Reviews

"A hilarious collection" * Mashable * "Will certainly help you, should you perhaps decide to indulge in a spot of "self-gifting" in this instance, survive Christmas with your more crazed relatives" -- Rachel Cooke * Observer * "Fantastic, hilarious, emotional" * Mayaland * "You may have to push this book away for fear you'll hurt yourself laughing, but its wisdom and humanity - no hyperbole here - are too magnetic to keep at bay for long" -- Mary Pols * People Magazine * "Honest, poignant and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and I'm better for having read it. Plus, doggies!" * Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess *

I love Hyperbole, I started reading the blog a while back and thought this book would be great as a gift! It definatly doesn't disappoint.This book is much bigger then I thought it would be, and is full of great comic style stories. I would 100% reccomend this to people; if you are unsure then just check out the blog first, see what you think. :)
