Fresh off his fundraiser to preserve Nicola Tesla's Lab as a museum, Matt Inman of The Oatmeal has released his new book. The title itself "How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You" is the title of one of the comics he runs on his site. As you may have guessed, this book is all about cats and their precarious antics, something The Oatmeal has a particular fondness for.

|How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You
Jesus Rollerblading Christ--another helping of TheOatmeal! Mrow, MOAR kitty comics. Mr. Oats delivers a sidesplitting serving of cat comics in his new book, How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You.
If your cat is kneading you, that's not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. If your cat brings you a dead animal, this isn't a gift. It's a warning. How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a hilarious, brilliant offering of cat comics, facts, and instructional guides from the creative wonderland at TheOatmeal.com.
How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a grade A funny book, as expected from the Oatmeal. Unlike his other book, there is not a lot of reused comics that you can find on his website.
If I had to place a number to it, I would say that only 20% of the 136 page book is content I have seen on his sites. Some of the comics you'll find on the site that you'll find in here are "How to Pet a Kitty", "The Bobcats", and "Cat v. Internet"
Much like his other books, How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is bright an colorful, packed full of Matt Inmans' interesting artistic style. You'll want to rip the pages right out of the book and hang them on the wall. I recommend not doing that, as you can probably buy them as posters from The Oatmeal site. However, maybe you'll be lucky and the page you want to rip out is on the pull-out poster that comes with the paperback version of the book!
If you are considering buying this digitally, I hope you reconsider. Apparently there have been problems with the digital delivery on this book. Thus causing the only bad reviews this book has received. Too bad, if it weren't for that, this book would have a perfect five star review on amazon.
Within twenty four hours, How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You rose to the best seller on Amazon. That really is no small feat. This book is perfect for brightening a sad or frustrating day. How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You is a perfect coffee table book as well. That is, it's great to put out to entertain your guest in your house or the people that wait in the waiting room at your business.
