Synopses & Reviews
In the same inimitable, uncensored, and hilarious style that has made him one of the most popular voices on satellite radio, Jason Ellis unleashes his no-holds-barred words of advice on diet and exercise, cultivating your signature look, partying, getting laid, maintaining a relationship—and more!
Maybe—like Jason Ellis—you want to have sex with multiple partners and then talk about it on the radio while wearing cheetah pants . . .
Or maybe you have some goals of your own. Whatever the case may be, Jason believes it's all about getting off your ass and maximizing the opportunities that life has to offer. It's about remembering that you are alive, right now, and that won't always be the case. So do something. Anything. Enjoy the ride. Go outside and get naked.
Jason can tell you how to handle every situation life throws at you and play it like a champ: how to look, how to act, how to pick up a stripper—you name it.
But that's just for starters. Jason believes that to get what you really want out of life, you have to have confidence. And true confidence is something you have to earn, by deciding what you want from life and then pursuing your passion until you make your dreams a reality.
This book will show you how to develop the positive attitude that will allow you to truly make things happen.
"Former skateboarding star, currently satellite radio talk show host, and self-proclaimed awesome guy Ellis ('I'm Awesome') delivers an entertaining self-help book. There is a sincere attempt to provide helpful hints to his target audience men ages 18 to 25 that is both enlightening and hilarious, as Ellis offers a simple code to live by: 'When you figure out how to be awesome at one thing, the same rules apply to the rest of the shit in your life.' He includes everything from exercise ('I suggest going to the gym, facing another man, and then punching each other in the face. It's euphoric') to clothes ('for the love of Christ, get your laces straightened out. chicks care about that'), and tattoos ('if the word or the phrase you want is too cheesy to write in English, then Asian characters won't save it'). Even when he decides to give some advice to women ('Vagina hair is on the comeback trail these days') Ellis isn't snarky, but truly wants to 'motivate people to try harder and become better.' (Mar.)"
