really liked it
Recommended for: people who need some new words
Read in January, 2001

the cool terms in the margin are the best thing about this book. i have integrated quite a few of them into my person.

some favorites:

Now Denial: to tell oneself that the only time worth living in is the past and that the only time that may ever be interesting again is the future.

Metaphasia: an inability to perceive metaphor

Poorochondria: hypochondria derived from not having medical insurance.

Option Paralysis: the tendency, when given unlimited choices, to make none.

...among others. Coupland is one witty bastard.
