Since 1997, fans of some of the most popular sitcoms ever broadcast — The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly and Dharma & Greg — have been granted a fleeting glimpse each week into the unfettered and uncompromising mind of the incredibly prolific creative force behind those series, Chuck Lorre. That's because Lorre devotes exactly one second of airtime per show to expressing his deepest thoughts at the end of the credits on his now-infamous vanity cards, which for many years could only be enjoyed by freeze-framing on a VCR and squinting to read the tiny, wobbling words.

Now, for the first time ever, hundreds of Lorre's witty and insightful musings have been gathered together in a limited-edition, slipcase book from Chuck Lorre himself that reveals a hilarious, thought-provoking and scandalous body of work unlike any other creative endeavor. Veering from philosophical treatises to personal revelations to the occasional furious diatribe, Lorre never shies away from controversy — even in the face of network censorship, as has often happened.

But never fear: Every word on the original vanity cards included in this curated selection is here — even the censored texts that never made it to air. Enhanced with sly, ingenious illustrations and designs that capture the off-kilter essence of Lorre's bite-sized dispatches, What Doesn't Kill Us Makes Us Bitter will change the way you think about life, the universe and TV — or at least it'll save your eyesight.
