse, in some shape or form, is nearing and he is truly prepared to endure it. There are things in this book, where you can see through the jokes and spot legitimately good points that only a man who seriously explored this topic could have made: for example, not to plan your escape routs with paths going under bridges, because bridges will be blown up under "Marshal Law" and your route will be compromised; or not to plan your escape though rivers or lakes, because the water may be contaminated with a toxin (biohazard). I was like "OK, this is becoming very much real, very fast". If you strip away all the bullshit and comedy from this book, you'd be holding a very fat and informative brochure on how to survive a post-Apocalyptic environment. Also, in the portion of the book that explores the possible scenarios of the World ending, you can see that the man is very curious in life, is not just this silly monkey he likes to portray in public - these observations were made by an intelligent and witty man. To sum it up, this was a very fun AND, to my own surprise, educational read. Not the waste of time I imagined it to be... I am not proud of my prejudice.

    When I walked past this book at the library the cover was too good to not take a chance. Full Disclosure: I had no idea who Forrest Griffin was. I don't watch UFC...etc.Honestly upon finding out about the occupation of the author I was a bit turned off. I stuck with it for a hundred or so pages because his writing style is entertaining enough. The book is obvious satire about how to survive the apocalypse. It seems like the kind of book that you'd find in an Urban Outfitters marketed as a coffee table or bathroom read.I couldn't finish it. Toward the later parts of the book it descended too much into "being a real man" and other such things that I know are comedy but are too jocked out in a way that I just don't find entertaining. I returned it early after skimming the last hundred or so pages searching unsuccessfully for something that would jump out and convince me to start reading again.If "manly" comedic writing is your thing, if you're a Forrest Griffin or UFC fanboy, I think you'll have a hard time putting this down. If you're the opposite, I think you'll have a hard time keeping this in your hands.

    i should not have read this book. it wasn't written for me. to be fair, the author pretty blatantly states that this book is written for "dudes." i would contract that criteria to, "dudes that are into mixed martial arts and more specifically are forrest griffin fan boys." because really, it's just a vehicle for a fairly intelligent but probably a little brain damaged guy, and his friends, to share things he thinks, not at all limited to the apocalypse. and that's ok. i just should have listened to him on the first couple of pages instead plowing through 450,000 euphemisms for sex. (seriously, if you wanted to make a venn diagram of subjects in this book, it would have to be 10 ft. in diameter to even see the tiny sliver that represents "not a euphemism for sex or sexual organs.")so yeah....sometimes i make poor choices.

    Tbh, I'm not entirely sure why HarperCollins bothered to give the resources to publish this book. Idk... I'm not a fan of MMA at all; maybe this Forrest guy is a big enough name to sell some books just on author's name alone? I'll warn you right up front: not only did this book contain not a single actual post-apocalypse survival tip, it wasn't even humorous. I didn't laugh once. The book was downright crass at times, then took a u-turn at the very end for Forrest to "rant" (his word) about his pro-Christian outlook. ?? I do not recommend.(Note: I led a program at work on bunkering down and bugging out, and had requested every book in my library's catalog that was tagged "apocalypse." Every other book turned out to be legit and helpful and pretty awesome. I could borrow a word from the title to describe this book....)

    If there's one thing I have learned in my near 30-plus years on this planet is that we are all going to die very very soon. Our air is polluted, our water is toxic, our cows are mad and either a surplus of guns or a lack of guns will kill us all. Either way, we're doomed. I was ready to throw my life away and embrace the cold, bony fingers of death for my Final Resting Solution. But just when it seemed like the cruel whims of a sadistic and evil world would reap my very soul, I stumbled upon this book. I was sold on the cover alone. A wild-eyed Forrest Griffin, clad in a loin-cloth, staring at the reader as an Armageddon-esque mushroom cloud explodes in the background is the kind of eye-catching material that hooks my brain into 'YOU NEED TO READ THIS' mode. From my own great state of Ohio, Griffin won the very first season of The Ultimate Fighter and eventually captured the UFC Light Heavyweight Title. From there his career has been a roller coaster of epic fights and epic post fight meltdowns. But that's neither here nor there, what really matters is his survival skills. You may not realize it, but being from Ohio is a MAJOR qualification to be a survival expert. You may think it's just flat, post-glacial farm land with corn fields stretching as far as you can see, but you would be wrong. It's a crazy wilderness! We get epic snow storms, ice storms, tornadoes, heat waves, not to mention our Great Lake has caught fire from all the pollution. It's like Escape from New York, just with more Amish and deep fried cheese on a stick. But what about the book? Is it worth the paper it's printed on and will you survive? Between the obvious humor and hilarious anecdotes about his personal life, you do learn basic survival skills like how to catch a fish with your bare hands, addressing and treating leg wounds in the wild, proper gun shooting posture and maintenance, how to hot wire a car and more. But whereas it's not Boy Scout levels of detail, you won't find any other book that teaches you how to survive Ragnarök, the ancient Norse End-of-the-World battle. It's a fun book, not to be taken seriously, but still serves as a nice glimpse into the punch-drunk mind of Forrest Griffin. Love or hate him, the man is entertaining. Four out of Five Rear Naked Chokes.

