"How did Brian Frazer take his neuroses and write a hysterical book, while mine just annoy my family? Seriously, this is one funny book. Damn it."
-- Ray Romano
"Hyper-chondriac is my new favorite memoir! It was so funny I laughed out loud, so honest I gasped out loud and so relatable I immediately called my therapist. I love this book!"
-- Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, author of Sippy Cups are Not for Chardonnay
"Brian Frazer has written a very touching and hilarious exploration of family, hypochondria, and road rage. It's awesome."
-- Greg Behrendt, coauthor of He's Just Not That Into You
"...a riotous romp through a head case's attempts to find inner peace for his own bodily health."
-- New York Post
"Hyper-chondriac is an amazing book. It's funny, raw, moving and original. And I'm not just saying that because I'm afraid Brian Frazer will be angry at me if I don't."
-- A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-it All
"...caustically funny yet quietly moving." -- USA TODAY

Top Customer Reviews
I highly recommend this book and if you don't love it, you can personally ask for your money back from Brian Frazer. He's so calm now I'm sure he'd give it to you. Okay, maybe not. But buy the book.
This is a brutally, painfully, and wonderfully honest depiction of a journey to gain inner peace and all of the things that make us nuts to begin with. By the end, I was deeply moved and sad it was over. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a smart, engaging, manic ride. Expect to laugh.

Merchant great, fast shipping and arrived quickly. The book itself has a couple funny insights, but more of a hack comedian's take on serious health problemsPublished on June 28, 2014 by Steppenwolf
Good read, funny and informative, but not hilarious for depressed hypochondriacs. The author make a shortcut for the roads that you may try to travel.Published on December 29, 2013 by IFH
Brian Frazer is a good writer, I really enjoyed Hyper-Condriac. I could totally relate to anxiety and how it affects your life. He is funny in a neurotic kinda way.Published on November 14, 2013 by Tracie Priest
This is Brian's life, what goes on. He lives in my cul-de sac, here among the characters and wildlife that make the hills above Hollywood alive and Darwinian. And yet he thrives. Read morePublished on October 28, 2013 by Arthur Sellers
