This was the best book I've read in years. I read about 200+ books a year and teach at a few universities. I cancelled all my plans for a weekend and read it cover to cover in 48 hours. Its a pure adventure ride and journey into a mans soul, There are so many lines of concrete wisdom. I have recommended it to many. Thank - you!
I still have nothing????
shout out Paul Bilz!!
I've just finished reading the book, and I can't express how amazed I am after reading the book, I've been telling everyone I talk to - to give it a read, some elements might not be realistic in everyone's life choices, but the core principles are super strong - loved the unapologetic person dan is, in this crazy story.
I love biographies and Dan’s is definitely unique.
Can I receive a signed copy please?

Haven’t started it yet looking forward to it I like the intro about his father.
As someone who normally reads autobiographies by great leaders, philosophers, politicians and sports people, this was an unusual choice for me. I was intrigued to see whether the snippet of his life we see on social media was at all representative of his everyday experience and it seems it is! This was an incredibly enjoyable read written simply and conversationally as if we were sat next to the man himself. For someone who is not a writer, he has done a great job of explaining his past experiences in a clear and humorous way and I have a lot more respect for the man who I wrongfully assumed was merely a hedonistic playboy. Dan comes across as an intelligent, observant and thoughtful person who is just unafraid to speak his mind - a trait so easily beaten out of those who speak out these days. I'd highly recommend you read this book to gain a fresh perspective on living life to the full - if not simply to be shocked and entertained. Well done Dan. A great first book!

My first impression when reading this book was "Holy ****! Holy ****! Holy ****! This really happened?! ****! ****!...****!" And that was after getting past chapter 3. I've heard about Dan Bilzerian a couple of times, but didn't know much about him besides being called "Instagram famous". There's a lot of ****, a lot of drugs, a lot of ****-raising, and everything else in between that I didn't know existed before. There's also a lot of nuggets containing life lessons on succeeding by learning and failing fast, how denying yourself happiness does harm to your psyche, why you shouldn't negate your authenticity when you really like someone, prioritizing money as gifts instead of loans to friends and family, appreciating your success from time to time, taking pride in who you are as a person instead of how you identify with race or religion, pursuing a message bigger than yourself, defining happiness and pleasure, and cyclists are pussies. This book won't be for everyone and that's okay. I'm glad I found this book because it gave me an uncensored look into the world of fame and the lifestyle required to keep it. But it's also giving me a smack in the head to start making my own dreams bigger. Thank you for sharing your story Dan!
On top of all the ridiculous stuff that has happened in Dan's lifetime there are some very good pieces of advice spread throughout the book. It definitely motivates you to obtain a decent amount of fame & money but also displays the downsides (especially of fame).
Book is everything you want and expect. Few surprises or behind the curtain revelations but an enjoyable vicarious exposure to The Life of Dan.
I loved this book from the beginning to start I would definitely recommend it 100%.

About half way through and just mind blown on the life Dan has lived. I also didn’t realize the philanthropy Dan has done. Really great read.
