The intro to the book is just a poorly written "love" story about how the two authors met when they were children and bonded over their supposed hatred of others (as well as love of cigarettes and alcohol, how cool). And then, the rest of the book, I s*** you not, is just kitschy joke "advice" about how the misanthrope should handle everyday life situations. 'What to do when you throw a party and you want everyone to leave'. I've never thrown a party, nor will I, due to my DISLIKE OF OTHER HUMANS. Hence, misanthropy.
It's incredibly obvious that the book is written by two hipsters who take an excessive amount of pride in standing out in a crowd, while still making absolutely sure that they are an integral part of the crowd. The hipster credo.
So if you're looking for a book to make you feel cooler than everyone else around you, to boost your self esteem and make you feel like you're not like everyone else, even though you think the same and act the same, then by all means grab this book.
But if you dislike humanity, have a hard time coping with the real world, and are looking for honest, intellectual help with how to deal with your anger and aggression towards a senseless world, I urge you to look elsewhere. This book will only aggravate those feelings.
best of luck,
Allen Leper Hampton
PS- A note to the authors: I destroyed your book so that no one else would have to read it again. I hope you see this.
By the time my relationship with Misanthropes was only a few chapters old, I felt like I must have had a stalker. I mean, I must have been tailed quite closely for the authors to have reached in to my soul and laid bare on a word processing program exactly who I am inside and what is right/wrong with me.
By the end of the book, I feel like I need to purchase multiple copies to give out to people who try to "get" me. Mom, sister, brother? Christmas is coming.

I don't like much of anything, but this was a good one. I could identify with much of it and it was well written and funny.Published on April 14, 2013 by Lisa Burrell
Quite entertaining, but I would have liked more serious discussion of the reasons that people display such hatred towards each other.Published on April 7, 2013 by Crest
This book was recommended by a colleague who I used to work with. We used to have conversations about strange people we knew and now we both understand them better, or do we.Published on January 9, 2013 by Paul
A complete waste of money. Infantile, lazy, poorly-written, unedited, sophomoric, shallow, pointless self-promotion. Not even worth free distribution, possibly self-published.Published on December 22, 2012 by Paul Wiener
