Doherty presents an entertaining, illustrated guide on being a human being, and not – a dick. The guide is divided into chapters which present different situations and provide advice on how to effectively be a courteous and kind person in each. Doherty also provides illustrations and humorous, relevant references to exemplify her advice.
This book is great if you’re ever unsure how to deal with a tough situation — everything from having roommate to online dating is addressed. When reading through you may find yourself thinking “Hey! I do that! I didn’t realize it was dickish!” — that’s ok. Now you know. Doherty also provides a helpful section in the end that helps you identify certain kinds of “dicks”, so you can avoid both interacting with one and becoming one.
Overall the book is easy to read, has pictures (yay!), is funny, and offers helpful advice. Keep it around for when you need it!
