About The Book
A collection of essays, carefully and considerately put together to help you navigate life without being a massive tool.
Don’t Be a Dick will help you treat others better and, perhaps most importantly, it will also help you be less of a dick to yourself.
The world is overwhelming and fast paced and we’re forever being overloaded with information, adverts and things that beep for no discernable good reason. Given everything that is thrust at us daily, I don’t think it is a surprise that we’re all dicks to one another. This book is about slowing down, evaluating how we treat one another and putting more conscious thought into how we navigate life. Split into easily digestible and clearly marked chapters like “Don’t Make Boring Powerpoint Presentations” and “Don’t Take on Too Much” and “Don’t be a Racist”, you can read the book from cover-to-cover, or you can just go straight to the bit you need help with (“Don’t Send Unsolicited Dick Pics” is Chapter 23) and I can cure you JUST LIKE THAT.
If, like me, you have been a bit of a dick in the past, that’s OK. This book isn’t about shame or punishment, it’s about forgiveness and self love. It’s ok if you were a dick, but it ends now.
