This is the tough love that boys need to hear today: a candid and whipsmart guide to being a good guy in a world full of assh*les.

In this frank, funny, and necessary guidebook, Kara Kinney Cartwright, a mom who has raised two teenage boys, compiles all the unwritten rules of being a good guy. As it turns out, everyone needs to learn one major lesson to safely avoid assh*le territory: other people are also humans. (Whoa, right?)

Just Don’t Be an Assh*le
contains everything young men need to know to have positive interactions, make the best decisions, and recognize when they’re being jerks. Things like,

Just don’t be an assh*le:

• To your family (parents are not your employees)
• To your friends (they’ll laugh at you, not with you)
• At work (no one wants to hear your podcast idea)
• To women (“Are you up?” doesn’t qualify as romance)
• Online (if you wouldn’t do it in real life, don’t do it)
• In the world (people unlike you are also people)
• To yourself (it’s okay not to have all the answers)
