Review for How to be Perfectly Unhappy

Review for How to be Perfectly Unhappy

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

The title seemed familiar, but I was hoping there would be some new material in this one. Sadly, the answer is no. If you follow The Oatmeal/Matthew Inman on Twitter, and check his site quite a few times a month, then you have already read the entirety of this one there.

I still read it, and I noticed a few little changes (like the picture of the guy on fire in the running part).

It was good, and the message still came over clearly, just like it did when I read it the first time. It is a strong message, and I think it is one that needs to be read by everyone.

But I do think it is a bit silly to make a book just for this one comic. It would be nicer if he made a big compilation book with this one, several others, and also some new material not yet shown on his site/twitter. I would love that. I would buy that in a heartbeat. This may sound rash, but well, I have to post my honest review and I can’t help but mentioning this.

All in all, still a good book, but I had expected more of this book.
