A$$HOLE by Martin Kihn (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“A$$hole is remarkably profane, laugh-out-loud funny, and surprisingly sentimental. Marty Kihn is one Grade A A$$hole.” (Rory Freedman, coauthor of 'Skinny Bitch')
Marty Kihn was the nicest guy in the world, until he got fed up with being passed over for promotions, suckered into favors, and disrespected by the guy who sold him his morning coffee. On the day he turned forty, Kihn set out to transform himself from beta male to alpha male to a*****e.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Malcolm Hillgartner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

Marty Kihn was the nicest guy in the world, until he got fed up with being passed over for promotions at work, tired of being suckered into walking his neighbor’s dog, and sick of being disrespected by the man who sold him his morning coffee. On the day he turned forty, Kihn set out to transform himself from Mr. Nice Guy into a rule-breaking, power-mongering, Fox News–watching a*****e.
A*****e is the story of Kihn’s ascent from beta male to alpha male to a*****e. From acting lessons to fight training, from hiring a life coach to covertly observing his nemesis at work, Kihn discloses the techniques that helped him hone his image as a jerk.
Complete with quizzes, charts, and bulleted lists, A*****e is for anyone who’s ever felt like a chump and secretly longs to release his inner a*****e.
