Overview

WELCOME YOUR NEW NERD OVERLORD

Attention, Nerds: You don’t have to be a stereotypical geekwad to appreciate the tenets of Nerdism and to make your innate talents for over-analysis and hyper-self-awareness work for you instead of agin you. Join Nerd superstar Chris Hardwick as he offers his fellow “creative-obsessives” the crucial information needed to come out on top in the current Nerd uprising.

As a lifelong member of “The Nerd Herd,” Chris Hardwick has learned all there is to know about Nerds. He’s studied them, lived with them, and has endeavored to milk their knowledge nectar and isolate its curative powers for what ails you. Thus, he has founded a philosophical system (and blog) called The Nerdist, and here he shares his hard-earned wisdom about turning seeming weaknesses into world-dominating strengths.

From keeping your heart rate below hummingbird levels to ignoring your brain, Hardwick reveals the secrets that can help you accomplish what you want by tapping into your true nerdtastic self. Remember, success is the most satisfying—and legal—form of vengeance there is. And you can achieve it…when you follow the Nerdist Way.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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 they are, why they should be comfortable with that, and how to leverage those attributes into getting the things they 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. Agency: Foundry

    Using Your Nerd Powers for Good

    Hardwick's advise for fellow "Nerdists" is an excellent kick in the pants to use our powers for good (self improvement) instead of evil (self pity). All of his ideas are simple to implement and can vastly change lives. Even integrating one suggestion into your life should have a profound impact. Highly recommended.

    If you are a nerd, it's a must read

    Even if you do not like self-help books. I happen to loathe them. Primarily because of their new- agey language and the inability to apply their message to my lifestyle. Learn from someone else's mistakes, the easiest way to learn. Loved this book.

    Got me reading

    I am a person who generally doesnt like to sit down and read a book, but this book drew me in with just its sample. As a self proclaimed nerd I could easily relate to this book in a matter of pages. I would not hesitate buying this book, it is bothfunny and inciteful.

    Chris Hardwick is a can't lose

    Let me first start by saying; I love Chris Hardwick. I will go see his stand up if he keeps coming around, I will tune into Attack of the Show on G4 when I know he is on, I dutifully subscribe and listen to his Nerdist Podcast like a religion... and I sort of remember that time he was on that show, on that Network that purpoted to be about music. Moving forward- his conversationalist style is appealing and immediately likeable. His personality shines through every chapter, which is all too charming. it would behoove any level 70+ Tauren shaman to read this book!
