Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Chris Illuminati is a freelance writer and fulltime a**hole. He's a regular contributor to sites such as AskMen.com and The BachelorGuy.com, and pretends to be witty daily on www.chrisilluminati.com. He lives at home with his wife and son.

More About the Author

Chris Illuminati --yes, that's his real name, so let's get it out of the way now and move on-- is an author, a blogger, a stand-up comic and a pop culture commentator.

He is the former editor of a men's lifestyle site. He is also a stand-up comic who has taken the stage and performed at Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand and New York Comedy Club. One of his tweets was christened as one of the funniest jokes of 2013 by The New York Post, which is better than being in paper for, say, doing something really dumb, offensive, or that comes with any sort of jail time, right?

If the New York Post editorial staff "gets" him and his humor, chances are you will, too.

Illuminati isn't afraid to put it all out there and let it all hang out, with the "it" being his personal experience. Whether it's the digital space or on stage during his act, he is comfortable mining his personal life and real life as he knows as source material for his work.

As an author, Illuminati has published several books, including Assholeology: The Science of Getting Your Way And Getting Away With It (2010) with two co-authors; Assholeology: The Cheat Sheet (2011); and Thank You for Not Laughing (2012). The former works are a guidebooks and a field guide about the art of being, well, an ass, and the latter is a collection of notes from his personal journals.

His next book -- The New Dad Dictionary: Everything He Really Needs to Know - from A to Z -- will be published in April, 2015.

As a blogger, pop culture commentator, and writer whose words often live on the glorious w-w-w, Illuminati's work has appeared in a variety of sources and in front of millions of eyeballs, among them BroBible, AskMen, Men's Health, Cosmo, Nerve, Maxim, Uproxx, Huffington Post, Guyism, The Good Man Project and Penthouse.

But wait. That's not all.

Illuminati muses on his role, responsibilities, and unique experiences as a parent who is essentially learning on the job in his hilarious yet poignant A Message With a Bottle website, which pulls in over 200,000 new visitors each month and even raked in a whopping 2.3 million views in June 2014.

In addition to writing about life -but not in a reality TV kinda way, of course- Illuminati has also published several works of fiction that have appeared in online literary journals.

Essentially, Chris Illuminati has a lot to say about a lot of topics, like most of us, but he does so with humor, informed opinion, and with a grasp on what's happening in pop culture, running it through a personal filter. That combination makes most of what he writes and says relatable and able to elicit a chuckle more often than not.

And yes, it's his real name.

I laughed the whole way through!

A great book for the man in your life who needs to grow a pair, or the guy who needs to refine his jerky ways.
Megan Powell
A witty, comedic view of the world that the reader can relate to... Very funny book.

This follow up to the debut Assholeology is as easy to read as the first. It is written so that it can be understood by all, but doesn't feel dumbed down at all. If you have the first book, you MUST have this one. If you don't have the first one, get this one, and you'll love it so much, you'll go buy the first one. Promise.

The first book Assholeology: The Science Behind Getting Your Way - and Getting Away with it told you what you already kinda knew to be true, but didn't really know how or why. This is the 'Applied Science' of being an A**hole in real life. If this book were to have come out 10 years ago I swear I would be making more money driving a sports car - these little nuggets of truth are MONEY! Buy this now or forever remain a loser.

I purchased the book for my husband, and I found myself picking it up again and again until I read the book from cover to cover. I laughed the whole way through! My husband has the first book, and this book is even funnier than the first. Buy it!!!

This little book is even better than the original A**hology book. A lot of this stuff would take balls as big as church bells to do. One of my favorites; taking your dad to a strip club so you can blackmail him later...this is gold! I hope to see more from this author, he didn't need the other two when writing the original, Mr. Illuminati is a genius.

Format: Paperback
Author Chris Illuminati returns with a CliffsNotes-esque self-help guide loaded with the real life scenarios that can test the spirit of any aspiring a******.

Illuminati, a regular contributor to Penthouse and Details, delivers a pocket-sized sequel to A******ology: The Science Behind Getting Your Way - and Getting Away with it. Think of it as a "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" instruction manual that can help you hang with the Wolf Pack.

In case you confuse the difference, Illuminati provides regular tips called "Don't be a Douche." For example, he writes, "If you're out of college, older than twenty-one, and don't have lacrosse practice, you shouldn't shop at Hollister, Abercrombie, or any other trendy kiddie stores. Only a douche dresses younger than it says on his driver's license."

My wife's magazines - Health, Sunset and Prevention - dominate the reading selection in our bathroom. This book is a perfect antidote. The sequel's smaller size is a handy restroom companion, fitting nicely atop a tank lid or wedged behind a roll of toilet paper.
