Don't Be a Dick Pete
Iron man. Alpha male. Danny Dyer fanatic. Shagger. Meet Pete. He's Stuart Heritage's younger brother. And he's a dick.
Stuart Heritage got where he is today by being decent, thoughtful, hardworking and kind. He is, in short, a model citizen. The favourite son.
His younger brother Pete is quick-tempered, peevish and aggressively pig-headed and, for a while, known to his friends as 'Shagger'.
But now, Stu has returned to his hometown to discover that Pete has taken his place.
Don’t Be A Dick, Pete is a hilarious examination of home and family; sons, fathers, fatherhood, sibling relationships and how hard it is to move on in a system that’s loaded with several decades of preconceived ideas about you.

Almost unfairly funnyHadley Freeman
I loved it so much I read it in one fell swoop. Fantatically funny but also so touchingIndia Knight
Every person I know is going to love this book. I can’t imagine anyone reading this book and not being in love with it. He is incomparable in terms of his voice and observational lens… No one writes about the incidentals and the characteristics of British life better than himDolly Alderton
This is (very, very) funny, but it's also a story about brothers and families and home, and it's as warm as it is rudeStylist

Really funny, and ultimately very touchingMarian Keyes
I think it's BRILLIANTXan Brooks
I love it. I have laughed and cried on numerous occasions. So much of it reminds me of my own suburban upbringing that its terrifying... brilliantly written.Tracy Ramsden
The book is a fun, witty, boisterous look at what it means to be a brother, to share that history and to make memories. And it’s a nice break from the ‘traditional’ biographic fare, although I suspect its greatest appeal will be, naturally, for brothers.Jade Craddock, Nudge
Packed with hilarious stories but… also a touching take on modern masculinity and familyGrazia
A memoir focusing on fraternal ties, it is an unconventionally uproarious take on what it is like to have a brother whom you love, but, oddly, have absolutely nothing in common withA-List
