About the Author

Matt Shirley started making charts in 2008 and eventually figured out he could get paid for it. Today, Matt is a full-time chart-maker and freelancer, creating visual content for a variety of clients across the world. Matt's charts have made the front page of Reddit numerous times and have been featured on The Today Show. Previously he was an editor for Playboy and Civilized.


"This is a book for chart and infographic lovers and anyone who needs a laugh. I smiled the whole way through!"--Michelle Rial, bestselling author of AM I OVERTHINKING THIS?
"This is a brilliant, hilarious portrait of the realities of being an adult. Matt Shirley makes the cleverest charts on Instagram, and this book is his most entertaining and insightful work yet. It's also a remarkably good investment, because it takes less than an hour to read, but it will keep you laughing--and thinking--for months. It might be my favorite thing to emerge from the dumpster fire of 2020 that doesn't rhyme with 'Maxine'."
--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of THINK AGAIN and ORIGINALS, and host of the TED podcast WorkLife
"Matt is one of the absolute best there is at putting relatable, humorous observations in chart form." --Jason Oberholtzer, author of I Love Charts: The Book
"Full of the best kind of truths: the ones nobody says out loud." --Jessica Hagy, bestselling author of HOW TO BE INTERESTING
