Synopses & Reviews
Tucker Max meets Judd Apatow in this brash and disturbingly funny guide to cheating, from three acclaimed and popular comedians.
Monogamy ain’t what it used to be.
From Clinton to Tiger to Tiki, our celebrities and leaders have ushered in a new age of adultery. But whether you’re stepping out on the First Lady or sexting from the comfort of your own home, the same rule applies: It’s only cheating if you get caught.
In this wickedly hilarious field guide to philandery, comedians Burr, DeRosa, and Kelly turn their “hands-on” experience into the advice a young and freethinking generation of men (and women) needs to play the game. Cheat addresses the theory and practice of infidelity with a keen eye for detail and a sharp satirical edge, delivering manifestos on honesty, tips on explaining away a pair of forgotten earrings on the nightstand, and the tools to always stay one step ahead.
After all, if you’re going to cheat, it’s better for everyone if no one ever finds out.

“Uncompromising and funny. Read it. Even though it will destroy all hope.” —Colin Quinn, star of Long Story Short
“I usually think reading is kinda ‘fruity’ but this book got me hard. What a great summer beach read . . . if the beach is in Haiti.” —Dave Attell, host of Insomniac and Dave’s Old Porn
