Professional Idiot: A Memoir
"It's amazing to me how far away Steve-O was and how he looks back on it in this book with such intelligence, humor and scornful honesty, what a truly incredible life."
– Johnny Knoxville
From his beginnings with doing crazy skateboard stunts to starring in the Donkey There was little in the movies that Stephen "Steve-O" Glover would not do. Whether he clipped his nutcup to his leg or plunged into a pond full of elephant shit, almost nothing was out of bounds. As the stunts became crazier, his life kept pace. He developed a debilitating addiction to drugs and alcohol and an obsession with his own celebrity that turned out to be almost as dangerous. Only surgery and a visit to a psychiatric ward saved his life. Today he has been clean and sober for more than three years.
Professional idiot It tells the madness, the debauchery, the stunts, the drug addiction and the way to recovery with bravado, humor and heart.
"A great book to read before you get into the roller coaster to hell, if you want to survive to tell how Steve-O did."
– Nikki Sixx, author of The heroin diaries
"This is the perfect book for people who hate to read."
– Tommy Lee, author of Tommy country
