New York’s hottest new book, How to Be a DumbASS: How to Fix Your Behavior and Keep Yourself in the Loop, is now available in print, on Kindle, and on Apple iBooks, Kindle Fire, and Apple TV.
The book is a collaboration between the New York Times bestselling author of the bestseller The Smartest Guys in the Room, and the award-winning social psychologist Amy Cuddy.
New York City has a long history of being one of the most successful cities in the world, and New York is known for its rich and diverse culture, which makes it a perfect setting for a book like this.
To get a sense of the kind of cultural diversity that’s found in New York, I spoke to Cuddy, who also is the author of The New York Book Club, and to the author, who has a background in the city.
The interview has been edited for length and clarity.
New Yorker: The book starts off by talking about the history of what we now call the dumbass, which is when you’re not smart enough to get a job.
Can you talk about that?
Amy Cuddy: The dumbass was defined as a guy who was not intelligent enough to find work.
You can find some of these examples in my book.
In the 19th century, the idea that you can’t find work, you’re a dumbass.
The idea that I was dumb was in the 1950s.
That was the first time it was put in the dictionary.
I think that’s what makes the book so interesting.
There are other definitions, but I think what’s important is that the word dumbass is defined in a way that I think has a history of making sense.
It’s something that’s been around a long time.
It was first used in the Oxford English Dictionary as early as 1786.
It seems to have a little bit of a history, but it was a way of saying, “You know, I don’t know, but this isn’t going to work.”
And that’s when the term was first defined.
I believe it was around 1845, so I think it’s the earliest.
I know that’s a little off because I’m sure there are a lot of other words that have been in the English language that have that same meaning, but the dumbasses were really in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and it was kind of a new concept.
When we came up with the word, it’s been a while.
But it’s still there.
It still makes sense to me.
New Yorkers are not dumb, but they are not stupid.
People do dumb things.
We have a lot to learn from each other.
New Orleans was the last place I lived before I moved to New York.
I remember walking down the street and somebody was saying, Hey, I got your ass in the street, and I was like, Yeah, well, maybe I shouldn’t be on the sidewalk, but you know what?
They’re like, “Hey, this is what it looks like,” and they go, “This is what you look like.”
The way we talk to each other, we talk back to each.
We’re not dumb.
We just do dumb stuff.
But when we’re talking to each another, we can have fun with it.
People can be dumb in the same way that they can be funny.
And it’s not because we’re dumb.
People are smart.
The people who have the smarts can be stupid, but people are dumb in a very different way.
New Americana, The New Yorker, September 18, 2018, 1:39:58 Amy Cuddys book is one of my favorites.
I really like the way it starts off.
It doesn’t have a bunch of buzzwords.
It starts out by talking to people who don’t really know much about the topic, and then they talk to people.
But then they give you a lot more context and some ideas about what people can and can’t do.
It gives you a sense that it’s really not about how smart you are, but how you’re doing.
New Americans can be very smart and be dumb at the same time.
I would say New Americans have a kind of the dumb, dumb, smart thing.
People who are dumb are a subset of what’s called the New American subgroup.
People with a lot on their minds can be smart, but not smart at the exact same time, like people who are smart in other ways, like artists and writers.
There’s this huge range of people in New American culture, from the artists to the comedians, from musicians to athletes, and people with a different style or a different approach.
NewAmerican culture is an exciting and dynamic culture.
I feel like it’s growing.
I’ve been thinking about how I would like to be a New American for a long, long time, and what I want to do is try to help those
