For me, this collection works on two levels. As art, each of Nick's cartoons is a mini-masterpiece, with so much expression, emotion, and detail created with such clean and simple lines. With no more than a twist of lip or cant of eye, each cartoon manages to say so much with an economy of style that is incredible.
On the second level, the insights about human behavior that appear in one or two lines below most of the cartoons are deep, insightful, illuminating, and incredibly touching. If you've ever loved and lost, or just lived in hope of being loved, or, hell, ever lived, there are useful messages here for you -- call-outs on our common bad behaviors, encouragements for being better, and a general sense that the only differences between human beings are superficial. Eye color is variable. Behavior is not.
There's a reason that the Pulitzer Prizes have a cartoon category, and this is a collection and a cartoonist fully worthy of that merit. Buy the book, then share it with your loved ones -- or your dog. You'll see yourselves in here, and realize that, for all of your flaws, you're just as human and valid as everyone else. And, as I said at the beginning, "the best art serves as a mirror of our own humanity."
Here is a great mirror. You'll find yourself gazing into it again and again.
This book is cute and as brief as the cover drawings clothing. One or two cartoons are so spot-on they serve as lessons unto themselves.
I gave this as a gift and kept a copy, and wasn't sorry I'd purchased the two.
It's cute. If you like Nick Galifianakis' cartoons' humor in the Washington Post's Carolyn Hax's column, you'll like this.
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!Read more ›

It is rare to laugh, and relate, to each cartoonists' drawing, but this author made me do it. A great Sunday afternoon delight!Published on June 15, 2014 by River Dawn
I like this book as far as it goes. Galifiankis deals with men/women relationship issues that don't really affect me but, hey, he still is right on.Published on April 25, 2014 by armenious
