Great book! This guy's cartoons are always funny (like others on here I read Carolyn Hax's column all the time), but when you see them together like this, they really pack a punch. I hate to admit it, but I see myself, my husband, and my friends (and even my dog!) in every section. Insights on relationships are spot on. Makes me squirm and laugh at the same time. And then run to share it with whoever's nearby. There are a lot of cartoons that I haven't seen before, but I also keep flipping back to my favorites. They never get old. I love the drawings alone (my husband will kill me for saying it, but he looks just like guy on the cover!). I just bought one as a gift for my niece's bridal shower. Definitely on my holiday gift list too!

Wow! It's like this guy set up security cameras in my last few apartments. These observations are dead-on, and perfectly capture the weird and confusing and exciting world of interpersonal relationships. With writers, we usually say an author has a great ear for dialogue. But Galifianakis not only has a great ear, he also has a great eye. What's more, the illustrations are brilliant, and often funny as hell. This book could make a great gift. But buy it for yourself.

Format: Paperback
The title says it all "uncomfortably true." And that's just what Nick shows us. Like Jerry Seinfield, Nick brings up the things nobody every really wants to say, but are as plain as the nose on your face! You could make a Seinfield episode out of any of his scenes. But even more genius is the skill in taking a full "episode" and boiling it down to one line and an image. Nick has taken the themes of our lives, loves and connecitons to people and put them right in our face to laugh at ourselves. You'll see yourself, or friends, or family in every one of these and that's what makes it a true masterpiece. I highly recommend this book for anyone who breathes!!

If you ever needed proof of the cliché that a picture is worth more than thousand words, this book is it. I've been a longtime fan of Carolyn Hax's Tell Me About advice column, but have always thought that what makes her advice so memorable is the brilliant one-liner (or no liner) cartoons. This book contains many of my favorites including the one that graced my fridge for years and pretty much sums up my greatest failing in life--a circle of empty chairs entitled "Tardiness Support Group"

Nick G. gives the same sage, "duh" advice in his cartoons that it takes Carolyn Hax multiple paragraphs and numerous "foreheads to keyboard" to give.

Personally, I wish he'd written it years ago, possibly saving me years of relationship angst. I never quite worded it so succinctly but I can see clearly now the rain is gone...or wait, wait I meant to say, I can see clearly now after seeing myself in his cartoons how I "strung myself along" for 7-ish years with a non-committal guy who I (wrongly of course) convinced myself was my future husband (see the chapter entitled: "The Bastard Files." )

Disclaimer, Nick was a few years behind me in high school and was friends w/ my little brother. He debuted the book with an art show in our hometown of Falls Church last week. But it's not just me. My girlfriends who joined me at the book signing also had their own ah-ha moments. One, now single after a 30 year mixed marriage said she had to stop herself from getting a framed print (of Nick's cartoon of plaid vs. striped zebras) to send her ex. " Arrgh! See?! After all we've been through, I STILL want to send him presents!"

My friend Bunny laughed at the one of the one of the bunny sitting at the bar, saying, "I finally figured it out. I'm prey!

Format: Paperback
I am not normally one for cartoon books, but really I like the Tell Me About it column and the cartoons that go with it, and this book was under 10 bucks so why not. First of all, its worth the price of admission alone for the forward written by the author's cousin, Zack Galifiniakis. Hilarious. And I hate to endorse ripping a book up, but there are about 10 pages that I need to rip right out and send to people. Anyone in your life with whom you have shared the ponderousness of relationships has to have this book. So funny and painfully true at the same time - you laugh out loud and then go "Wait. Ouch." The sign of truly good comedy.

Nick Galifianakis's cartoons always hit the mark - anyone who has ever had a relationship or loved a dog (and that should just about cover everyone) will find him/herself in some of these cartoons and friends and loved ones in the others. I really love this book...so much that I am buying copies for my close friends and everyone in my family. This book has made my holiday shopping a little easier and a lot funnier!

Format: Paperback
This is the funniest book I've read in a long while! Nick Galifianakis is able to put all of his humor and insight into each beautiful cartoon -- not an easy task. This would be a PERFECT PRESENT for anyone you know that has a sense of humor -- or possibly needs one. Just make sure you also get a copy for yourself, or you will not want to give it away.

I bought two copies, and even got one signed and personally inscribed through Nick's website: [...].

I see that there are a few 1 star reviews. Clearly those people have not read the book. Or the cartoons were so "Uncomfortably True," those without a sense of humor did not know what to do with themselves. What a shame. Don't let them turn you away, YOU clearly have excellent taste.
