I Can't Believe It's Not Better is a collection of stories, essays, advice, and drawings from writer and comedian Monica Heisey. Created to help you live your Best Life, this book offers tips on everything from workplace politics to sexting, from how to make your apartment look like you read design blogs to where to cry in public. Important guides like "How To Watch Literally Hours of TV At A Time" will help you sort your life out for good, while thought-provoking personal essays such as "Pizzas I Have Loved" and helpful exercises like "Are You Being Flirted With, A Quiz" provide some gravitas and perspective to help you navigate this modern world. Plus there is a very weird short story about bees.
"I Can't Believe It's Not Better is relatable and sharable (lend it to your friends). It's the type of book you'll want to read when you have a fully stocked fridge. There are tips for eating in bed, texting back in the right amount of time, keeping it real with those sexy selfies and where to cry in public. This is the first book of its kind, a book that covers all the ground millennials need covered. Monica's essays span a huge range of topics but do so in a very down to earth and friendly way. Read this book in the tub with some essential oils, while you're riding the subway or in a castle made of macaroni glued together. You'll laugh, maybe cry and will definitely will feel like Monica is the type of lady you can text up for a breakfast burrito jam session.
