Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A unique, hilarious take on the modern world.

Jessica Hagy is a different kind of thinker. She has an astonishing talent for visualizing relationships, capturing in pictures what is difficult for most of us to express in words.

At indexed.blogspot.com, she posts charts, graphs, and Venn diagrams drawn on index cards that reveal in a simple and intuitive way the large and small truths of modern life.

Praised throughout the blogosphere as "brilliant," "incredibly creative," and "a comic genius," Jessica turns her incisive, deadpan sense of humor on everything from office politics to relationships to religion.

With new material along with some of Jessica's greatest hits, this utterly unique book will thrill readers who demand humor that makes them both laugh and think.

After reading this (and subsequently her blog) you will walk away asking yourself, can one person really be THAT smart? THAT creative? THAT cynical? THAT uninhibited?

For the person that loves to have a good mind challenge with a belly laugh at the end, this one is for you.
