    I love the Awkward Yeti However, I always only followed the comics online I did not read any of the previous books But I can certainly say that this is one of the best from online comics to a book I ve ever read I did not expect to get whole stories over several pages long instead of the usual short comic strips And it was so well done And I believe this is completely new content, I never saw any of these stories only before this.Every chapter tells a story of a different person which is illustrated in The Awkward Yeti fashion favourite moment was when one image describe what was supposed to be there and then said above the artistic abilities of the creator I just loved that It all started so well The first story was a great start, and I knew this will go very well It still is one of my favourite moments together with the kidney stones in the amateur geologist story and where s Waldo However, there were certain stories that were absolutely terrifying to me Like the lawn mover and I cannot imagine how anyone could think that could be a good idea Anyway, I m actually a bit impressed I never saw a land mower which would be easy to pick up And then Chapter 15, the bane of my existence, I would be happy if I never had to think about it, my insides twisted when reading that chapter On a different note, I was a bit sadden by the mother who freaked out because her child was teething, how did she expect the child to acquire teeth Was she saving to buy dentures for the child Yeah, this was so worth it Loved it However, there is one way to make this perfect Dr Mike Varshavski needs to make a video reacting to thins Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This is one of those kind of books I loved reading as a kid People tell their weird, true life stories of various injuries and ailments which Nick Seluk then illustrates There s stories like the person who came up with a very odd way of stopping his diarrhea or the dummy who tried to trim his hedges with a lawnmower If you like true tales of oddities and the strange, you ll like this book Received a review copy from Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    This is just my kind of book to relax and let my laughter boom Also, this is related to the medicos who see people of all kinds having weird diagnoses which the rest of the people would think that such things were made up and illustrated or written just for the sake of publishing a book The heck These things described in the book are happening now and then in real And that s why this book works content wise The illustrations complement the diagnoses covered and yes, the book title is just one of the stories mentioned in the book So there might be a little disappointment when you pick up this book The rest of the stories tell about other conditions like anosmia, thyroid surgery and scars one case of swallowing needle which was not intentional of course , cancer, surgeries, kidney stones, heart problems as well as many other topics are covered like mental health issues like depression and anxiety I like the way how even some natural body events being taken as something to be diagnosed The misunderstandings and the dilemmas alongside funny complementary illustrations make the book work, especially the Grey s Anatomy ones and Dr House, made me ugly laugh However, I feel that some stories are too short and rather incomplete In some chapters, illustrations look overdone Other than that I feel like not every story was funny, entertaining or relevant to the collection But I enjoyed this book Thanks NetGalley for the copy of HowIBrokeUpWithMyColon

    I needed one graphic read this year to satisfy my appreciation for the artistic love of comic reality These were real medical stories from patients.Gastrointestinal disorders illnesses and oddities Medical conditions, mysteries, painful physical challenges, chronic issues, are no joke.however these stories were filled with humor and warmth and knowledge This was my first introduction with the author, Nick Seluk, and the Awkward Yeti.I m really impressed Some very brilliant artistic, meaningful, emotionally felt helpful medical storytellinggoing on Definitely a new fan

    I love The Awkward Yeti, so whenever I see that there s a new collection up on Netgalley, I jump to download it as soon as possible I think this has to be one of my favorite works of Seluk s yet, even though it totally branches out from the usual style Instead of a collection of short, humorous, silly comics, this is actually a collection of true medical stories that were submitted mostly by patients, but sometimes by providers and then dramatized through comics They re still adorable and hilarious the gallbladder has my heart forever with its little you don t wike da stones moments , but it s also super informative and morbidly fascinating Whether you re new to The Awkward Yeti comics or a long time fan, I strongly recommend picking this one up Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    I love the Awkward Yeti, so thought this would be of the usual humor that you see there.It is not.Instead, it is just as funny, and weird, and tells stories of medical conditions that turned out weirdly Done in the same style as that of the Awkward Yeti, we hear stories of kidney stones, and moldy pancakes, and losing ones sense of smell.Fun, but weird book Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    I liked Heart and Mind series by The Awkward Yeti, but this was somewhat less enjoyable I think it is because of format It is stories told by different people, most of them facing unusual medical emergencies This book would be enjoyable if you have a medical background like my dad and not squirmish to see some gory stuff.

    This was like a buzzfeed article in comic form and I LOVED IT Some of these were funny and others, downright fascinating I could have read fifty editions quite happily

    I am a huge, huge fan of Nick Seluk and his incredible work as The Awkward Yeti I have all of his other books and a whole bunch the organ related merchandise.I was so excited to see his upcoming book, How I Broke Up With My Colon, available on Net Galley This one is a little bit different from most of his organ related work While previous books were focused on the anthropomorphic Heart and Brain and the endless battle between the two, and later he grew to focus and on a wider array of other organs, giving them all personalities and coming up with endless creative tales about the organs themselves, How I Broke Up with My Colon is a set of short comic stories about various health issues and oddities that have happened to his readers and fans Nick uses these stories, often including the storyteller s own words, to illustrate a wide variety of experiences one might have with their body So there are lots of humans in this book and it s a bit of a departure from previous books Never fear though There s adorable, hilarious, relatable organs aplenty, and appearances by the yeti as well Just worth knowing going in, the focus is a little different and shifted from much of what we re used to from Seluk.In this one the organs are like sidekicks, showing up with jokes and funny little asides There s a lot of diversity here from the title story that s told as if the main character and his colon were dating and break up, to mysterious objects in places they don t belong, medical scares, and even a story about mental health Several stories are from doctors or the children or friends of doctors as well, one involving a lawn mower was especially funny to me And have you ever wondered why the tooth fairy is so interested in collecting teeth In this book you ll get your answer I m giving this one 4.5 stars and rounding up to the 5 because while I somewhat prefer having the organs at center stage, Seluk is, as always, an incredible storyteller Even though he s working with the stories of others here you get his trademark creative tellings and have to marvel once again at how he uses actual medical knowledge, a punny sense of humor, and his immense artistic talent, to help us all to understand and marvel at our bodies and how a disparate set of so many organs and parts, while occasionally uncooperative or dysfunctional, somehow manage to work remarkably well together much of the time Highly recommended not just this book, but all of Nick Seluk s work to bodies full of organs everywhere Whether your organs work in such perfect harmony you ve never given them a second thought, or if like me, they re so dysfunctional you ve taken to personifying them yourself at times, there is truly something for everyone here Humor, fantastic art and creativity, a dash of medical knowledge, a dash of cuteness, and stories that will have you nodding along and feeling seen from the inside out, or laughing out loud Seluk is one of my all time favorite comic artists and I will be buying this one to add to my collection in March
