    So, my boss bought this book for herself and then set it on my desk. Was she trying to tell me something? Yes, but in a friendly way. If you've seen The Good Place, there's a moment where Chidi says his brain is constantly making the noise of a fork caught in a garbage disposal.

If you've seen The Good Place, there's a moment where Chidi says his brain is constantly making the noise of a fork caught in a garbage disposal. Same, Chidi, except my garbage disposal is on a gay cruise ship and the noise is being yelled into a mic by a strange aerobics instructor on ecstacy (Google "Yes Dance"). Anyway, yes, I overthink most things and that makes my life more complicated than it has to be. This book is cute and clever, using items and imagery relevant to each proposed question we all tend to overthink. My favorite part was the last chapter on big issues. This book is both a good palate cleanser and gut check - a nice reminder to not take yourself so seriously all the time.

    What a fun book! 101 charts that really make you think...am I overthinking? Love the use of common items to present graphic representation!

    I have had this book in my hands exactly 29 hours. I've managed to show it to several people and each one says, "This is me!", and then after seeing a few more pages, "she is brilliant". I kid you not, this is verbatim what each person says over and over again. So it's fun to read, fun to show people, and I've already ordered a few as gifts. Just another bit of entertainment; right? Well, there might be more to it. I thought about it and realized this is a lot more than just a fun book. These 10 I have had this book in my hands exactly 29 hours.

These 101 pages capture what life is like in 2019; at least in most western countries with people of a certain age range. Most of it is timeless, but when to look it in entirety, it will be looked at decades from now at a snapshot of our time and how we all view the world, and . . . well, maybe overthink things sometimes ;-)

    Absolutely brilliant. You will find yourself giggling at how accurately each page paints a relatable picture of the human condition and it’s many quirks!

    Michelle is a genius! This book takes our most pressing questions — from the mundane to the existential — and distills them into simple, creative charts that make sense of the world and our own neuroses. It takes a special skill to make complex topics so digestible. I am in awe of Michelle's creativity and feel less alone after finishing her book. Highly recommend! Michelle is a genius!

    Clever and thoughtful and beautiful to boot. If you're looking for a good laugh, you'll definitely get it, but if you're also looking for a graphic commentary on today's world and life in general, you'll get that too.

    What a delightful filler book. Some really wonderful charts that you can relate to and then, well, overthink about.

    The BEST coffee table book (especially if you're a therapist and need something for your clients to read in the waiting room... post-pandemic of course). Rial does a phenomenal job at creating witty titles and creative artwork to portray and normalize life's questions, big or small. 10/10 recommend for a fun, quick read.

    This is a funny book of charts and graphs, most made with everyday objects. My favourite was the ven diagram that answered the question: What can I serve at a party?

    If you need a quick book of charts to brighten your day a bit and remind you that everything can be put into perspective, I strongly recommend this.

    2019 Read Harder Challenge: A humor book. So clever. I especially like that she incorporates objects that have to do with the subject -- it's not just drawings. And the backstory of this is poignant: chronic pain shifted Michelle Rial's abilities from senior designer doing dense infographics, to pen and paper -- adding objects if her hands were too achy.

    I enjoyed this one, loved the way it was designed and laid out. Some made me laugh and some made me wince because yep, that’s me. Always good to know you’re not alone. There was something I appreciated in most of the sections, though particular highlights include what does my tote bag say about me, am I eating too much cheese, should we get ice cream, how do I make small talk, can you tell I’m stressed, should I lend you my books, will it be ok...yeah, there’s a lot of good here.

    So clever and cheeky! If you follow her insta, (@michellerial) quite a few of the charts will look familiar, but the collection is still great! Art+Data+Self Deprecating Humor = Very fun little coffee table book

    This was a fun birthday present. A lot of these charts are relatable to people who like to, uh, "think ahead" about all the different possibilities before making a choice. I especially like the ones that make graphs out of common household items. This was a fun birthday present.

    It's a cute book whose title suits me. I read it in small sections rather than straight through because I've learned racing through this sort of book makes it less enjoyable. The last chapter was the best. It helped to know the author has done charts for Buzzfeed and other businesses. Otherwise, I would have wondered why she managed to get a whole book of artsy charts published. It's a cute book whose title suits me.

    A fun book of charts with many clever, creative visuals. Made me chuckle quite a few times. Could have delved deeper into more interesting questions but enjoyable nevertheless.

    Some very funny and very true graphs.
