Steve-O from 'Jackass' has written a book. In ink, no less! Check out the cover.

Posted on

Professional Idiot

Great memoirs often come from people who have experienced a lot of pain in their lives, which is why I expect Steve-O’s to be nothing less than brilliant. I’m hoping for something on the level of Mary Karr or Jeannette Walls, but with more exploding port-o-potties and fart machines. The book, which hits stores on June 7, is going to be called Professional Idiot and “recounts Steve-O’s glory days, drug addiction, and his path of recovery and redemption—all while maintaining the bravado and humor for which he is famous.” While I’m pretty sure that actually isn’t what he’s famous for, you have to at least be somewhat interested in the story of a man who can describe being kicked in the testicles repeatedly as “glory days.”
