"If you can't be happy naturally, force it," the Too Much Coffee Man recommends while knocking back another cup of coffee, desperately trying to lift his mood. Sounds almost like the slogan of a pharmaceutical company, doesn't it? Shannon Wheeler's humorous stab at our ridiculously individualized and commercialized ways of dealing with problems is generally insightful, occasionally hilarious, but becomes a little repetitive towards the end. Definitely worth checking out, just don't down the whol ...more

The book:
I love it because it's bits and pieces from other collections and spans everything from the just-silly-and makes-me-chuckle-enjoyable to the makes-me-consider-appreciate-recognize-fear-cringe-at-be-apart-of-run-away-from-laugh-at-the-world-myself.

It wouldn't be a huge stretch to say "this book changed my life".

TMCM:GftP is a collection of many of the original Too Much Coffee Man strips, and they are hilarious. There's a darkly whimsical intellectualism to TMCM that has always appealed to me. It's incredibly smart material, presented in a very silly, self-mocking form.

I think I still quote lines from this book on a daily basis.

"Would you rather work retail or have a nail driven through your hand?"
"How big of a nail?"

One of my all-time

From the earliest days of TMCM, read Wheeler's strips from Jab magazine and one-pagers. Great satire and humanism.
