Overview

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!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"If nerds have proven anything," Chris Hardwick once asserted, "it is that they have an innate ability to throw incredible amounts of focus at things." He should know: The author of The Nerdist Way is also the host of the popular Nerdist podcast and Web Soup, a confirmed Doctor Who and Star Trek voyeur, and a nerd circle icon. In this radically unconventional self-help primer, he coaches fellow "creative obsessives" on channeling their energies for happiness, health, and, who knows, even financial success and popularity. A witty way of learning to point the nerd laser.

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

    Disappointingly generic

    I love Chris Hardwick, but it feels like this was ghost written by someone else with an edict to use as much Tony Robbins-style TV motivational speaker buzzwords and dime store pop psychology as possible. Then, "nerd culture" and 1980s references were sprinkled liberally through the text to appeal to his comic con audience.

    Like so much cotton candy - sweet, empty calories - or a Poison power ballad, this is all style and very little substance.

    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!
