How Not to Be a Dick, by Meghan Doherty

There are a lot of dicks in the world; sometimes they are dicks on purpose, and sometimes they simply do not know any better.  Everyone could benefit from this simple, straightforward guide on how to avoid acts of dickery. Sound, solid advice, delivered in a playful, light hearted manner.

I love books that does not take life too seriously, so this book was right up my alley.  Somewhat modeled after the straight-laced etiquette and advice books from the 50s, this book is fun and sassy.  Yet at its very heart, this is a great book with advice that every human should follow.  Imagine how much better our world would be if everyone reduced their dickish behavior by even 15%.

This book caused me to laugh out loud numerous times, not only because the writing is so witty and clever, but also because the commentary on human behavior is so spot on accurate.  The book is perfect for older teens and young adults, because it addresses some situations that may be new to them, such as dickery in the workplace.  

All in all, I thought this was a fun little read, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humor.
