Nerds: Once a tormented subrace of humans... Now captains of industry! You don't have to be a stereotypical geekwad to appreciate the tenets of Nerdism and to make your innate talents for overanalysis and hyper-self-awareness work for you instead of against 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.

Nerds subsist on the minutiae of their chosen passions. As a lifelong member of The Nerd Herd, as he calls it, 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 managing the avalanche of sadness that is your inbox, from ignoring your brain to attracting wealth by turning down work, Hardwick reveals the secrets that can help you accomplish what you want by tapping into your true nerdtastic self. The Nerdist Way shows how to focus your mind, body, and time into an unstoppable laser of goodness. Don't wait for another social tragedy. Don't resort to cheap mass murder tactics to exact your revenge on society. Success is the most satisfying - and legal - form of vengeance there is. And you can achieve it when you follow the Nerdist Way.

    " I'm usually not into self help, but the nerd approach really appealed to me so I had to read it, and I wasn't disappointed. Chris Hardwick should try writing other kinds of books too, he's really funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcelus Cooperino | 2/5/2014

    " 2012. This book gives some good counsel to people of my ilk. It might also help the non nerd. The general theme is to use your obsessions to your benefit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 2/4/2014

    " When I bought the book I did not know it was going to be a self help book but it turned out okay. I love the Hardwick way of talking and his voice in the writing is what really made this book worth reading for me. The points he made were very valid and great, I just don't need them right now but will surely use it as reference. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 D'Monti | 1/30/2014

    " I'm not one for self help books, but this was amazing. Hardwick didn't even bother telling people what to do, he just shared his life story. This should be classified as an autobiography in that sense. This is just a feel good book and it has some neat tips in it for making life easier and moving yourself towards success, in a very abstract way. This book has no rules, there is swearing, there is vulgarity, but it all comes together in the end. A must read for all Nerds out there. Enjoy your burrito. "

    " Totally wasn't what I expected it to be. Took me a long time to get into, but once I did time flew by. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/21/2014

    " The important things are to Decide and Start. Parallels to some points from Tim Ferriss. A bit funny at points with a couple actual LOL moments. The author at least doesn't take himself too seriously. A lot of advice seems structured towards the freelancer. Also got some notes of the small iterative process in many of the improvement methods, which I liked. Advice was pretty standard but delivered in a clever way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/20/2014

    " I loved this book! A lot of great suggestions that I am going to start implementing in my real life. I also love the idea of the 'Character Tome' as a way to track your life and help you stay on track with your goals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brittany | 1/13/2014

    " Everyone should read this book, especially if you're at all nerd-like. His writing is great and funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sylvie Dale | 1/11/2014

    " Lackluster and goofy - cute concept but he lost me on the exercises chapter. He's over the top geeky and not in a sexy way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan Wolford | 12/16/2013

    " The book was okay. I was more looking for sort of an auto biographical book about how Hardwick sort of revived his career by indulging his nerdom. Instead there are chapters dedicated to his work out routine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 12/11/2013

    " Really a fun book on taking a you-as-game-character approach to leveling up in real life. Solid advice in the entertaining voice you'd expect from Chris Hardwick. I'm just sorry it didn't come with a theme song by Hard & Phirm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben | 11/26/2013

    " A good look back at chris hardwick and how he moved forward "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tole | 10/23/2013

    " the author of this book comes across as an utter jerk in the marketing, but he seems not so bad in the actual content. we shall see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becca | 7/12/2013

    " I will be rereading this soon with a notebook in hand. I'm not usually into self-improvement books, but to this nerd this book was filled with excellent ideas and motivation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 4/29/2013

    " A general self-help book targeted at nerds by a comedian/tv host. Despite the penis jokes and obscenities, this actually had some decent info alongside a good dose of humor. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz DeCoster | 12/25/2012

    " The first third of the book was the strongest; I thought the last two thirds lacked originality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry Regan | 12/8/2012

    " I was a little surprised by how I related to Hardwick's point of view. Definitely made me pause to think "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Thornley | 5/5/2012

    " Did'nt want to like it - didn't need his help - but this is actually a really good book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 KarenB | 12/19/2011

    " Life goals and self-improvement in a way I get! Excellent audiobook as well. "
