Book Description

Did you wash your hands?

Set the alarm clock?

Lock the front door?

Better yet: Do you like even numbers? Do you fold all of your trash neatly into squares? Do you count steps? Do you carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you at all times? Everyone has his or her own neuroses. On a routine trip to the office bathroom, Lianna Kong discovered one of hers: "How could I possibly pee with my coworker sitting right next to me doing her business?" And, in that quiet moment of panic, iamneurotic.com was born.

i am neurotic (and so are you) is a smorgasbord of anonymous confessions that reveal people's deepest, strangest, and funniest compulsions—quirks that are triggered in the boardroom, the bedroom, and everywhere in between.

By Robert I. Hedges HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on January 29, 2010
Format: Paperback
Lianna Kong has compiled a great little book of idiosyncrasies which have been posted anonymously on her web site. They are funny, and there is no editorial judgement or mockery of any of these odd behaviors, although many people may be relieved that they aren't as strange as they think. The book consists of about two hundred neuroses illustrated with brilliant color photographs taken by Matthew Stacey.

The behaviors themselves range from quirky to startlingly bizarre. There are too many great entries to mention all my favorites, so I've chosen two that fascinated and amused me to provide the gist of the book:

"I have to transfer the brain of my old toothbrush to the new one. I do this by holding the heads of the toothbrushes an inch apart and making a buzzing/zapping noise. Then I wobble the new toothbrush to show that it received the old one's brain."

And my personal favorite:

"When I eat colored sweets (Skittles, Smarties, etc.) I have to arrange them by color, then pull out enough of them to create a Fibonacci triangle before I eat them (in ascending numerical order). Any excess sweets that do not fit the pattern have to be eaten in one go before I can start on the patterned sweets."

This is a funny book that is not critical of odd behaviors, but celebrates them as humorous quirks. I recommend it for anyone self-conscious of peculiar harmless behaviors, or anyone who wants a good laugh.

This is a great book to flip through for a quick laugh, whether you're sitting on the couch, lounging around on your bed, or sitting on the toilet waiting for someone else to leave so you can finally go. The fantastic photos accompanying each neurosis serve as humorous backdrops, illustrating the futility/hilarity of your everyday life.

Cute little book on the wide range of neuroses that various people have. The book is a series of photographs with one sentence from each person, describing why they are neurotic, so it's not a good book if you're looking for an in-depth discussion. I recognized myself and several of my friends in here, so it was a relief knowing I or they weren't the only ones who did/thought something. Loved reading about some of the really odd neuroses as well!

Cute little book of photos detailing people's quirks and neuroses. I am not without quirks (which we won't go into at this time) but nothing leapt out as being "Omigod, that's me!" Turns out it's based on a blog [...]

My family is full of people diagnosed with mental issues, and this speaks to the crazy person inside of me. I love flipping to random pages, and my husband and I have had a good laugh over the few of our neuroses that are in the book.

... I loaned it to my mentally ill mother and she thought it was "cute". The humor was lost on her, but she was glad that she's not the only one that does some of those things.

Quite a unique way of looking at the quirkiness of human behavior. After going through most of the book I can honestly say that it made me feel better about some of my neurosis and 'OCD-like' behaviors. Definitely recommend picking up a copy for yourself or a friend.

I had seen I Am Neurotic on a display shelf a few weeks back and thought it looked like something I would enjoy. Then later found out it was first a blog (I love the blog to book stories) and finally sought it out at the store recently. It was definitely what I had expected. I identified several of my own "quirks" in the pages of this book and other ones I had never considered!

It was a little funny and a little comforting to read this book. Finding out a lot of people have little things that they have to do, or notice to make their day go by smoothly. It's not usually something that comes up in conversation for me so it was nice to get a dose of some story swapping.

The format of the book is very small and it is perfect bound so it's a little hard to really open up and see all the photography without cracking the spine. A larger format or different binding would have made the book a lot easier to read. I loved the photos that were taken to go with the contributions. They were these sort of muted shots that aren't overly finished and I think they compliment the contributions nicely. My favorites are where you can see a person's face instead of a close up of a hand or something like that.

Overall this is the kind of book you will know in an instant if it is for you or not and i had a great time with it!
