New York Times Bestseller (New York Times)
“The book is fantastic. . . . Hilariously illustrated.” (The Brian Lehrer Show, NPR)
“Useful observations about life in New York City . . . the tips work as well for tourists as they do for transplants.” (Associated Press)
“Every obsessive-compulsive New Yorker should circulate copies of Nathan W. Pyle’s “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette”… For a newcomer, he gets it. His helpful hints are particularly sensible these days when people preoccupied with digital devices seem oblivious to everyone around them.” (New York Times)
“The hilarious cartoons in Nathan Pyle’s new book… are even funnier as animated GIFs. Pyle’s do’s and don’ts perfectly depict what makes New Yorkers tick.” (Fodor's Travel)
“Full of useful advice… do’s and don’ts… and sage realisms… NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette by Nathan W. Pyle is equal parts funny and informative.” (NewYorkNatives.com)
Living in New York City for five years as a transplant from Ohio, illustrator and T-shirt designer Nathan Pyle was fascinated by the unique habits and unspoken customs New Yorkers follow to make life bearable in a city with 8 million people (and seemingly twice the number of tourists). Nathan decided to draw his favorite tips and etiquette lessons and post them on the internet, where his 12 original panels went viral immediately and became the basis for this hilarious illustrated book (check out the fully animated ebook, too!).
In NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette, Pyle reveals the secrets and unwritten rules for living in and visiting New York including the answers to such burning questions as, which cabs should I try to hail? What is a bodega? Which way is Uptown? Why are there so many doors in the sidewalk? How do I walk on an escalator? Do we need to be touching right now? Where should I inhale or exhale while passing sidewalk garbage? How long should I honk my horn? If New York were a game show, how would I win? What happens when I stand in the bike lane? Who should get the empty subway seats? How do I stay safe during a trash tornado? Each tip is a little story illustrated in simple black and white drawings.
Visitors and newcomers to New York will love it because the advice is smart, funny, and not condescending. New Yorkers will love it for its strategic and humorous approach to mastering the daily chaos of the city.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

I'm shaking my finger at the publisher. Don't offer a kindle version if you won't bother to format it correctly. It made me mad enough to write a one-star review, but that would penalize the author, and be totally unfair. I wish I had ordered a hard copy instead.
I'm into classic graphic novels and illustration (think of old RAW/Spieglman era), and was intrigued by the approach.
I'm also a New Yorker (Bed Stuy denizen at the moment), and have had an interest in street etiquette for a long time; "Move to the side if you're going to stop, nice tourists". I worked on 40th and B-Way for years, and really saw the need for some sort of pamphlet for visitors.
This book exceeded my expectations. It's written with humor and wit, and really captures a lot of what it means to be a New Yorker. I found myself agreeing with and remembering literally ALL of the situations presented in this book. I also saw my failures, and realized that I already knew the rules of the street... it's a GREAT book for both native and toursits.
The illustrations are great. I like the use of black (I'm a Charles Burns fan),
This is a strong first entry from Nathan Pyle; I expect some more amazing work from him in the future. I am now a fan of his work.
(I'd love a hardcover copy, signed by the author.... it'd go into my collection)
