This is a fun novel plenty of subtle absurdity and uite humorous I enjoyed it but it s certainly not the best thing one can read I liked it it was a bit slow but I guess the book meant to me cause of the stage of my life that I m currently at Thought it takes an asshole to move forward only to realize that it adds no real value in the end which is inda the point the author is trying to illustrate I don t normally review a book before I ve finished reading it but this is one of those times I would place it on the top of my list of books everyone must read but for two reasons I won t First of all because I don t think most people need any help being assholes one look at social media will show you this is true Secondly I want to be top asshole so if I could buy up every copy of this The Medieval Forest kidnap Mr Kihn andeep the secrets of assholery all to myself I would But since I don t want to be in prison and become someone else s asshole I think I ll just leave a stellar review and eep it at that Now for the next half of the book Eh 35 Pretty funny Although I am already an asshole I got tips on how to become a better one This was actually uite an enjoyable book to read and once I realized that it s very unlikely that the author is attempting to be prescriptive to his readers one can enjoy the stories much I think if the subtitle got rid of the and how you can too it would be at least a 4 star book A nice rendition of a guy s life who was a pushover and started taking ownership of his life If I gave the book a higher rating I probably wouldn t be asshole. Nice guys pushovers soft touches and suckersTired of being walked all over When the waiter brings you something you didnâ€™t.
