i will never be able to say a bad word against Louis Theroux because he is nothin less than a legend. This book is therfore legendry, but to be fair if Louis was to release a song into the charts where he does nothin but whistles i would also say it was legendry! sriously though, good book!

  A pretty good read

Interesting, quite readable book from Louis Theroux. The extremely weird and disparate chapters are in turns funny and flabbergasting, but hold together well through the author's constant presence as a participant as well as narrator. Because it's based on different episodes of his television series, the book naturally jumps from area to area but doesn't suffer too much. From gangsta rappers to licensed prostitutes to white supremacists, we see humanity in various guises that always include a big dollop of weirdness.
