Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A unique, hilarious take on the modern world

Jessica Hagy is a different kind of thinker. She has an astonishing talent for visualizing relationships, capturing in pictures what is difficult for most of us to express in words.

At indexed.blogspot.com, she posts charts, graphs, and Venn diagrams drawn on index cards that reveal in a simple and intuitive way the large and small truths of modern life.

Praised throughout the blogosphere as "brilliant," "incredibly creative," and "comic genius," Jessica turns her incisive, deadpan sense of humor on everything from office politics to relationships to religion.

With new material along with some of Jessica's greatest hits, this utterly unique book will thrill readers who demand humor that makes them both laugh and think.

Thought-provoking and entertaining; definitely fun to re-read.

Jessica has certainly tapped into something unique here - her insights are smart, thought-provoking, and most importantly: really funny.

Each page has one and each page makes clear that a picture is worth a thousand words.

Jessica Hagy's book, "Indexed," offers some unique, interesting...and often entertaining...insights into the world at large through the mediums of simple charts. The relationships Hagy points out in this book are insightful and often surprising.

While this book provides interesting and thought-provoking reading, it is light on content. The pages are not numbered and it took me approximately ten minutes to read the entire book.

Despite the book's brevity, it is worth a read. The question that potential purchasers should ask..and answer...is if the book is worth the price. The author offers content through a website ([...] but I am not sure of the overlap of the web site's content and the content of the book.

In the final analysis, Hagy offers interesting perspectives on many facets of life through a basic medium...her content is worth consuming. This book may not be the best (or most economical) way to peruse her content, though.

This is a great little idea -- key word little. It does not stretch to fill a whole book. Moderately entertaining, a few thought-provoking ideas. In my opinion, not worth this many pages.

I've been following Jessica Hagy through her blog for over a year now and I was incredibly excited when her book came out. This is a collection of some of her published notecards as well as a few which were never published. This is definitely a collection of some of her best, that will make you laugh and make you think.

If there was anything that I wish, it would be that there are more note cards. The book is for too short with most cards that I'd already seen. I'd definitely recommend it for someone who hasn't read her postcards before, or is simply interested in have a few random ones around.

I help companies sell more. Specifically, I help companies sell technical products. In this effort I speak to groups all over the country. I find that good visuals make a good presentation. I purchased "Indexed" to open my mind to better visuals.

This book can be used one of two ways. First, it is a funny and quick "read" (and I use this term loosely because there are very few words - it is visual). Secondly, this book can be reviewed often to stimulate visual representations for your own ideas....

It's not for everybody, but it works for me.

Great book to stimulate your creative brain. Gives you an opportunities to "read" in a new way, because this is not like a real book. It's pictures and words combined in such a way that the viewer - not the reader - is inspired to find the message. Each page has one and each page makes clear that a picture is worth a thousand words. Now, how can I communicate better using my unique tools and perspectives.

I appreciate the author for boldly bringing this artform to my attention. Originally, I was seeking a book on how to draw, but Hagy makes it clear that you don't have to be a great drawer -- not that she isn't -- to communicate ideas with simple drawings.

Ideal for those who tie their organizational sense to index cards, and/or who have a cynical appreciation for how to lie with statistics, and/or who do a lot of charting, graphing or sentence diagramming and have a sense of humor about it.

The book is candy, not science; and once gone through its role as amusing diversion is over and it's ready to be passed on to someone else.

We saw this book at a friend's house. If you like math, it is very creative--uses graphs, charts and other math visuals to create funny "cartoons". We gave a copy to my daughter's high school math teacher who loved it as much as we did.
