    I’ve been reading Dharma Comics online for years — it is always an unexpected delight when a new one comes out and brightens my day a bit — so I was excited when I found out that a collection of them was coming out in print.

Reading them all together, even though I’d seen them (almost!) all before, was a different experience. Tied together by the author’s narrative of how she came to start drawing and why she continues to do so imparts a personal connection that makes the stick figures looking up at me from the page all the more touching. It is the perfect book to have laying out in view for people pick it up, open to a random page, and inevitable chuckle with pleasure at whichever scene they’ve discovered. Alas, I have to get a new copy because I’ve already given mine away to a friend who was feeling tender. I should probably buy several, I think I’ll be giving more away.

    Author, Leah Pearlman, is my great (in more ways than one) niece. While working at Facebook in its early days, Leah was the motivator and creator of the "like" button. Then, while her father suffered with lung cancer, Leah put so many reflective thoughts about life into simple drawings in this book. From "Loving Me", "Loving You", "When Life Gets Hard" and many other journeys our lives take, Leah captures charming and whimsical wisdom in simple, but profound, drawings and captions in her book Dr Author, Leah Pearlman, is my great (in more ways than one) niece.

    Being a multipotentialite, I love anything that is multidisciplinary. This is definitely one book that transcends many levels. The accompanying artwork may be simple but digs deep if you allow it to. This one is for those of us who need to retreat into our inner worlds frequently to cope with the demands of the outside world. "Beneath all the feeling Before all the thought Between the illusions Of who I am not, There is a quiet space A place I can go Where there's nothing to do And nothing to know I go Being a multipotentialite, I love anything that is multidisciplinary.

    My Recommendation: This is an incredibly fast read. I read it in one sitting at lunch, but I can definitely see going back to it for many reasons. There were illustrations I wanted to share with many people and may see if I can find them on Pearlman’s website for that purpose. I would definitely say flip through this if you ever see it because it is a great reminder that you’re not alone. My Response: I don’t want to generalize these books, but I know that’s what my response is going to sound lik My Recommendation: This is an incredibly fast read.

My Response: I don’t want to generalize these books, but I know that’s what my response is going to sound like. Perhaps I’ve read too many similar to this recently, but I’m going to start with a list of all the things this book reminded me of, but then also talk about why I felt it was different. Prior to the publisher reaching out to me about this book* I actually hadn’t encountered Dharma Comics before, but this line drawing style isn’t anything new. It reminded me of a cross between xkcd and hyperbole and a half but with more of an intention and focus on getting through life and not just observations. And then add in that it reminded me also of books I’ve read recently such as Whose Mind is it Anyway? and How To Be Happy (Or At Least Less Sad) , I’m a little surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.

    This small book is exactly what the subtitle says it is: a collection of sweet, uplifting comics. They convey inspirational or heartfelt ideas with a minimalist style that comes across as both earnest and authentic. Many teens will find this book corny and some will undoubtedly be too cool to be seen with this. But for teens who wear their heart on their sleeve, and those that wish they could, there is a lot to like in this little collection.

Many teens will find this book corny and some will undoubtedly be too cool to be seen with this. But for teens who wear their heart on their sleeve, and those that wish they could, there is a lot to like in this little collection. The comics are grouped loosely by theme with five parts dedicated to self-reflection, relationships, dealing with hard times, moving through life and mindfulness. The first four sections are themes that will almost certainly resonate with teens and the fifth is a tool that may appeal to those in overwhelming circumstances. Admittedly, there are few revolutionary or even new ideas in here. There are many platitudes that students will have heard before. But there is truth in each of them and the simple drawings and visual word play make them accessible to teens of all ages and even adults. This is a book that would sit equally well on a guidance counselor’s shelf or at the bottom of a backpack – handy to keep around for days when students could use a little boost.

    An incredibly sweet and lovely collection of thoughts on happiness, love, relationships, and life. Not very deep, but a lot shared through the simple drawings and thoughts.
