Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Drunk Talk by Mike Davis and TL Banks is a humorous collection of short narratives and ramblings on different topics. From talking about celebrities to racism, the authors share their two cents about everything and anything in between. It is funny because I often ramble about the same things when I am not even drunk. What authors TL Banks and Mike Davis share is common sense, things that we should be aware of, and most of the time, we already think of the same things. This book is one of those moments when you and your companion are in synch or share the same brain cell.

The narrative is light, simple, and relatable. The tone is humorous, witty, and written attractively. Instead of sounding obnoxious, the authors sound sincere and friendly. The quotes in chapter 47 are relatable gems. My favorite chapters were Two-faced (because yes, we are different with every person), Mostly Water (hilarious), Utopia (sad but true), Parents (I fear it every single day), and Labels (because we need that validation sometimes). All these chapters have a message hidden between the humor and charming ramblings. We all think these things, but we shy away from saying them because we are afraid of being judged. Readers will enjoy this quick, short book not only because it is funny, but because it is what we want to hear sometimes to feel a little better. Mike Davis and TL Banks have done a good job! I loved it, enjoyed it, and have already recommended it!

Drunk Talk looks at the world in a deeper and more relaxed way. If you are confused because you are trying to understand the world and you suspect that the answer is not in religion, money, or love, this book is for you. Mike Davis and TL Banks make an open claim for those who want to see the truth beyond the supposed sobriety in which we live. Drunk Talk has different humor, is very enjoyable, and explains facts in a way so that you can accept them from a new point of view. It clearly expresses how many of the regulations of society are absurd, but at the same time, they are so common that we no longer realize how logical they are. Drunk Talk will give you unexpected life advice that otherwise wouldn't have had the same impact.

I really enjoyed the honesty of Drunk Talk. I felt very comfortable reading this book. Mike Davis and TL Banks are original in their writing. Their way of expressing themselves is like listening to your best friend, who speaks to you without fear of using pointed words. Drunk Talk encourages one to question many social aspects and to want to take action to get out of the absurd restrictions and prejudices that are learned throughout life. We all have different points of view on the same problem, but our perception is our reality, and this nevertheless is the reality around us. The book expresses it in many different ways with a rather peculiar touch of humor.

If you're looking for some deep-seated wisdom to change your outlook on the world or life in general, grab yourselves a copy of Drunk Talk by Mike Davis and T.L. Banks. Through over forty short discussion pieces and more than a hundred original quotes, Mike Davis and T.L. Banks provide some much-needed wisdom for the ages that you wouldn't find anywhere else, other than perhaps having a drink with your closest friends at the local bar or pub. The pieces cover a plethora of different topics, including celebrities, happiness, murder, old people, gay people, slaves, racism, the Big Bang Theory, parents, and much more. The authors infuse each piece with a healthy dose of humor and make it resemble one of those discussions you have with your friends after downing your third or fourth drink.

Drunk Talk is one of those books that not only offer a wonderful usage of your time but also surprisingly leave a lot to ponder about. Authors Mike Davis and T.L. Banks' pieces take on a myriad of different topics and subject matter, covering almost every aspect that encompasses life. Each piece is unique and provides readers with a fresh and possibly drunk outlook on something they probably have already discussed with their friends or loved ones in everyday life. This is definitely one of the most creative and entertaining books I've read this year. I had an absolute blast reading Drunk Talk. If you're looking for something imaginative and thoroughly authentic to spend your evening with, I highly recommend it.

Have you ever heard that in wine, there is truth? I guess so, and if you already have an idea of what it means, Drunk Talk by Mike Davis and TL Banks is the book for you. In its 48 sections - or rather, discussions - the authors collect conversations they had when they were drunk and were in the company of other drunkards. Among the themes debated in this uncommon perspective, we find curse words, evil, money, educated society, art, and even the Big Bang Theory. All of this will show you the world from a different, even provocative, point of view.

Drunk Talk is a fun book that will let you explore the world of the discussions between drunk people. Mike Davis and TL Banks do not mince words and desecrate everything that is possible to desecrate, criticize everything that is possible to criticize, and debunk myths. Many discussions amazed me. Among them, I list the one on happiness (which we discover does not exist), the one on power and shoes (I did not expect to find them together), and the one on slaves (which is perhaps the most provocative of all). Reading the book, we must never forget that the authors intend to make us read conversations among drunkards; otherwise, we risk not being able to enjoy the humor of the discussions. If you keep this in mind, you will appreciate Drunk Talk as much as it deserves. I recommend it if you are looking for an unusually entertaining book.

Science, psychology, humor, and existential truths are profoundly discussed under the influence of alcohol in Drunk Talk by Mike Davis and T.L. Banks. These are 48 short discussions about the different aspects of life with an unlimited supply of humor plus words of wisdom that will make you wonder if we truly are better off sober or if we are smarter while alcohol flows in our bloodstream. Think of this book as a creative way of ranting, as it is designed to take an in-depth look at the world around you. Every section is a conversation that the authors had with other drunks while they were, of course, drunk themselves. There are no sacred cows here. Everything is a large target through the sniper scope of a drunk who truly has something to say.

Mike Davis and T.L. Banks have crafted a literary original here. I find it fascinating in the sense that there has been a number of published medical articles on the psychology of drunk talk and if drinking really makes you spit out the truth. Drunk Talk is perhaps the solid proof that you need because these conversations are testaments to freed-up tongues that say exactly what is in the speakers’ hearts. You can almost hear the slurring and smell the smell of alcohol on the breaths of the participants in these discussions, yet you don’t want to stop reading because you are having fun. I am willing to bet you would even pop a can of beer or take a swig of single malt in a shot glass while reading this book because it makes you feel that you belong. Readers who love books with brutal honesty will absolutely love the humor, wisdom, and outright frankness of this book, while snowflakes should keep a wide berth.
