FROM THE AUTHOR: This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative - like maybe someone who isn't me wrote it - but I soon discovered that I'm not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:* Pictures* Words* Stories about things that happened to me* Stories about things that happened to other people because of me* Eight billion dollars** Stories about dogs* The secret to eternal happiness*
*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!



“Dear other iterations of my past self, Thank you for not being so goddamn weird that I felt I had to address you personally in a letter from the future. I commend you.” 

I am still dabbing at the tears in my eyes, and the stomach cramps from laughing so hard. Never, in my life, have I laughed out loud so much while reading a book!

I am a newbie to Allie Brosh's blog, but as soon as I spent just a couple minutes on it, I was hooked. When I received this in the mail as a gift from Simon and Schuster, I was jumping for joy and dove in right away. I couldn't wait any longer to start reading!

I devoured Hyperbole and a Half. I laughed and I cried(only because I was laughing so hard). My fiance started donning glassy eyes because I kept reciting segments of this book to him; And because I would keep him up at night from my loud cackling laughter muffled giggles.

Go out and get this book now! Read it from cover to cover, and then keep it close by you for always. Whenever you need a laugh, grab it and open it to a random page. This book is a treasure to have on my bookshelves!
