From the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE ARRIVAL Never be late for a parade. Never forget the password. Never ruin a perfect plan. It's all about the rules. But what if the rules feel completely arbitrary? What if your older brother is the only one who gets to make them up all summer long? And what if he's the only one who can save you when the darkness of winter comes rushing in? As usual, master artist and storyteller Shaun Tan shows us the strange truth of ordinary things -- rules, relationships, despair, and hope -- as only he can.

This thought-provoking compilation delivers a message of awareness and transformation through the daily insights of an inspired non-conformist. As a partner to the 365 Rules website, it asks you to think critically about the world we live in. Rule No. 130: Holding establishments accountable for drinking and driving—just another example of the self indulgent, irresponsible masses trying to deflect blame and suck upon the teat of society’s two-headed litigious whore mother … “greed and avarice!” Rule No. 355: Car alarms—how many times has your car alarm been set off accidentally? And how many times has your car been stolen? Exactly! Rule No. 320: I hate cops—I hate the cops … translation … “I hate getting busted every time I break the law.” If you hate police, chances are you’re breaking the law too often. Prepare yourself, because the gems of wisdom contained within its pages will awaken your desire to challenge the system. In the new world, 365 Rules will be handed down through generations as a continual work in progress to help keep our world on a righteous path. “365 Rules of the New World is a hilarious glimpse into the mind of a man craving serious societal change. Seemingly off-the-wall and curmudgeonly, Bennett manages to perfectly balance humor and poignancy to deliver a powerful punch to the gut of the whacky world we live in.” — Nicole Schill, author of 30yearoldknowitall.wordpress.com
