Summary

Get ready for the online adventures of one man who just wants to make friends.

And one very annoyed world.

Based on the ingenious Sir Michael Twitter account, How to (Almost) Make Friends on the Internet is the funniest audiobook you'll listen to this year. 

Whether it's offering his services as a karate lawyer or funeral DJ, devising the world's worst plan to get a free haircut, or trying to buy a blue bucket that may or may not be for sale, Michael just wants to connect with people.

The only problem is that people are slightly less enthusiastic about connecting with him, and the results are utterly hilarious.

Warning: you'll never think about adding someone called Michael to a group chat the same way ever again.

"Finally, someone has worked out a good use for social media and it's brilliantly, painfully funny." (Iain Morris, co-creator of The Inbetweeners)

"Michael is the funniest human on the internet, bar none. Read his book, you cowards." (James Felton, author of 52 Times Britain Was a Bellend)

The best book about (almost) making friends

If you already know Sir Michael’s online web postings this audiobook brings them to life. Great narrators who bring out the frustration, anger, and confusion of all who encounter Sir Michael in the wild. Plus statistics! If you don’t know who he is I recommend listening to this book and then seeking him on some of the online communities for more entertainment, information, and the occasional business idea.
