Format: Hardcover
I read this book aloud to my boyfriend in the kitchen while we were making dinner and I had just put on some eyeliner (no, these two things are not related). I had no idea what I was in for. Not two paragraphs in, I had trouble reading for all the chuckling, and then I heard him choke on his drink. I kept reading because laughing is something we really enjoy at my house, but as time went on my reading was filled with fits and starts because I couldn't stop laughing.

Before I knew it I was doubled over with makeup running down my face. I couldn't stop my eyes tearing up but still wanted to read more. My boyfriend was laughing and I'm glad he put down the knife he was chopping vegetables with or he would have lost a finger for sure.

I finally had to stop because my eyes and stomach couldn't take it anymore. The thing that kills me is not only what Bucher is saying but how cleverly he says it.

While I was catching my breath my boyfriend commented, "Somebody's been through it!"

"I know," I repled. "He should get a medal or something."

ZOWIE!! This clever little tome is unassuming at first, and full of painfully delicious wisdom. And the drawings are great, too! Well done. A MUST PURCHASE.

Stefan Bucher is a creative genius!This gorgeous little book is crammed full of wit,wisdom, and dazzling artistry. It's pithy, poignant, and PERFECTLY HILARIOUS!If you're looking for a preachy book that invites you wallow in past romantic disappointments, this is NOT the book for you!

When Stefan Bucher named the book, "You Deserve a Medal", he meant it literally! He actually created and illustrated 40 different medals in recognition of the many pitfalls one can encounter on the path to true love.The illustrations of the medals and the ribbons they're suspended from will blow your mind! They look like they're ready to be lifted off the page!Each medal is accompanied by a short, concise, and uproarious explanation which describes,in detail, what the design elements of the medal represent and what the medal should be awarded for. You'll find yourself looking back and forth between each medal and its explanation,laughing out loud and marveling at the artistic and verbal nuances on every page.The quotes cited at the end of each description are dead on too!

"You Deserve A Medal" is a gem!!!I wish I could have given it TEN stars!It's a must-have and must GIVE! You can read it over and over and NEVER get tired of it! I recommend that you read this book from cover to cover when you get it in order to experience the brilliance of Stefan Bucher's unique concept and execution, but since there are separate short vignettes devoted to each medal, you can open the book anywhere and not worry that you've missed some vital information.

Be sure to check out the Medal Index at the end of the book. ENJOY!

Recognizing the precise manner in which we all delight, defraud, defend, denounce, desert and desire those we love -or think we love - and knowing others go through the same entire procedure may bring us right back to believing we're normal, functioning folks -while falling down laughing from the behavior and the right-on-target descriptions and illustrations of true love!!!!
