Has Chris become and alpha male?  Reply with quote  

After defining the beta male in A Dirty Job, it seems that You Suck did not focus on the Beta male character as much as in all his earlier books. Does anyone else feel that in lieu of Chris' success he has become more of an alpha male?

I meant to pose this question to Chris at his last signing but I wasted my questions on the first part of this question which was asking what character he most identified with. To which his reply was Tommy. Then I wasted my second question asking if that was why he focused more on Abby. His response was one I already knew.


So... can a beta become an alpha? Can an alpha become a beta? Is one actually better than the other? Do these roles switch often throughout ones life?

I don't know how this relates to Chris but it seemed to me more like
the alphas were posturing figureheads & the betas did the actual work-
but the only thing I know for sure right now is that I have a sudden craving for alphabet soup...

Chris is akin to Bill Gates in this issue. Still has to use the beta imagination to write the books, but has alpha success, and an alpha income.
