Attention, guys of America: It’s time to get off the couch, turn off the PlayStation, and set down your beer (just kidding—never set down your beer). Your days of freedom are numbered. Every guy owes it to himself to do something audacious, ostentatious, hilarious, or just plain fun before it’s too late. The time is now for the kinds of things that will be decidedly against the rules after you “settle down.” Die Happy is here to help you create the kind of stories you’ll be telling for the rest of your life. Stories about things like:

· How you spent your graduation cash: You start at Oktoberfest in Munich and wake up on a Thai beach (which is totally what your Aunt Edith had in mind). From Fantasy Fest to La Tomatina, here’s a breakdown of the wildest parties and the craziest worldwide destinations.
· The best places to, ahem, explore other cultures (or whatever): Corfu’s Pink Palace. Ireland’s pubs. Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Ibiza. Plus plenty of other fascinating events and locales, many of which also happen to serve booze.
· Getting a job (don’t worry, not a real job): Jet Ski guy. Cruise ship bartender. Casino dealer. Lifeguard. Roadie. Where and how to earn the money to subsidize your fun, usually in some exotic location full of very friendly women.

At once a “How To,” a “To Do,” and a “We Did,” Die Happy contains all the ideas, checklists, and insanely funny true stories you’ll need to help you have as much fun as possible—while you still can.

Tim is married but still ""fight(ing) the good fight"" and Michael is ""still a free man."" They take advantage of their different points of view, banking on Tim's nostalgia for his bachelor days and Michael's determination to take full advantage of the time he has left.
