A Tongue-in-Cheek Guide to Becoming a Dictator, Based on the Outrageous, Scandalous, and Excessive Behavior of Dictators Past and Present 

Who hasn’t dreamed of one day ruling your own country? Along with great power comes unlimited influence, control, admiration, and often wealth. How to Be a Dictator will teach you the tricks of the trade—how to rise to the top and stay in power, and how to enjoy the fruits of your excellence.

Other topics include: how to become wealthy and spend your fortune, sleeping around, expressing your literary genius, and how to avoid being toppled, exiled, and or meeting any other dismal end. Combining black humor with political insights, How to Be a Dictator is peppered with horrifying and hilarious stories from some of the most eccentric modern world leaders.

Editorial Reviews

“Serious subject handled in a most humorous way . . . The details about the reign of small and large lunatics in a number of countries is in the background. But with his special take on the subject, and his relaxed, dry humour, it gets most readable. The book could just as well be read as a lesson in fun facts before a quiz night, as it can be a reminder of corruption, murder, and misgovernment.”

– Faedrelandsvennen

“An extraordinarily funny study of political thinking, serious beneath the surface, filled with dark humor and remarkable facts.”

– Dagbladet

“One might almost believe that President al-Sisi of Egypt had studied Mikal Hem's thoroughly researched handbook, How to Be a Dictator. Al-Sisi fulfills almost all of the criteria that the Norwegian journalist points out for the successful way to create a dictatorship.”

– Die Presse (Austria)
