Five million dollars...Two bitter rivals...A college fraternity or marine boot camp...Winner takes all...No rules...The race is on...Non-stop action...Like being on speed.... Satire, sarcasm, and hyperbole abound in this tale that has been likened to a modern-day, adult humor version of Mark Twain's "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." This completely politically incorrect, bawdy narrative is about the ultimate unscrupulous college anti-hero who you can't help hating. Yet you can't put the book down, somehow compelled to see what happens next. More scheming, hilarious college antics, compete with wild sexual escapades by more bizarre characters than "Best of National Lampoon's Animal House." Enter a college world where the only things that matter are sex, alcohol, drugs, and money. And like all legal battles, the only thing that matters is winning.

From the Author:

Telling stories for years of the stupid explanations of innocence I heard from so many criminal clients that would've brought howling laughter if told to fellow inmates on the yard at San Quentin, I decided to put some of their stories into a book.

In that spirit, I gave my lead character, Kurt Stafford, a shameless, amoral 26-year-old college freshman, the viewpoint of my favorite TV character of the 1970s, Archie Bunker, from All In The Family. And like Archie, no person or group escapes Kurt's satirical eye.

Since an appearance on either Oprah's TV show or Howard Stern's radio program made an unknown author's book an instant bestseller, the line of Toni Morrison and her band of tear-jerking literary comrades was way ahead of me. But since I was a 20-year fan of Howard Stern's, I wrote this book directed at his audience: an uncensored, no-holds-barred group who loves to laugh at all the stupid people in the world and all the dumb stuff that life offers.

"More college than a MAXIM soaked in beer slush on a fraternity floor."--Collegehumor.com
"Funnier than [Thomas Wolfe's] I AM CHARLOTTE SIMMONS."--Collegestories.com
"Finally a thinking man's Ulysses. Everyone agrees: Ron Carpol writes better than Shakespeare..."--HARVARD Lampoon
"Funny is money. This book is all cash."--PAUL RODRIGUEZ, Comedian

And I'm pretty sure I'm going to hell for laughing."--UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO Daily Lobo
