I've always loved the utter chaos that exists in this artists creations, the one with a man trying to read the paper while his wife annoys him with her outlandish suggestions is one situation, there are many more. But when I recently bought the "Complete New Yorker" on a hard drive, I was driven to buy two of his cartoon books, this being one of them. To my dismay, there was too much duplication between the two books, why this was allowed to happen I cannot fathom, for I won't buy another collection before I have a good look at what's covered in the new desired volume. My advice, buy one, sight unseen, buy the next one after you've looked at it. A great artist, in any event.

Booth revels in junk in yards, more than too many cats in houses, unpedigree'd dogs, singers in bathtubs, disheveled housewives, dangling single-lightbulbroom chandeliers, all with ambient love of his cartoons, all with a simple-life's familiarity to his cartoon viewers, all with rich hilarity. The humor in the book's pages will warm your coffee, steep your tea, lightly spice and spike your soft drinks, and generally improve your outlook and day. Decades of cartoons are here. Decades of enjoyment to come are also here, too, I suspect. -- Here's to you, Mister Booth: You make me smile, laugh, and even occasionally want to whistle, like a happier dumb bastard!

My family enjoyed these very charming and witty cartoons. The book contains an excellent collection of the famous Booth drawings.

George Booth's cartoons, often seen in the New Yorker, are collected wonderfully in this book. He has lots of hilarious things to say about dogs, automechanics, banking and living on the edge. Everyone in my family who read this laughed and laughed.
