Book Review: Heart and Brain

Amazon Cover

Heart and Brain (The Awkward Yeti Presents) by Nick Seluk


New York Times best seller, Heart and Brain: An Awkward Yeti Collection illustrates the relationship between the sensible Brain and its emotionally driven counterpart, the Heart.

Boasting more than two million pageviews per month, has become a webcomic staple since its creation in 2012.

In addition to tons of fan favorites, Heart and Brain contains more than 75 brand new comics that have never been seen online.

From paying taxes and getting up for work to dancing with kittens and starting a band, readers everywhere will relate to the ongoing struggle between Heart and Brain.



Many a time The Awkward Yeti comic has appeared in my Facebook and meme feeds from friends, acquaintances, and suggested posts. While not one of my daily amusements, I realized I had read it enough I should send some appreciation the author’s way so he could continue to write this highly entertaining webcomic.

So I bought a book with Awkward Yeti, featuring the characters “Heart and Brain” and enjoyed revisiting old FB memes and discovering new comics. The Brain waking the Awkward Yeti in the middle of the night with long-forgotten social disasters. The Heart running off in every direction trying to find its passion. The butterfly drifting through adding lively hope. And a couple times the stomach popping up with its own special demands, such as during a serious discussion about the most pressing questions of the time – world peace, does alien intelligence exists, and should we order nachos or pizza. (both please)

If you like Awkward Yeti, send some Heart the author’s way by buying one of his books. Or if you find truth in the Awkward Yeti’s humor, send some Brain the author’s way by posting a review from his book.
