Professional Idiot: A Memoir by Stephen "Steve-O" GloverIts mind-blowing to me how utterly far gone Steve-O was, and how he looks back on it in this book with such intelligence, humor, and searing honesty. What a truly unbelievable life.
From his early days videotaping crazy skateboard stunts to starring in the Jackass movies, there was little that Stephen Steve-O Glover wouldnt do. Whether it was stapling his nutsack to his leg or diving into a pool full of elephant crap, almost nothing was out of bounds. As the stunts got crazier, his life kept pace. He developed a crippling addiction to drugs and alcohol, and an obsession with his own celebrity that proved nearly as dangerous. Only an intervention and a visit to a psychiatric ward saved his life. Today he has been clean and sober for more than three years.
Professional Idiot recounts the lunacy, the debauchery, the stunts, the drug addiction, and the path to recovery with bravado, humor, and heart.
A great book to read before you get on the roller coaster to hell, if you plan on surviving to tell about it like Steve-O did.