    I have read a crap load of survival books this book is by far the most entertaining of the bunch. I have to say I have never laughed so hard in such a long time. Forest Griffin is a MMA fighter and it seems a survivalist. This book has some interesting facts and ideas about surviving in a post apocalyptic world. It also, as the cover gives a clue to, is filled with humor. Give it a read you will love it.Yeah it is that funny. But in all honesty saying this is a true survival manual is like saying a 1968 V.W. beetle is a classic European sports car. Sure it's European and a classic but it is no way a sports car. It is just a fun automobile in which to putter around town.Well, this book has some ideas on survival. It makes you think about the apocalypse and how it may occur. It will give you a clue on how to set bones and hot wire a car. But don't plan on using it as a survival bible. It is book on survival as a topic that will give you one hell of a laugh. Just look at the cover and you will have a clue at the seriousness of the book.As I read this book I found myself laughing so hard I was crying.Read a few pages next time in a book store and you will see what I mean. This book is as funny as a fat person wedged in and stuck in a bathroom stall with their pants around their ankles yelling, "Help me, I got in and I can't get out!" Trust me I witnessed that mess first hand. It's pretty sad when you have to call the fire department to take a stall apart to get someone out. Every time I walk past the Walmart bathroom here in my home town I got to laugh.Read the book it's that funny.

    To really get into this book, you have to be able to handle guy humor and it helps tremendously if you follow UFC, since there are inside jokes sprinkled throughout the book that elude to specific fighters and events in Forrest's career. Don't think this is actually in the new quasi-serious apocaplypse survival genre. This is pure Forrest insanity, covering advice on such diverse topics as forming your own religion with you at the lead, how to build the perfect vehicle for surviving a post-apocalyptic landscape (think Mad Max meets House Crashers), and what wild animals would be the best to try milking and how (giraffes involve a motorcycle). The humor can get really nasty, which one might expect from someone spending far too much time in locker rooms, and if you give this book to your girlfriend or wife to read, you're going to get a lot of 'eww, ikk, is this what you guys really talk about?'. There's relatively little actual fight talk in the book, a few pointers on getting in a good rear-naked choke, etc., so don't expect it to be about MMA. But if you need a break from the grim post-apocalyptic fare you've been reading, and thought a movie like Zombieland was a rollicking good time, you might just be up for this book!

    Another funny book from UFC fighter Forrest Griffin (again co-written with Erich Krauss), this time focusing on guiding the reader though surviving the end of the world. Like his previous book, "Got Fight?" it starts with a quiz on whether or not you are manly enough to even read it. Then he tells you how to prepare, such as what to put in your Go Bag, how to make a Vehicle of Death. Next comes his outline of various doomsday scenarios, including economic meltdown, asteroid, nuclear war, incurable viral pandemic, super-volcano, and less-likely situations like the Book of Revelations from the Bible and Norse mythology's Ragnarok (which includes "How to Kill a Supernatural Wolf." Then there are tips on surviving the initial shit-storm, like how to hotwire a car, siphon gas, catching a fish with your hands, milking a cow, people you should avoid (hippies, children), and a section on first aid. Later on the book loses steam when he writes about how to start your own post-apocalypse cult, but all in all it's a very informative and humorous book.

