This is a humorous look at a serious topic of how people do unkind things and then try to cover them up through humor, proclamations of innocence, and blaming others. Through stories, the author shows that no one can be a sh*t without your consent, but they can succeed as b*stards, pr*cks, schmucks, and weasels all on their own. Read this book and you will be ready to dethrone the next person who dumps on you. For those who aspire to be sh*ts, this book is a step-by-step guide. For those who want to be accountable, this book shows how. It is custom-made for readers who prefer not to read slang in texts. Each of the slang terms have asterisks in key places. This book also shows how to develop and test theory using qualitative methods and makes a great research text.
