Overview

Misanthrope, n.: 1.) One who hates mankind; a curmudgeon; a loner; 2.) The guy in your office who responded to your e-mail of baby photos with "D-. Passing, but not college material"; 3.) A Realist
From The Misanthrope's Guide to Life

In this guide, you'll learn how to get away from the pain-in-the-asses who make you seriously consider investing in a fallout shelter and making it your new home. You'll take isolated comfort in these survival strategies, including how to:

  • Conduct managed incoherence to get the delivery boy from the lobby to your door
  • Take a "French leave" in order to eat alone at work
  • Get ousted from your kickball league by dressing as Magnum, P.I. for every game
  • Get back at the jerk yapping on his cell phone by reciting the lyrics to Harry Chapin's version of "Cat's in the Cradle"
  • End a conversation by "Gwynething" (also known as playing the "I'm delightfully foreign" act) someone to death

This is the survival guide you will be annoyed not to have.

Meet the Author

Meghan Rowland, a group-therapy dropout, was the only girl in kindergarten with a John Larroquette lunchbox. Chris Turner-Neal, an only child, is a graduate of James B. Bonham Middle School, where he received an F in participation. Together, they write the award-winning comedy blog 2birds1blog.com, a collection of crass musings, investigative reporting, and sarcasm widely hailed as "the thinking man's Beavis and Butthead." Sharing an author bio is an uncomfortably intimate experience for both of them.

    Too long have we been stuck with books suggesting a good attitude and social graces are required. I don't have those things and I am not invested in getting them any time soon.
    After spending a few hours laughing with every chapter in this book, it became clear that there is a subculture of us misanthropes, and we clearly have found our leader in Meg and Chris. Unfortunately we seem to have deep seeding distain for groups or public meetings. Therefore knowing others have read this book is as close as its going to get to a social gathering.

    The Ponys

    Pinkie Pie looked at Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash. "It's because Rarity is a good tracker!" Rarity pops out of the bush with Apple Bloom. Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle nod.

    Loved it!

    I have never laughed out loud while reading a book, that is until I read this. I never realized there was an actual term for one who basically dislikes everyone else. Now I know, and now I know I am definitely a misanthrope.

    Laugh out loud

    Never heard of these guys or their blog before. After reading this book, I am hooked. Read the book. It was VERY funny. Can't wait to read other books.

    Like a Fangirl Stalking RobPatt

    From start to finish this gem is knee slapping, in your face honesty, with a touch of clASS. Meghan and Chris separated are more fun then throwing darts at a theater full of Twilight fans. Combined they are page upon page of "real life right in your face no time to waste just jump in the car lets go" comedy.

    Yea you probably didn't understand what in the world I am talking about but oh well, "sorr about the bag." Just read the book, study the book, and when you are done....buy the next book. NOW!
