I'm A Lebowski, You're A Lebowski - Life, The Big Lebowski, and What Have You is an absolutely delightful book that exposes readers to the the cultural quirks that are Lebowski Fests (and their attendees), and introduces you to the man whose rug really did tie the room together.

If you've enjoyed the movie as much or as often as myself, you are most likely already an Achiever. If not? Then get thee to your Netflix queue, now.
