'Anguish and fear have never been so much fun' -- Andy Riley, author of THE BOOK OF BUNNY SUICIDES 'Somehow, Andre Jordan manages to make a stick figure look mournful ... More than indulgent artistry, Jordan's doodles, buffeted by misery, dejection and angst, are tentative explorations of social and deep psychological disquiet' -- The Big Issue 'Love, humour, religion, death and sex, all doodled by the deft hand of Andre. I challenge anyone not to smile, laugh, or have their heart melt, when they look at his drawings' -- Abby Lee, author of www.girlwithaonetrackmind.blogspot.com 'Andre Jordan's If You're Happy and You Know It is a pretty good substitute for therapy. It is a marvellous little book that will have you laughing out loud and nodding your head in recognition. With wit and insight, he captures life in all its quirky glory. His doodles illustrate more eloquently than words the craziness of the human condition' -- Lorna Martin, writer of Grazia's CONVERSATIONS WITH MY THERAPIST column Praise for Andre Jordan's blog www.abeautifulrevolution.com'This stylish journal from a prolific writer, doodler and photographer called Andre illuminates a mind recovering from depression, and brims with honesty, dry wit and a refreshing lack of schmaltz' -- Sunday Times 'It never ceases to amaze me how much emotion Andre can convey with a few economical strokes of his pen. His doodles - always heartfelt and refreshingly honest - veer from poignant to hilarious, and often manage both at once' -- Catherine Sanderson, author of www.petiteanglaise.com 'Your pictures speak a thousand words' -- Fan of the blog 'I have found your site both funny and moving' -- Fan of the blog 'I love your blog, it makes me smile' -- Fan of the blog
