Review Jersey Shore Star’s Book in One Sentence

Sometimes a special kind of celebrity book will actually anticipate bad reviews before they are written.

Jersey Shore star Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino will publish his first book next month, Here’s the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades, and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore. Jezebel summed up the book in a zinging headline: “The Literary Equivalent Of An Ed Hardy Tee.”

The post features excerpts from the book, and The Situation baits (and then taunts) critics. Add your snappy one-sentence review of his upcoming book in the comments section.

Here’s more an excerpt: “Whenever you attempt to do something extraordinary in your life,whenever you put yourself out there in an attempt to succeed and in turn risk falling flat on your face, there are going to be people on the sidelines second-guessing you and making fun of you as a mechanism to disguise their own fear and envy for the life they’re watching you achieve. Those people are called haters. Attention, haters: It’s been a lot longer than fifteen minutes.”
