"Kreider locates the right simile and the pith of situations as he carefully catalogues humanitys inventive and manifold ways of failing" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

In We Learn Nothing, satirical cartoonist Tim Kreider turns his funny, brutally honest eye to the dark truths of the human condition, asking big questions about human-sized problems: What if you survive a brush with death and it doesnt change you? Why do we fall in love with people we dont even like? How do you react when someone youve known for years unexpectedly changes genders?

With a perfect combination of humor and pathos, these essays, peppered with Kreiders signature cartoons, leave us with newfound wisdom and a unique prism through which to examine our own chaotic journeys through life. These are the conversations you have only with best friends or total strangers, late at night over drinks, near closing time.

This edition also includes the sensationally popular essay "The Busy Trap," as seen in the New York Times.
