Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A delightfully evil gift, How to Be a Villain is a step-by-step guide to joining the forces of darkness. Because, though villains may never win, they sure have more fun, hatching master plans for world domination, smoothing their dastardly tights.

Neil Zawacki answers all the most urgent questions: Should I go with a black or red theme? Do I invest in an army of winged monkeys or ninja warriors? And just where will I put the evil hideout? Whether readers choose to pursue a career as a Criminal Mastermind, Mad Scientist, Corporate Bastard, or just a Wanna-be Evil Genius, they are sure to find plenty of tips for jumpstarting any evil enterprise.

Cheaper than attending the annual bad guy conference and way more fun than being good, How to Be a Villain is guaranteed to elicit deep-throated evil laughs across the land.

Synopsis:

The 'Good Citizen's Handbook' meets 'Emily: The Strange' in this mock handbook of villainy. The perfect gift for the newly partnered corporate lawyer, telemarketer, or Dr Evil fan in your life.

About the Author

Neil Zawacki is a California-based freelance writer who has long been interested in the plight of evil-doers. Generally considered to be quite villainous himself, he enjoys theater, literature, and world domination. This is his first book.

James Dignan's drawings have appeared in the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, and magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Marie Claire. He divides his evil-doing time between Australia and Europe.

Really. Who doesn't want to take over the world? Granted, this book is a bit campy and humorous, but shouldn't a potential dictator of the Earth have a strong sense of humor? Hence the evil laugh. Just get yourself some semi-reliable henchmen, an underground lair conveniently located beneath a dormant volcano, and perhaps a few sharks with friggin' laser tied to their heads!
