When the government refused to recognize “reality” as a handicap, humor columnist Rick Rantamaki set out to “properly document” his claim – in one of America’s major newspapers. Discover, as Atlanta has, the hilariously debilitating effect reality can have on the ingrained perceptions of an American son raised on a steady diet of public schools and Saturday morning cartoons. At last, an uncut, unaltered collection of Rick's columns (including those deemed to 'edgy' for public consumption) reveals why sanity never had a chance. (Helmet not included)

"Odd Humor from Cover to Cover..." If you are the type to see humor in the drudgery of daily life you will LOVE “Mental Notes: From the Brink of Reality”. It is clear Rick Rantamaki has been able to successfully incorporate humor into his life as evidenced by his light-hearted view and the ability to routinely find humor in the mundane (e.g., 4-Way Stops), sometimes frustrating situations (e.g., The Daily Commute) he has found himself in. If you have the ability to laugh at yourself and your life, then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book!!! Rick Rantamaki reminds us that it is not experience that causes our stress, but the way we feel about it.
