Gabe Foreman’s reference book – A Complete Encyclopedia of Different Types of People – attempts to define who and what people are through a collection of poetry that is unique, funny and engaging.
While not every person may understand the collection as a whole, there is something for everyone. Some insightful poems include: Bridesmaids, House-Sitters and Transplant Survivors. More off-kilter, quirky poems include: Entomologists, Organ Donors and Snoops.
The collection is definitely worth a read, and it’s something that you’ll pull off the bookshelf and return to again and again.
He just seems like a really cool guy...
