I received an advanced copy of How to be Perfectly Unhappy from NetGally in exchange for a fair and honest review.


I think How to be Perfectly Unhappy may be my favorite collection of Matthew Inman’s work to date. Not only does it still have the sometimes insane humor that we all know and love, but it blends it together with a surprisingly deep message, one that I personally resonated with.

I’ve read bits and pieces of How to be Perfectly Unhappy on the Oatmeal website, but it was actually really nice to be able to read through it all in one go. I think that anybody that’s ever struggled with the issue of “not being happy enough” should give this a read. It’s very well done and exceptionally insightful.

If you’re a fan of Matthew Inman and the Oatmeal, you may want to consider buying this book. It is deeply personal and touching, and I feel like I know him better now because of it. I certainly feel like I can relate to him more now. And as a bonus, supporting an artist you like is always amazing!



About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
