NEW YORK (AP) — So here’s The Situation, in a book.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, the sculpted star of the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore,” has a book coming out in November about tanning salons, protein and other secrets to the good life.

Gotham Books describes the book with tongue firmly in cheek. It says “Here’s the Situation” is the perfect guide to “living everyday like an episode of ‘Jersey Shore.”‘

The show chronicles the lives of a group of tanned, party-crazy twentysomethings living together in a beach house.

Sorrentino says he received his nickname of “The Situation” after he developed his six pack set of abs.

Gotham is an imprint of Penguin Group (USA).
