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.



  • The title of this audiobook is completely misleading. The author/narrator excessively uses profanity, making it quite painful to listen. He speaks more like a street thug rather than a self-proclaimed nerd. If only the information shared in between the constant swearing was actually useful. Unfortunately, his "self-help" advice is simplistic and obvious. For example, he suggests not giving in to negative thoughts from your brain, calling it a mind-game. No scientific evidence is provided to support any of his self-help recommendations. I can only recommend this audiobook to individuals with lower intelligence, who happen to enjoy listening to foul language. The only nerdy aspect of this audiobook is the occasional references to RPGs, video games, and Dungeons and Dragons.
  • This book is essentially a self-help guide written by one of my favorite comedians. So, don't expect much of a storyline. But hey, that's alright. When it comes to discussing health, nutrition, and overall wellness, Chris' advice falls a bit short of accuracy. This is quite disappointing because, being a self-proclaimed nerd who would extensively research such crucial topics, I expected much deeper insights. It makes me question the credibility of the claims he makes throughout the book. How much of his advice is actually valid, and how much of it is flawed? The lack of trust in the author as an expert severely diminishes the value of this material. Chris might have been better off writing a comedy or satirical book instead.
  • I was a bit worried about this book because my husband read it first. He was hoping for more comedy and not a self-help book. So, that was on my mind when I started reading it. However, I actually ended up really enjoying the book. I found that I could relate to it in more ways than I anticipated. It offers plenty of practical advice that I can apply to my daily life. The book is narrated by Chris Hardwick, and I honestly can't imagine anyone else doing it justice. Although there were times when he spoke really quickly and I was afraid of missing something, his comedic delivery shines through and adds an extra layer of entertainment. This makes the audiobook version even better than what I believe the print version would be.
