Audio Book Summary

From his early days videotaping crazy skateboard stunts to starring in the Jackass movies, there was little that Stephen 'Steve-O' Glover wouldn't do.Whether it was stapling his nutsack to his leg or diving into a pool full of elephant crap, almost nothing was out of bounds. As the stunts got crazier, his life kept pace. He developed a crippling addiction to drugs and alcohol, and an obsession with his own celebrity that proved nearly as dangerous. Only an intervention and a visit to a psychiatric ward saved his life. Today he has been clean and sober for more than three years.
Professional Idiot recounts the lunacy, the debauchery, the stunts, the drug addiction, and the path to recovery with bravado, humor, and heart.
'It's mind-blowing to me how utterly far gone Steve-O was, and how he looks back on it in this book with such intelligence, humor, and searing honesty. What a truly unbelievable life.'-- Johnny Knoxville
'A great book to read before you get on the roller coaster to hell, if you plan on surviving to tell about it like Steve-O did.'--Nikki Sixx, author of The Heroin Diaries
'This is the perfect book for people who hate reading.'--Tommy Lee, author of Tommyland
The feedback I've gotten on Facebook and Twitter from those of you who've read this book has been fascinating, heartwarming, and hilarious. I'm happy to keep answering your questions on there, and I encourage more of you to join in the discussion. Hope to hear from you soon, and thank you all so much.

    As a fan of Jackass, I was looking forward to this book but sadly it's not that interesting or that funny

    honestly wish Steve-O could have read the whole memoir instead of just the first two chapters ~ he has such an epic voice ~ but it's understandable after learning he has esophogitis. regardless of that, this is an incredibly awesome memoir that is entertaining and emotional even if read by someone who isn't necessarily a fan of him or Jackass. Steve-O is an exceptional human being with an unbelievable life that anyone can learn from or relate to.
