Dude, the World’s Gonna Punch You in the Face

Here’s how to make it hurt less

by Kris Wilder and Lawrence Kane


Time Investment: ~300 pages, but the point is not to read it all in one go.

Reader Ratings:

Reader: Tabitha Farrar

General Readability Rating: 4/5

This book isn’t designed to be read cover to cover, so it’s not easy to give a general readability rating as such. The whole point is that you read it a page at a time, and a page at random. I have to admit this concept threw me a little at first. I’m used to reading cover-to-cover and found it difficult not to default to doing so. However, if one does as instructed and puts the book somewhere it can be picked up and flicked through, this method of a quick snippet of wisdom works a treat.

Skill Development Rating: 4/5

This book is for your teenage son, so don’t expect it to act as a skill development resource for yourself, but read it anyway as you might find that you re-learn something that you should already know. The lessons are all about respecting other people, making good life choices, and learning how to weigh up the consequence of any given situation before acting. While designed for teenagers, these are concepts that most of us could use a refresher course in every now and then.

Reader notes:

Timeless concepts, don’t be put off because it says that it is for boys, girls will get a lot out of this book too.

Would you recommend this book to a colleague?

Nope, but I would give it to their son!
