Death to All Cheerleaders

(2000)
A non fiction book by

 
Before he was a #1 Amazon.com bestselling humorist and a contributor to The New York Times, Esquire, Playboy, and MTV News, Marty Beckerman ("laugh-out-loud" - USA Today) was a sarcastic teenager from tropical Anchorage, Alaska, who had a column in the local newspaper and zero f***s to give. Week after week, he skewered high school rites of passage, decried adolescent superficiality, and chronicled his own hopeless attempts to get a date. In 2000, at age 17, Beckerman collected his cynical tirades into a book that went Web 1.0 viral, shipped 1,000 copies from his parents' basement, and launched his career as a professional writer who sometimes even puts on pants before noon.

Fifteen years later, this expanded and revised edition - with 20,000 words of bonus content from 1998-2001 - showcases the comedic origins of "the most famous author from Alaska," according to Business Insider. (For the record, Beckerman - now a semi-mature adult man - no longer has a problem with cheerleaders, and even admits they're probably okay people. We all lose our ideals eventually.)

"Funny stuff . . . Marty is a very precocious smart-ass with a mean streak of cynicism . . ." - New York Press

"[A] hilarious gash against hypocrisy . . ." - PopMatters

"His articles show the evils in this world as he sees them, and take us through the typical teenage rites of passage. . . . His talent, wit, and confrontational nature promise him a bright future." - The Mitzpeh (University of Maryland)

"Once the initial shock of Beckerman's profanity and hatred wears off, there are some highly readable and humorous gags. . . . Frequently hilarious." - The Anchorage Daily News

"Beckerman is able to have you rolling on the floor in a convulsive fit of relentless laughter. . . . It is very well worth the cost. Don't miss out on this one." - Union Weekly (California State University, Long Beach)
