    I almost didn t pick this book up There was a blurb on the cover saying how great it was from John Oates of Hall and Oates That was enough for me to put it back on the shelf However, I eventually purchased it anyway since there was also a blurb from Rob McElhenney From Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia , which I love Another reason to pick it up is that the author is from Philadelphia, as am I I also know a few things about drinking from working with Modern Drunkard Magazine here in D I almost didn t pick this book up There was a blurb on the cover saying how great it was from John Oates of Hall and Oates That was enough for me to put it back on the shelf However, I eventually purchased it anyway since there was also a blurb from Rob McElhenney From Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia , which I love Another reason to pick it up is that the author is from Philadelphia, as am I I also know a few things about drinking from working with Modern Drunkard Magazine here in Denver, though I would never call myself degenerate drinker So, the book boiled down to this I drink a lot I m a degenerate I travel I write about booze Hey Did I mention that I drink a lot yawn There is a lotto drinking then saying that you know the difference between whisky and whiskey.So, I was unimpressed to the point of being annoyed Saying that you drink a lot is nothing like the real thing Show it, don t brag about it Also, I know degenerate drinkers These are drinkers who live in bars These are drinkers that wind up getting their teeth kicked in cause they are too drunk to do anything about it These are drinkers too drunk to get anything ever done, but drink These are the drunks that I have to buy a drink for cause they are too poor to afford their own Not some guy who writes for GQ, USA Today, The LA Times, LA Style, Entertainment Weekly, Aspen Magazine, Talk Soup, and SNL He may be a drunk, but gets way too much done to ever be called a degenerate Lastly, I might have given the authorof a pass if he didn t try so hard to be Hunter S Thompson to the point where he apparently ran for mayor of Aspen HST ran for sheriff in 1970 Also calling himself an outlaw writer as HST did The guy aping some of HST s writing superficialities without any of the insight He s too busy telling us what a degenerate drunk he is

    This book had so much potential, but it just fell short There were good tid bits of info about different types of booze, but I wish he focusedon styles instead of specific brands that might be hard to find His pop culture and political references put the book at risk for becoming dated in a time I also didn t like some of his goofy, over the top stories that he clearly made up while writing this drunk He would have been better off sharingof his legitimate antidotes of some of the This book had so much potential, but it just fell short There were good tid bits of info about different types of booze, but I wish he focusedon styles instead of specific brands that might be hard to find His pop culture and political references put the book at risk for becoming dated in a time I also didn t like some of his goofy, over the top stories that he clearly made up while writing this drunk He would have been better off sharingof his legitimate antidotes of some of the crazy, comped, trips he took.I feel like the last chapter of the book was the best one, he actually got serious and wrote about something that was actually important to him

    I started into NLaQ with high hopes There are a number of cool drink recipes and anecdotal tidbits of a booze writers life Overall though, I was left hoping for a littleIt seemed to have so much potential It s a really quick read, so that s a bonus I hope Dan Dunn decides to writein the future..maybe with a thicker sequel about how much nobody likes a quitter.

    What a rambling mess of a book that doesn t go anywhere Oh well, it was only 3 ona few months back This is a patchwork piece aimed at idiotic drunk fratboys, but I knew it wasn t going to be a read of any substance when I began it I did however get a few laughs, quotes, and drink recipes out of it.

    A little too self referential, in a way that obviously thought itself cute but really wasn t.

    It was fun to read, cleverly written plus Dara is friends with the dude who wrote it.
