Excerpt from Introduction
Throughout history, there have been dicks. The kind of people who have the power to ruin even the nicest day. The kind of people who, when you’re just enjoying a soothing cut of hot coffee in the morning, rush in, knock that coffee all over your favorite sweater, and don’t even stop to help, much less apologize!
Dicks don’t stop to consider how their attitudes, actions, and words affect other people. Dicks are, as a rule, selfish and thoughtless. They take out their fears, frustrations, insecurities, and ignorance on others. Dicks have been the cause of wars, snide New Yorker articles, and upsetting comments on cute cat blog for as long as anyone can remember. That bully from grade school, that boss who promoted his fraternity brother over you, that kid in seventh grade who mocked your list – all dicks!
To be totally honest, we can all be dicks at times. We can all get caught up in our own world, forget about everyone else, and start acting like dicks. We all have bad days, and we all make mistakes, even when we mean well. What can you do?
Here’s what: Remember that we’re all in it together.

It was less of a joke book than I expected... but that is probably a good thing since my brother could certainly use some real, practical advice on how to be a decent human.
I would buy it again... should the need arise.
He's still a D, but he is a little more polite about it. So I'll consider that a win!
I would certainly suggest pairing this book with "How Not to Be an A-Hole". I'll also be the first to get in line for "How Not to Be a Dipshat" should it ever be printed.
The author really gets it when putting herself in the shoes of a bonafide D. She uses helpful language and suggestions on how to stop being a D without coming off as a condescending D herself. Meghan Doherty has mastered the art and I suggest this book as a gift for that special D in your life.

I enjoyed it. Not sure she did.
Very happy with my purchase though.