    1. a. My favorite part about this book is how realistic most of forrest's advice is. I expected the whole book to be more of a big joke. b. There wasnt much that I didnt like about this book, but there was a few parts his jokes went a little overboard. c."If you still doubt Forrest's future role as the messiah of all mankind, he only has two words for you-ketchup packets." page 245 d. What does it mean to survive?2. a. Miles Cumpston, "Why sometimes, is it okay to do something bad, but other times, it is not?" I think, in certain situations, that doing something lawfully wrong can be forgiven. For example, murder, is highly illegal and you can be put to death for one count, depending on severity, but when the when classified as self deffence, murder is usually justifiable. Although, in most cases, doing a bad this is still bad, there are many possible situations in which an unlawful act can still be morally correct.

    So Forrest Griffin is a mentally challenged gun nut who included "serious section" on god in a 240 plus dick joke book.Despite that he's pretty damn funny. He's as much self-effacing as he ridicules his audience. He doesn't shy away from anything and is completely shameless.He answers some pressing questions like why you should run away from a mass audience when you're about to cry in front of a million viewers, how to wipe yourself post apocalypse and the self-doubt that comes along with sleeping with a post-op tranny. Also strippers and prostitutes maybe be the only people whose jobs aren't affected by apocalypse scenarios.There were actually practical survivalist tips in the book. But you know, only if you're kind of dense.The book peters out and gets pretty repetitive but it was stupid-funny enough to keep me entertained.I think I'll read his first book now.

    This book is not a story at all. It is a guide to survive the apocalypse in Forrest Griffin's twisted imagination. This book is so ridiculously bizarre, that Forrest's mom said "This book is an unholy abomination. It will make you dumber by having read it. Judging by the content, you would think he grew up eating paint chips. I swear that wasn't the case."-Forrest's mom. That quote is in the back cover of the book. Forrest has a couple of good points in this book where some of it actually makes sense, but for a good portion of the book, it is him rambling on about crazy things like how to milk several types of animals, like a giraffe for instance(i still don't understand that part completely). If you want to read a book that will make you laugh uncontrollably, then you will want to read this book. If you do read this book, then you will understand what his mother said on the back.

    Griffin's writing smacks of the late Hunter S. Thompson's Gonzo style. I'd recommend this book for guys. Girls: not so much. Griffin can write really well, but he digresses to potty jokes one too many times for me. Other than that, the raw, driven aggression of his prose, coupled with his weird, yet overall hilarious sense of humor made me look forward to future books by he and Erich Krauss. There's even a few good factoids for survival in there. Good luck finding them in all the satire and slapstick material. Griffin's apocalyptic survival recommendations often serve as criticisms for current social problems, but I don't think anyone has to read the book that way. It's just a little something I picked up on--'cause that's what I do.

    I've been a big fan of the UFC since the second PPV and Forrest deserves the hype of being pivotal in how popular MMA has become after his stint on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter (and in a later season as a coach). If you know him - you know what to expect in this bizarre little book. Who else can develop a way to survive the apocalypse mentioning Pascal's Gambit one minute, MMA for the elderly the next, his perverted lust for deer, and hints on surviving a nuclear war.Definitely a fun and bizarre read (and I think I might've learned a thing or two in the process)."[He] who falls asleep with itchy butt wakes up with stinky finger." - Forrest

    This is the second book from Forrest Griffin I’ve read the first his first one "got fight". I’m a huge MMA fan and have always enjoyed Forrest Griffin fights since he was on the ultimate fighter. This book is about how to survive the apocalypse according to him. It is a very funny and enjoyable book it is also very fast to read even for a slow reader like me. Though I personally like got fight better this is still a great book and if you don’t want some crazy persons guide to living when the end comes then this is prefect for you its a funny and informative look at what to do when the end is here.

    I'm surprised how much I enjoyed reading this: 200 pages of fart jokes, posing as a (satirical) "prepper" survival manual. However there were enough LOLs per chapter to keep me going, and the book is peppered with genuinely good bits of life advice, philosophical musings and personal anecdotes. The book pokes fun of everyone equally - bro's, feminists, the religious, preppers, and the authors most of all.For a redneck that grew up to be a professional MMA face-puncher, Forrest Griffin can sure write a good line or two. Best read while on the can, a few pages at the time (that setting also most closely matches the content matter).

    I have just finished this book and I must admit I'm left a little bit dissapointed. after the success of 'got fight' a book I really enjoyed aswell as finding it hilarious, I was expecting something a little bit more readable/relatable. although some parts were funny (how to slay a mythical wolf was particularly funny!) alot of it seemed like jargon. I know forrest has a sense of humour and that's what makes him so likeable but in the case of armageddon I don't think I'll be following his instructions.

