I have had this kicking around for some time and finally read it. An interesting book. The inside has the Element Chart but re-written; very funny.

Great characters.

One of Coupland's earlier works, peopled with character you can love, despite their imperfections, and satire galore.

Shampoo Planet was written in 1992 after Generation X. Coupland at his best, a must for any fan.
