Genre: Humor Writing, Society & Culture, Philosophy

Read-Alikes:
How to Be Normal by Phil Christman
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k by Mark Manson

Most people think of themselves as “good,” but it’s not always easy to determine what’s “good” or “bad”–especially in a world filled with complicated choices and pitfalls and booby traps and bad advice. Fortunately, many smart philosophers have been pondering this conundrum for millennia and they have guidance for us. With bright wit and deep insight, How to Be Perfect explains concepts like deontology, utilitarianism, existentialism, ubuntu, and more so we can sound cool at parties and become better people.
