Join Nerd superstar Chris Hardwick as he offers his fellow “creative-obsessives” the crucial information needed to come out on top in the current Nerd uprising. Success is the most satisfying - and legal - form of vengeance there is. And you can achieve it when you follow the Nerdist Way,

    What made the experience of listening to The Nerdist Way the most enjoyable?

    Hardwick covers several great areas of self help to encourage nerds to get off the couch and keep themselves motivated and healthy. Since he comes from the same place as his intended audience there's a true sense of honesty and authenticity to his message.

    Must read for any nerd languishing in couch-dom.

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.
