In the tradition of Christian Lander’s hipster/yuppie-friendly bestselling Stuff White People Like, Michael Ian Black delivers his unique brand of quirky, deadpan humor in this new collection of comedic essays.

Now that Black has become the guy he swore he’d never be—a Yuppie A-Hole—he has a lot to say about his family life in suburbia, and he shares his incisive yet absurd observations with readers in You’re Not Doing It Right. Chronicling his adventures cruising the neighborhood for his inevitable future “divorce house” (despite being happily married) or discussing Our Second Shitty Baby, Black delivers his straight-faced musings with the same sardonic humor that has earned him a rabid cult following. Want to know the pros and cons of hamster ownership or why kindergarten recitals are so boring? Looking for tips for lying to your kids about Santa? Clever, dry, and laugh-out-loud funny, You’re Not Doing It Right will “blow your mind all over your face” just like My Custom Van.

Quotes & Awards

  • “All these years, Michael Ian Black has not gotten enough credit for what a good writer he is. This book is charming and good company and—best of all—amazingly honest. And really, really funny, of course—though you probably already guessed at that part.”

    Ira Glass, host of NPR’s This American Life

  • “Memorable and funny…[An] amusing look at masculine insecurity and confusion.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • This book is so frank, so full of amusingly embarrassing confessions, I should probably be giving Michael Black a hug instead of a blurb.”

    Sarah Vowell, New York Times bestselling author and essayist

  • “It’s no surprise that Michael Ian Black’s book is hysterical. But I was surprised by how heartfelt and touching his memoir is. It’s true: Michael Ian Black has emotions!”

    A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically and The Know-It-All

  • “I loved My Custom Van. But I loved You’re Not Doing It Right even more. Reading this book felt like taking a long road trip with Michael himself—which I’ve done. And I actually recommend the book more. Touching, hilarious, and truthful all at once. What else do you want, America?”

    Mike Birbiglia, New York Times bestselling author of Sleepwalk with Me

  • “Dear Michael Ian Black: please stop writing things in books that I wish I had written myself, it's starting to make me feel bad. Also, would you like to be friends someday? I sure would.”

    Samantha Bee, senior correspondent on The Daily Show and author of I Know I Am But What Are You?

  • “Michael Ian Black is one of the finest comedy minds of our generation and a master at assembling words in a hilariously pleasing way. You would have to be a vapid crapsack not to enjoy this book.”

    Chris Hardwick
