Posted June 30, 2009, 5:01 PM EST: This book is a MUST READ for anyone looking for some cheap entertainment. John Wylie captures your attention from page 1, and leaves you wanting WAY more by the end of it all. This book tells a great story of a Scottish immigrant who comes to the United States and lives the corporate life. Fast cars, private jets, fast women, and unfortunately for Mr. Wylie - world class drinks! A D.U.I changes his world upside down, and will make you think twice about getting one. This book should be a must read for all teenagers before they are given a drivers license. I HIGHLY recommend this classic!

This review is from: D.U.I: Don't Underestimate It! (Paperback)

This book was recommended to me by a friend.I used to be an avid reader but had not read a book in years.I had a look at the back and discovered the author was from the same part of the world as me.So I thought I would read a page or two.It was a nice sunny day so I thought I would take a small refreshment with me and head for the garden.Three or more small refreshments later I had finished the book.It was a spellbinding read,I could not not stop turning the pages.After reading the book I could not get it out of my head,my mind kept wandering back to it and the life the author had lead.A truly amazing read.I'm sure there will be a sequel and I will be queuing up to buy it.
