Really? An etiquette book for teens? Yes, really, you butt-faced jerk! See, that right there is "dickish behavior," a timeless plague for which Doherty has a cabinet full of cures. The atmosphere is pure Dick-and-Jane: fussy early-reader prose married to bland clip-art-style illustrations starring a deadpan boy and girl. Through these oldfangled characters, Doherty fires absurd twenty-first century zingers that happen to be really, really, really funny. (When was the last time you LOL'd at a nonfiction book?) Droll humor is one thing, but does Doherty deliver substance? Shockingly, she does, offering teens blunt, no-nonsense advice on the adult world that awaits them. Examples: dont stare at a female's boobs during conversation, avoid passive-aggressive Post-its, try to smell like "nothing in particular" if you work in the service industry, don't recline your airplane chair all the way, and on and on. She even drops some mega-wisdom bombs; regarding faith, she writes, "Believing in an idea is kind of like falling in love with a person—it just seems right, even if we can't explain it. Given the emphasis on roommates, office parties, and alcohol, this is clearly the gift book for next year's high-school and college grads. After all, we all need the occasional reminder that peeing in the shower is wrong. —Booklist

Just an etiquette guide...not really that funny 30. Oktober 2013
Von Miss Sam, the Librarian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Not at all what I expected, which was something hilarious and crude, a satire. It is just a simple guide to etiquette, albeit with more mentions of "dick" and "dickishness" than most Emily Post titles. The advice is great and if someone did bother to read it, they would learn some very good behaviors. But it is really more of a gift book than a goofy book.

This book is probably a good gift for a college graduate since it covers topics such as workplace behavior, parties, sex, and sharing apartments.

Miss Manners for the Clueless 3. Oktober 2013
Von Eric K. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Designed to resemble an old book of manners that a kid in the 1950s may have read, this book is more of a humor book, although it does have some pretty good tips on manners that I'm quite certain everyone would benefit from. Despite the illustrations of children on the cover and throughout the book, and despite it being classified as a "young adult/YA" book, I would *not* consider this a book for kids. There is foul language throughout (hello, look at the title!). It is a great gag gift, though, for your favorite dickish friend, sibling, or co-worker in their college years or 20s. It's also a great gift for that secret someone that you despise seeing every day. Just wrap it up and leave it where they'll find it with no trace back to you.

There are some pretty handy, common sense tips for clueless people. Included are tips for relationships, being at home, being at school, the work environment, out and about having fun (parties, restaurants, clubs, etc.), driving/riding public transportation, and using the Internet. While humorous at times, there is also a lot of good information included, everything from bathroom etiquette to how to be kind to your waiter to the consequences of sexting.

Why did I buy this book? As a Christmas present for one of my best friends. Who also happens to be a dick.

Required Reading for Every Human 1. Oktober 2013
Von Katie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book should be on everyone's reference shelf - sure, it's witty, hilarious and whimsically-illustrated, but there are also invaluably important truths tucked within its pages. In the familiar style of old cub scout guides, Doherty efficiently and hilariously schools folks on the etiquette of everyday living.

Lessons on self-respect, co-habitation, friendship, office politics, hygiene and much more are presented with conversation bubble commentary from the book's Dick and Jane characters - you can easily flip to any page and chuckle, and you'll quickly find yourself absorbed by the conversational language and eye-catching layout.

This is a great gift (especially if you'd like to drop a veiled hint), but it's also an important text that gently and kindly touches upon a spectrum of social and personal issues. Now, go forth - and don't be a dick!

Preventive Measures 19. Dezember 2013
Von B. Caruso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
The world would be more mellow, more joyful, more productive without so many dicks ruining the calm and the fun for the rest of us.
Sadly, most of the dicks won't read "How Not To Be A Dick", but I take comfort that this book could be a preventive measure, in some small way.

How Not To Be A Dick reads like a holistic The No A**hole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't, aimed at younger folks who aren't yet, or are just joining the workforce. Their are tips on how to get ready for work as well as tips on how to handle it when you didn't do your homework. It has applicable tips and skills and rules for most folks, but I think this is a fantastic match for 10-22 year olds (as a gift, perhaps?)...

My only negative thought is the use of the word "Dick". "Dick" would make me hesitate giving this to most kids under 18 or so. I think Jerk would have been less attention grabbing, but more appropriate considering the age range of the material within.

"How Not To Be A Dick: An Everyday Etiquette Guide" takes most of the practical advice on functioning in the world, that my son needs most (he's 10), and lays it out so cleanly and simply that this will be replacing "The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules" on our "quick reference" shelf near our kitchen table.

Fantastic book. Now if they offered a version with an alternate word choice, I'd be 100% over the moon. This still gets an A in my book.

Important book 11. Oktober 2013
Von Julia Rohl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is an excellent book, not only for children and teens but us all - especially when it comes to all things e-etiquette. It is fun to read and has lovely illustrations. An important book.
