Chris Illuminati is an asshole. No, seriously. If admitting you’re an asshole is truly the first step, then he is an apt teacher (His name is technically listed third, so maybe he’s just the ta.) in assholeology. The book which he co-wrote boils down being an asshole to a science; the science of getting your way – and getting away with it. Somehow, Green, LaValle, and Illuminati managed to boil down this science to something the common man can use without coming off like a douchebag.
