Description

Essential (and emotionally intelligent) etiquette tips are packaged here alongside hilarious "Dick and Jane"–style illustrations. Laugh and learn.

On the one hand, nobody wants to be a dick. On the other hand, dicks are everywhere! They cut in line, talk behind our backs, recline into our seats, and even have the power to morph into trolls online. Their powers are impressive, but with a little foresight and thoughtfulness, we can take a stand against dickishness today.

How Not to Be a Dick
is packed with honest and straightforward advice, divided into the categories of relationships, home, school, work, play, in transit, and on the internet. Paired with this essential wisdom are playful illustrations showing two well-meaning (but not always well behaved) young people as they confront moments of potential dickishness in their everyday lives. Sometimes they falter, sometimes they triumph, but they always seek to find a better way. And with their help, you can too.
