Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Being a villain is a lot more difficult than non-villains think it is. Bad guys do more than lurk in shadows and stab strangers. Embracing the evil life is a full time occupation, requiring diabolical diligence. In this reliable cutthroat guide, the author of How to Be a Villain helps would-be monsters carve out their identities, offering answers to burning questions about choosing house décor, professional specialties, and entertaining themes. Fiendishly funny.
