First Time Here?

Welcome.

Maybe you read a book of mine and you found this website.

Perhaps you saw an article or a link or a friend said to check out my writing.

Or, possibly, you were searching on Google images for “douchebag” and ended up here.

Whatever the reason may be, welcome to my personal website. My goal is to be interesting, useful, and challenging to you, in that order.

Here are the things you’re going to want to do to get started:

STEP ONE

Get the emails directly to your inbox:

A lot of my writing, for reasons of decency, privacy, and political correctness, I don’t share publicly. I only email when I have something new and important to say and share, so sometimes that’s just once a week or once a month. Often, if it’s really important, I plan a phone call, and we get to all talk about it. It’s fun, and many people say it’s the only mailing list they get directly to their inbox.

Sign up here:

And make sure to whitelist the email address neil@n—s——.com (if you can’t figure out the letters those dashes represent, you may not be right for the Inner Circle).

STEP TWO

Read a book:

If you haven’t read anything I’ve written, The Truth, The Game, and The Dirt are good books to start with. Basically, any book that begins with a The.

If you are too busy (i.e., lazy) to read, The Game and Emergency are available as audiobooks, and you can enjoy the gift of my adenoidal voice droning in your ear for 16 hours straight.
