How to Be Interesting (in 10 Simple Steps)
Amazing chart-artist (chartist?) Jessica Hagy, who has previously done guest comics for The System, has come out with a new book with Workman Publishing called How To Be Interesting (In 10 Simple Steps). If you’ve ever read her blog This Is Indexed, this book is everything you love about her comic (“written as the coffee brews”) but with the time and thought given to give her thoughts time to mature into bigger ideas. There’s even a tumblr with some highlights (http://how2beinteresting.tumblr.com/) that you can follow to see some of the highlights.
No, I haven’t read the book yet, but I don’t have to in order to know it’s going to be good. Jessica is a very smart cookie, and you should buy her book because you’re gonna like it.
