SAM follows an average American male, Zack Hardiman, as he slowly discovers the nature of American culture. It begins when he discovers that he is surrounded by unrelenting advertising everywhere he goes. So he goes nuts. He recovers and soon tours through the adventures of buying a gas guzzling car, visiting the National Parks, that have been taken over by gigantic corporations and eventually becomes engrossed in the effort to get STUFF. It is a happy story though because eventually Zack gets married, has a home with a white picket fence and 2.5 children. Oh, and there's a Clif Notes (yes, that's the way it's spelled in the book) at the back of the book to help lazy high school students who don't want to read the whole thing. I guess I should also mention that some of the main characters in the book are break-dancing, Pepsi drinking microbes.
Once upon a time, Zack Hardiman, a typical American male, attempted to find a shirt for jogging that contained absolutely no advertising. This became the first step in his descent into insanity. When he recovered, he slowly began a more extensive trip along the winding road we call American Culture. Although SEX and the AMERICAN MALE is not a fairy tale, it does include a happy ending with a married couple, a white picket fence and 2.5 children. SEX and the AMERICAN MALE is a satirical jab at how advertising, politics, greed and more overwhelm the public and shape our society. This humorous book parodies everything from advertisements that use sex to sell massive gas-guzzling cars to mindless political parties and juiced-up science fiction conventions. When you buy SEX and the AMERICAN MALE not only will you have a funny, quick read for that next cross-country flight, but you’ll also be able to say things like “Why yes, I enjoyed SEX on my last flight” and other quips (you’ll have to come up with those on your own). Oh, and sorry. There is no SEX in SEX and the AMERICAN MALE. It’s just another joke the author uses to test American’s reading and analytical skills. Buy SEX and see if you pass the test. Buy SEX and enjoy it tonight. Buy SEX…well, you get it.
