I found this collection a few days ago on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/1449470890/?tag=mh0b-20&hvadid=7041476032&hvqmt=b&hvbmt=bb&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_800noti26s_b after I had been following the comic online for the past few years.  This collection takes a humorous web comic and makes it a thousand times better.  By seeing the strip in a single volume you begin to experience the comic for its true meaning and humor.

It is quite simply a philosophical battle between the heart and mind of a Yeti lost in the world and having to choose between the logic of reasoning and the passion of following his heart.  The interplay between the two is a familiar struggle that we all face on a daily basis as we travel along in life.

I read the comic once in a while on Twitter and Facebook and it was always funny, but I quickly glanced over it and moved on, this collection allows you to stop and appreciate the strip in a single volume.

It really is an amazing comic.  I highly recommend this volume as it will make you fall in love with the awkward Yeti as he tries to settle the age old debate between heart and mind.  One can’t exist without the other, but unlike the Yin and Yang they are not necessarily in opposition.  They are two parts of the same thing and they both lend meaning to the other.  It is a brilliant premise and a hilarious comic.
