"No one has replaced the brilliance of The Far Side ... but Friedlander's skewed jokes evoke that landmark comic's better than any strip does today.... It's something of a surprise to find this new work so whimsical, sly and modest ... He creates little cracked worlds with a simple image and a few words."―The New York Times Book Review
"Judah has drawn a weird and funny book in the grand '70s tradition of B. Kliban! I think this book will probably fix the world."―Tina Fey
"Some people meditate. Some people masturbate. But if you don't have the time or patience for either of those, I recommend reading If the Raindrops United to calm down, have a little laugh, or a big think."―Susan Sarandon, Actor
"I've known Judah for many years and I still don't understand how his mind works, but it sure works. Seriously strange. Seriously funny. A National Treasure. Sadly, I need to get a restraining order against him."―Paul Giamatti, Actor
"Another hit from The World Champ tackling the signs and symbols you frequently question while dropping hot lava in your American Standard VorMax."―Eddie Huang, Restauranteur, Chef, Food Personality and Writer
"Judah thank you for writing a funny twisted book. It is such an easy read. Even dum dums like me can enjoy it!!! Buy this book."―Dave Attell, Comedian
"Judah's drawings are deceptively simple, yet they become more compelling with every page. His talent as an actor/writer/comedian is further conveyed in ANOTHER medium. He's a Quadruple Threat. He wears many hats. Literally."―Janeane Garofalo, Actor and Comedian
"Reading Judah Friedlander's new book is a lot like hanging out with Judah himself: occasionally baffling, frequently thought-provoking, but, most of all, consistently hilarious!"―Mick Foley, Semi-Retired Wrestler, Author, Comedian and Actor
"To compare Judah Friedlander to a great cartoonist like Jim Davis would be a compliment to Jim Davis."―Wyatt Cenac, Comedian, Actor, and Writer
"An exercise in brilliant efficiency. One of the funniest and most insightful books ever drawn."―J.J. Abrams, Director, Producer, and Writer

When you need a break from life just pick up this book and flip through a few pages. On the day that I received it I found that I was already half way through when I told myself that I needed to take a break and save some for another day. It's not a book that I see myself reading more than once but is a good conversation piece for visitors. (some PG-13 content). Maybe I'll take advantage of the insert your own drawings pages in the back of the book.
