...Without Actually Improving Yourself. As a self-help book, Faking It adds a delightful twist: you don't have to journal or meditate or talk about your feelings or change at all to help yourself. You just have to perfect a few tricks. It's memory over introspection. Learning behavioral templates over learning to communicate. It's faking it.
Faking It is another brainchild from the writers of Collegehumor.com and The College Humor Guide to College. It's for all the graduates out there looking to BS their way through life with the same eloquence and effectiveness they used to BS their way to a B in a class they attended only 4 or 5 times during the semester. And, in case it wasn't clear yet, Faking It is as much a satire as it is a tome of useful advice.
Or, as much a tome of useful advice as it is a satire, depending on how you look at it.
You'll learn How to Seem Like a Better Person Without Actually Improving Yourself with training on: sounding like an MBA; bribing the maitre'd; acting sensitive post-sex; hiding your ignorance by being dismissive; and baiting people into asking you to tell a story that makes you sound like a hero / mack / way cooler and more interesting cat than they are.
