Description
Nerd superstar Chris Hardwick offers his fellow "creative obsessives" crucial information needed to come out on top in the current Nerd uprising.

As a lifelong member of "The Nerd Herd," as he calls it, Chris Hardwick has learned all there is to know about Nerds. Developing a system, blog, and podcasts, Hardwick shares hard-earned wisdom about turning seeming weakness into world-dominating strengths in the hilarious self-help book, The Nerdist Way.

From keeping their heart rate below hummingbird levels to managing the avalanche of sadness that is their in-boxes; from becoming evil geniuses to attracting wealth by turning down work, Hardwick reveals the secrets that can help readers achieve their goals by tapping into their true nerdtastic selves.

Here Nerds will learn how to:

  • Become their own time cop
  • Tell panic attacks to go suck it
  • Use incremental fitness to ward off predators

    A Nerd's brain is a laser-it's time they learn to point and fire!

          November 7, 2011
          Readers familiar with Hardwick’s gig years ago on MTV’s Singled Out and his work more recently on Nerdist.com and G4TV’s Web Soup might appreciate this effort at self-help for the masses. He wants to get people to “know more about who are, why should be comfortable with that, and how to leverage those attributes into getting the things want…Oh, and achieving happiness. That’s kind of a big one, too.” Those new to Hardwick’s world, however, will neither be impressed with what he says or how he says it: the narrative is not compelling, and he tends to ramble. Discussion is divided into three broad categories: mind, body, and time. Chapters cover workout routines, healthy eating, and amusing cartoon bears weightlifting and stretching. Sections on time management and personal finance are similarly superficial. A personality-driven endeavor aimed at a built-in audience, his recommendations are straightforward without offering anything new or profound. (Nov.) Agency: Foundry
