As a true misanthrope, someone who has trouble finding the desire to be around people (to exist in the world in general), due to the ludicrous nature of humanity, I found this book to be a slap in the face.
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.
