The end did read a little false, as from my personal experience things just aren't that easy. But to hear that he lied about nearly everything, including the time he spent in jail. That sucks, James.
On a better note, I am currently in the middle of Hunter S. Thompson's Kingdom of Fear. Weird, but good.

Vonnegut fans should check this out. I think you'll enjoy it.
i read it recently, i thought it was hilarious. i found out about it when i was looking on his myspace (a tad creepy). i'd have to put it up there with a confederacy of dunces as one of the funniest books i've ever read. though i do think that the first half-or-so is the funnier than the second half.I wanted to comment on the book "Youth In Revolt" by C.D. Payne.
If any of you read that long interview with Michael Cera, he mentions this book and suggest that everyone run out and read it.
So I wanted a quick break in a series I was reading, so I picked it up to check it out.
Its actually a hilarious book. I remember being very wary of it, since I really knew nothing about it. But I hooked by like page 10. Its this diary of a 14 year old boy with a crappy family and a huge infatuation with everthing sex. It gets pretty crazy for a while, but does not let down on the humor. I will definitely recommend it if you like funny things (which, I'm going to assume you do)
Did anyone else listen to MC and check it out? What'd you think?
i checked this book out after seeing him promoting it on the daily show. i loved it, the list of 700 hobo names is one of the greatest things i've ever seen. also all the stuff about lobsters, eels, and classic cons.I'm currently reading "The Areas of My Expertise" by John Hodgman...It's basically an almanac of made-up facts; very funny.