    Forrest and Erich went at it again in this book that should be saved in a vault with America's greatest works of art. If aliens landed on this planet long after we were extinct, I'd like to think they'd find only this remaining remnant of what humanity was. Forrest actually has pretty good survivalist ideology. Him and his wife are extreme gun nuts (as am I) and will probably meet up with Zakk Wylde and all start their own religion/cult in a dilapidated mansion somewhere after the shit ones down. If you gave this book 1 star, remember that Forrest Griffin loves you.

    This is another awesome book by Forrest griffin, my favorite UFC fighter! It's raunchy, it's satirical and smart-a^^, and yes, it is clearly written for the men readers. That being said, as a female and a mom nonetheless, I scored well on his quiz at the beginning of the book so yup...I read it cover to cover LOL! My favs are always his grey boxes. If you like movies like American Pie unrated and characters more like Steven Stifler, then I suggest you read this book. If not or if you are easily offended or live a PC lifestyle, DO NOT!!

    I wasn't expecting too much from this book, given how ridiculous the book jacket is. It's pretty much what I thought it would be - lots of toilet humor and moderately entertaining anecdotes. The one major gripe I had was with the amount of errors in this book. I was really surprised at amount of misspelled words and incorrect grammar I found. Shame on the editor for letting this book go to print with so many mistakes.Check this one out from the library.

    There's a decent chance I might be slightly mentally unfit, but I loved the hell out of this book and read it in a few hours. I laughed out loud quite often. If you don't notice that it contains super offensive material, then you probably can't read anyway. Frankly, this book is after my heart as I more than enjoy irreverence. If I knew anyone that read books, I would buy this for them (or highly suggest they get a copy from the library, as I did). But, alas, I do not.

    Better than the first one, at least in terms of editing and writing. The subject matter was unhelpful and the tone was (like the first one) sort of grossly immature and delinquent, though not as offensive as the first. I think most, if not all, involved are insane. A light read, probably not good for the IQ, but no worse for you than watching a couple of episodes of Jersey Shore, I would venture.

    DNFIf you like reading useless comedy, this is for you. But for me, with the little amount of time I actually get to read, it just felt like a waste spending that time reading something like this. Don't get me wrong, I love Forest Griffin and I find him incredibly funny, but I'd rather watch a standup comedy act by him or something (not that he does that, but he should! LOL)... And so in the end, I decided to toss this one out.

    Funny book and if you liked his first book "Got Fight?" you'll probably like this one too. I personally found Got Fight? more interesting due to the stronger MMA connection and being a bit more autobiographical. The most enjoyable parts of the book for me were the ones that repeated that: the little blurbs from friends or from Forrest about real situations or stories about his past. Outside of that, the book was still an easy read and had some really funny stuff in it.

    This was surprisingly educational. I started skimming it in the bookstore - it caught my eye - and I knew I had to have it. I must disclose that it is certainly not for younger audiences or the easily offended (though this should have been obvious by the title.) However, this book can help you figure out how it'll go down, how to survive when it goes down, and how to rise above the ashes after it goes down.

    Forrest is a great overall entertainer showing as much a knack for writing as knocking people's blocks off. This is a really funny novel and a hilarious parody of all the armageddon paranoia thats surfaced in recent years. Zakk Wylde's tips cracked me up as well. I just hope people do take their tips seriously, I'll need slaves when society collapses.

    Ok, this is a book for blokes but hell it made me laugh too. Forrest Griffin, UFC champ, has a wicked humour that is also also profoundly "naughty schoolboy". It is a hilarious manual on surviving the end of the apocalypse with entertaining anecdotes from names such as Zakk Wylde. I would read this again and laugh harder every time!

    Ever kinda want a Twinkie, so you open a box and eat one? Then, you just kinda eat another. And another. A few minutes later, you're looking down at an empty box with that artificial sponge cake taste in your mouth, feeling disgusted with yourself. And you think to yourself, "And I don't even •like• Twinkies"

    Hilarious.I love his writing style. I think his humor is what keeps you reading for sure. Most of the survival tips he shares seem legit, but the book is peppered with examples of Forrest being Forrest.If you're looking for a serious survival guide, this might not be it. But if you want to take a trip into the mind of a clown that shares the occasional valuable tip, this is a good read.
