    One thought on “I'm Awesome: One Man's Triumphant Quest to Become the Sweetest Dude Ever”

    1. To be honest, I was hoping for more. Not that Ellis holds anything back, he lays his drug and alcohol addled past right out there in gory details, but falls short in his post-addiction life. One chapter he's hooked then he's just clean; no mention of how or how difficult it was or wasn't. The narrative feels like a drunk telling a story: it randomly wanders from place to place with no reference of when the stories take place. One moment he is in 2004 then he jumps back to 2000, at least as far a [...]

    2. Because I like Jason Ellis from Siruis and Skateboarding I really liked this book. Very funny. However if you do not like any of this - it may not be the book for you. If you do like his show, his past, I think this may be your speed.

    3. It was definitely what I expected from Ellis! Rambling, funny, and just shows he is crazier than he think's he is.

    4. Honest. That is the best way to describe not only this book but Jason Ellis. In the age where "everyone gets a trophy" Jason Ellis stands out because he is honest. He is honest to himself, and that honesty carries over to his radio show, and his book. Because he is willing to admit that he screws up, he can tell others when they are screwing up and not come off like a hypocrite. Ellis is just like you and me, he gets happy, sad, scared, upset, confused, lazy, and he talks about such a wide range [...]

    5. The primary reason I read this book was because a neighbor informed me "it is the only book I've ever read cover to cover" and then lent it to me. I had no idea who Jason Ellis is (and still really don't, ha!), but I was very curious what kind of book someone who never reads, reads! So, I've been contemplating rating the book from two different perspectives- one from my typical perspective (mine!), but the other from the perspective of maybe someone more like my neighbor, the kind of person who [...]

    6. I came into this book with certain expectations. I was hoping this book would be much more about the hard work and ups and downs of working towards one's dreams. Given the title "I'm Awesome: One Man's Triumphant Quest to Become the Sweetest Dude Ever" I don't think that was a far gone conclusion.What is however is a very entertaining autobiography full of stories of drug use, competition, and rising from the ashes. I give it 4 stars because it was compelling and I read it in one sitting. That's [...]

    7. I'm a big fan of Sirius/XM radio channel Faction where Jason Ellis has a show. When I saw his bio at the library I picked it up.Jason's on air bud helped him to write the book so you can really get to hear it in his voice as there probably wasn't too many changes made in the edit. The grammar isn't the greatest but I enjoyed hearing stories of Jason growing up in Australia and the drama with his family. Jason's life is filled with a lot of tales of sex, drugs and excess. There isn't much complex [...]

    8. This isn't the kind of book I normally read. It caught my eye on the "New" book shelf at the library, and I was intrigued by the bad boy changes into good guy summary on the jacket. I was immediately pulled into the story of Jason's life. I connected with his childhood issues and life/relationship struggles. He does a good job of explaining human (male) behavior that I didn't understand until I read his perspective on it. It is a very inspiring story, reinforcing my belief that no matter where y [...]

    9. While this is a book about Jason's life it has a very different view to how he is now. If you listen to the radio show now you know that a lot has changed since this book was written. While it doesn't show his current views on his past it is interesting to see the evolution of where he was when he wrote this book and to where he is today and how things have changed so much in such a short amount of time.

    10. I'm a HUGE Ellis fan. This bio was pretty much what you'd expect from Ellis. Entertaining, funny, sad, and honest. There's skateboarding glory, personal struggle, and the beginning of maturity. The bio ends just as his radio career is beginning to take off and before his divorce. I can't wait to read the follow up- especially now that he's found his voice. Red Dragons!

    11. Absolute garbage if you want to hear how someone came to their fame this is not the book, all he talks about is banging hookers, and doing every drug you can think of. I was a big fan but not so much anymore the guy is a loser. The book is pointless do not read especially if you are a fan because you won't be when you are done.

    12. This book will definitely not be for everyone. I love the Jason Ellis Show on Sirius XM so this was a must read for me. It was interesting to see more of Jason Ellis' life beyond just the funny dude on the radio. If you listen to/enjoy his show, definitely give this book a shot.

    13. It pains me to give my fellow Wolfknives only two stars, but Mr Ellis and Mr. Tully's respective talents lay within different mediums. "I'm Awesome" is entertaining enough, but as a work of literature it is on the lower end of adequate.

    14. I was hoping for more. I'm a fan of Ellis but I feel like I have heard more in depth versions of half of these stories listening to his radio show. The writing wasn't all that great and j felt like I was reading a slightly better Tucker Max book.

    15. Was pretty much what I expected, a look into the life of the guy whom entertains me on my rides to/from work. Just wished he had delved into the bits closer to current times in his lifeen only listening to him for 6months or so.

    16. Great readReally amazing the things he went through and overcame them on his own, through sheer will, really good read, recommended

    17. Fun and easy to read. Not exactly a literary masterpiece, but it IS a biography of a pro skateboarder-turned-radio jockey. Makes for good "light reading".

    18. Only book ever that I refused to finish. I have no respect for this guy there wasn't much to begin with, anyway.

    19. Although I haven't listened in awhile, Ellismate's radio show is definitely one of my favorite guilty pleasures. This book does not disappoint. Red Dragons!

    20. Heard his interview on Stern which was very dynamic. So I did expect a lot more punch from the book. It was ok but not as raw as the interview lead me to believe

    21. Easy read, not much substance, not well written to sy the least. The shoddy writing may be the reason this book is so enjoyable though.
