I can't get enough of this book. It has truly put me in stitches. I chortle to myself as I walk down the street thinking about it; I talk about it non-stop. Kaplan has a unique, endlessly gratifying talent. His humor is brilliant and insurpassable, and his firm, knowing handle on the motives and foibles of today's humans is flabbergasting. I couldn't stop turning the page to see what he would deliver next! This book is like a little glowing gem.

This is a beautiful little book--one of those books that's so nice to hold, and such a joy to read. i always look for BEK's cartoons first when i get my new yorker every week, and i'm so excited to finally have a whole bunch of them collected in one place (and lots i've never seen before--has he been holding out on us?). He's so funny, and who knew he wrote for Seinfeld? Sheesh. I've been faxing my favorites to all my friends, and i even sent a copy of the book to my grandmother. I love it!

Oh, wow, this is the funniest book! Every one of these cartoons totally cracks me up--I was rolling on the floor. I can completely believe BEK used to write for Seinfeld--he's got that just-a-touch off-color sense of humor that is so deadpan and funny. I'm buying it for my brother (he could use a good laugh about now).

This book is so great. It's a beautiful thing, too, so nice to hold. When I get the New Yorker every week, I always look for the BEK cartoons first, and I'm so glad to have my own collection. It completely cracks me up--I keep faxing cartoons to my friends, and I even sent a copy of the book to my grandmother!
