Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The rules of engagement for adolescents change rapidly from year to year and from school to school - but that there are some things that pretty much everyone needs to know: how to behave at a party, for instance, or how to engage with someone of a different background, or how to ("pardon me") pass gas in a dignified manner, as the occasion demands. Done in the retro style of the perennially popular 1940's "Dick and Jane" series, How Not to Be a DICK offers practical and helpful tips for navigating difficult social situations, and conveys its message with comedy and ease, using the tone and illustration style of the same period. The contrast between the innocent-looking characters and the real-talk advice on offer here allows the book to address difficult and complex situations without being overbearing or preachy. With illustrations throughout that enable easy navigation—especially for those with short attention spans (Thank you, Twitter)—this book is sure to be a modern classic.

Synopsis:

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

Synopsis:

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, but it also includes 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.
