Don t Be a Jerk Excerpt :

It's easy to be a jerk, because you don't have to think about much in order to be one. You don't have to think about other people and their feelings. You don't have to think about your parents, siblings or friends. You don't have to think about your teammates or coaches or teachers. You only have to think about yourself and what you want in that moment. You don't have to think about the past or the future or the consequences of your actions. To a jerk, there are no consequences. In this short book, author and father (of three boys and a girl) Craig Heimbuch shares some of the lessons he's learned about the things jerks do and men avoid. As boys grow up, the pressure to be a jerk mounts, but so too do the consequences. Don't Be a Jerk is 52 short, insightful lessons he hopes his boys will learn before they grow up and learning gets hard. Real-world insights - Love Your Mom - are combined with small behaviors - Make Your Bed - and advice rooted in sports - Control Your Hustle to create easy-to-digest, easy-to-learn lessons every boy needs to learn.

If God Is Love Don t Be a Jerk Excerpt :

Thou Shalt Not Be Horrible. Imagine for a moment what the world might look like if we as people of faith, morality, and conscience actually aspired to this mantra. What if we were fully burdened to create a world that was more loving and equitable than when we arrived? What if we invited one another to share in wide-open, fearless, spiritual communities truly marked by compassion and interdependence? What if we daily challenged ourselves to live a faith that simply made us better humans? John Pavlovitz explores how we can embody this kinder kind of spirituality where we humbly examine our belief system to understand how it might compel us to act in less-than-loving ways toward others. This simple phrase, "Thou Shalt Not Be Horrible," could help us practice what we preach by creating a world where: spiritual community provides a sense of belonging where all people are received as we are; the most important question we ask of a religious belief is not Is it true? but rather, is it helpful? it is morally impossible to pledge complete allegiance to both Jesus and America simultaneously; the way we treat others is the most tangible and meaningful expression of our belief system. In If God Is Love, Don't Be a Jerk, John Pavlovitz examines the bedrock ideas of our religion: the existence of hell, the utility of prayer, the way we treat LGBTQ people, the value of anger, and other doctrines to help all of us take a good, honest look at how the beliefs we hold can shape our relationships with God and our fellow humans—and to make sure that love has the last, loudest word.

Don t Be a Jerk Excerpt :

The Shōbōgenzō (The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye) is a revered eight-hundred-year-old Zen Buddhism classic written by the Japanese monk Eihei Dōgen. Despite the timeless wisdom of his teachings, many consider the book difficult to understand and daunting to read. In Don’t Be a Jerk, Zen priest and bestselling author Brad Warner, through accessible paraphrasing and incisive commentary, applies Dōgen’s teachings to modern times. While entertaining and sometimes irreverent, Warner is also an astute scholar who sees in Dōgen very modern psychological concepts, as well as insights on such topics as feminism and reincarnation. Warner even shows that Dōgen offered a “Middle Way” in the currently raging debate between science and religion. For curious readers worried that Dōgen’s teachings are too philosophically opaque, Don’t Be a Jerk is hilarious, understandable, and wise.

Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk Excerpt :

According to Eugene Cho, Christians should never profess blind loyalty to a party. Any party. But they should engage with politics, because politics inform policies which impact people. In Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: A Christian’s Guide to Engaging Politics, Cho encourages readers to remember that hope arrived—not in a politician, system, or great nation—but in the person of Jesus Christ. With determination and heart, Cho urges readers to stop vilifying those they disagree with—especially the vulnerable—and asks Christians to follow Jesus and reflect His teachings. In this book that integrates the pastoral, prophetic, practical, and personal, readers will be inspired to stay engaged, have integrity, listen to the hurting, and vote their convictions. “When we stay in the Scriptures, pray for wisdom, and advocate for the vulnerable, our love for politics, ideology, philosophy, or even theology, stop superseding our love for God and neighbor.”

Just Don t Be an Assh le Excerpt :

Despite their parents' best efforts, there are times when boys on the cusp of adulthood seem like they were raised by wolves. Or the internet. This anti-asshole manifesto aims to provide young men with a framework for how to treat others--and themselves--with respect and dignity. As it turns out, all guys need to learn one major lesson to safely avoid asshole territory- Other people are also humans. (Whoa, right?) In this guide, Kara Kinney Cartwright, a mom who has raised two teenage boys, compiles all the unwritten rules of being a good guy--things she wanted to make sure she said to her own sons before they left home. Just Don't Be an Assh*lecontains everything young men need to know to have positive interactions, make the best decisions, and recognize when they're being jerks, with clear instruction on how to do better. Some of the wisdom Cartwright covers includes- Don't be an asshole to your family (grandma is not legally required to send you a check on your birthday); don't be one to your friends (they'll laugh at you, not with you); at work (unless you hate money); at school (newsflash- teachers are people too); or in the world (seriously, there are plenty of assholes out here already). And finally, don't be an asshole to women--a chapter full of real talk for anyone entering relationships in the #MeToo era. Just Don't Be an Assh*le is a frank, funny, and necessary guidebook for the next generation of teens--who will either save the world or destroy us all.

Don t Be A Dick Excerpt :

The single book therapists everywhere will recommend to all of their patients, because at some point or another, we are all behaving like dicks. Why this book? Because you might be a dick: a mean-spirited, self-serving individual who thinks and acts as though everyone else in the world can only be understood—and whose only importance is defined—in terms of their relationship to himself or herself. That’s right, herself. Because anatomical evidence aside, dicks can be women, too. Being a dick might feel powerful in the short-term, but it is probably not helping you much in the long-term, because this flawed character trait is exactly what is keeping you from attaining what you may want most: personal satisfaction, a steady job, a loving committed relationship, and/or lifelong friendships. Anyone, at any time, can slip into being a dick—and many do. Yet Don’t Be a Dick is especially for people who have noticed how their own behavior tends to backfire, leaving them feeling isolated or uncertain why their seemingly justified actions consistently have such poor results. If you’re constantly using the refrain, "It’s not me, it’s them," whenever something goes wrong, Mark Borg is here to tell you that it is, in fact, you. The good news is there is something you can do to reverse these behaviors and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
