Plus there's a lot of other random stuff thrown in here. Here humor is rather absurd and silly, like the "Less Appealing Seasonal Drinks," like "Yellow Snow Iced Tea" and "Turkey and Gravy Macchiato." Her "Ye Olde Video Games" include sure hits like "Dance Dance Industrial Revolution" and "Harpsichord Hero." I particularly enjoyed her more realistic women's magazines: "Vague: For the Fashion Backward and Just Plain Lazy," including a feature article on "What to Wear from the Pile of Clothes on Your Floor." "Out of Touch," which has pictures of people with the caption, "We have no idea who any of these people are!" "Mediocre Housekeeping: How to Get Away With Doing the Bare Minimum."
Her content is definitely female oriented. I think she'd acknowledge that me deal with anxieties and issues, to, but she's writing primarily "girl to girl." (Not to say a sensitive male like myself won't get the humor. . . .) Correll is funny and real and goofy and fun. The Worrier's Guide to Life will make you forget your worries . . . for a bit.
Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
The inside was full of different chapters such as "Health & Hypochondria" (which hits the low hanging fruit of people who Google their symptoms and end up believing they're dying), "Fashion Frenzies", and other topics which cause the worrier to panic on an every day basis. The best chapter, by far, to me, was "Love and Other Anxieties".
Overall, this book of cartoons is one that speaks more to females, most likely, but even more to people who dislike socializing and find that most situations cause them anxiety.
I will say that some of the cartoons I did not find funny or relevant or they were oddly sorted, which took the review from a five star to four star, but I still got a laugh out of this. I think this would be a great gift for an anxious person with a sense of humor!
