Life is full of trivia. More and more, it seems, every waking minute of our lives is spoken for, by the inconsequential, the irrelevant, the incidental, the positively wasteful, and by a whole host of other stuff that serves no purpose whatsoever other than to distract us from what is really important. It’s time for a remedy. It’s time to counter the avalanche of useless stuff with something really essential. And here it is: everything one could ever need to know in order to retain a hold on what life is really all about – in one easy-to-use compendium of wisdom: The A-Z of Stuff. This work has been painstakingly compiled – with no reference to sensitivities, accuracy or fairness – to provide its readers with all the indispensable stuff they will ever need. So, whether it is an explanation of the flaws of democracy, a demolition of the principle of ‘human rights’, a treatise on the scourge of testosterone or a review of the unavoidable hilarity of sex, it can all be found within the pages of The A-Z. Presented in an easy-to-read, concise format, The A-Z educates and entertains at the same time. With a large helping of humour and some snappy doggerel, it is an invaluable mine of information, but one that doesn’t take itself entirely seriously – or at all! The A-Z of Stuff will win over all those who are almost continuously distracted by the unimportant stuff, and equip them instead with all that is really important – and, no doubt, with some nourishing food for thought...
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The unapologetic, laugh-your-ass-off military memoir both vets and civilians have been waiting for, from a five-tour Army Ranger turned YouTube phenomenon and zealous advocate for veterans
 
Members of the military’s special operations branches share a closely guarded secret: They love their jobs. They relish the opportunity to fight. They are thankful for it, even, and hopeful that maybe, possibly, they’ll also get to kill a bunch of bad guys while they’re at it. You don’t necessarily need to thank them for their service—the pleasure is all theirs.

In this hilarious and personal memoir, readers ride shotgun alongside former Army Ranger and private military contractor and current social media phenomenon Mat Best, into the action and its aftermath, both abroad and at home. From surviving a skin infection in the swampy armpit of America (aka Columbus, Georgia) to kicking down doors on the outskirts of Ramadi, from blowing up a truck full of enemy combatants to witnessing the effects of a suicide bombing right in front of your face, Thank You for My Service gives readers who love America and love the good guys fresh insight into what it’s really like inside the minds of the men and women on the front lines.

It’s also a sobering yet steadying glimpse at life for veterans after the fighting stops, when the enemy becomes self-doubt or despair and you begin to wonder why anyone should be thanking you for anything, least of all your service. How do you keep going when something you love turns you into somebody you hate? For veterans and their friends and families, Thank You for My Service will offer comfort, in the form of a million laughs, and counsel, as a blueprint for what to do after the war ends and the real fight begins.

And for civilians, this is the insider account of military life you won’t find anywhere else, told with equal amounts of heart and balls. It’s Deadpool meets Captain America, except one went to business school and one went to therapy, and it’s anyone’s guess which is which.
My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole. I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead. But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world.
--from the Introduction



Actual reader feedback:




"I am completely baffled as to how you can congratulate yourself for being a womanizer and a raging drunk, or think anyone cares about an idiot like you. Do you really think that exploiting the insecurities of others while getting wasted is a legitimate thing to offer?"




"Thank you, thank you, thank you--for sharing with us your wonderful tales of drunken revelry, for teaching me what it means to be a man, for just existing so I know that there is another option; I too can say 'screw the system' and be myself and have fun. My life truly began when I finished reading your stories. Now, when faced with a quandary about what course of action I should take, I just ask myself, 'What Would Tucker Do?'--and I do it, and I am a better man for it."




"I find it truly appalling that there are people in the world like you. You are a disgusting, vile, repulsive, repugnant, foul creature. Because of you, I don't believe in God anymore. No just God would allow someone like you to exist."




"I'll stay with God as my lord, but you are my savior. I just finished reading your brilliant stories, and I laughed so hard I almost vomited. I want to bring that kind of joy to people. You're an artist of the highest order and a true humanitarian to boot. I'm in both shock and awe at how much I want to be you."




"You are the coolest person I can even imagine existing. If you slept with my girlfriend, it'd make me love her more."
