I grew up in the sixties with in an interesting family. My father was a typical sixties Republican and my mother a typical sixties Democrat. I think I was reading political cartoons before I was even reading the comics in the paper, and that developed into a life long love affair with political/editorial cartoons.

I found this collection to be good, but there were a few that could have been left out. Also, the author did tend to put a lot of his cartoons into the book. It is, however, a collection that will make you laugh, cry and most importantly, think.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to think with a broad mind and who can see humor, however dark, in most situations.
This is the fourth edition of Cagle books I have purchased. This one in my humble opinion is the best yet, and that is due to amount of cartoons included herein. This one has more cartoons per page than the 2005-2007 editions and contains a few more pages as well. Hundreds of top political cartoonists are featured, and subjects like the Iraq War are right here next to Paris Hilton and O.J. Simpson.

If you have an interest in the issues of the day and enjoy great cartoons. This book should be a part of your library..This is an excellent purchase.
Five Stars !!!

The best book to stay up-to-date with the world's madness. Since we can't avoid it, better to learn about it: and laugh at it!

One year flows too quickly: this collection of cartoons stills the time and make events understandable by giving us a chance to slow our breath for a while. Also, the short explanation about each news event displayed in the book is very useful to recollect what it was all about.

This is an invaluable tool for all those who leave outside the U.S. but love America, deal with America and/or simply want to stay attuned: what happened in D.C. last year is most likely to come on show in Bern the year next. So, it's a magic ball.
A good way to judge a country's political pulse & issues is to read the editorial and commentary cartoons and this volume is no different, recommend.(p.s. although it is from 2008 some of the issues and personalities are still relevant to events happening today or indeed because of them)
I have not yet looked at the cartoons in this book but I know that-like the other political/editorial cartoon collections that I have-these, too, will be full of the cartoonists' humorous views of just about any subject.
This latest entry in this venerable series is one of the best--and the most inclusive, too.

Thankfully, it includes many more cartoons from foreign cartoonists. It's wonderful to enjoy an international cartooning perspective.
This book was very entertaining and a great collection of pollitical cartoons. Categorized so that the reader can look at various cartoons about a specific topic (such as the iPhone), this book was easily accessible. Sarcastic, humerous, and in some cases very true, (although not necessarily complete) this is indeed a great collection of some of the best cartoons of 2008's biggest issues.
This book is published once a year and gives the best editorial cartoons. There is only one negative point.. the lay-out is a bit unpleasant because sometimes there are to many cartoons on one page.. also some are published too small for no reason. Another thing .. mr Daryl Cagle puts his cartoons up front too much.. His are not always the best mind you.. But it is a very nice contribution to my editorial cartoons collection for sure..
