Does not justify its cost.

It is also a very small book and takes mere minutes to go through the entire book.

This was a wonderful gift for the dog lovers in our family.

Format: Paperback
Before discussing the cartoons (which are wonderful), let me warn you against the miniature paperback version. It is very small, the cartoons are hard to see, you need a magnifying glass for some, the reproduction quality is poor, and the paper is not good. Stick with the hardcover.
I have rated the book as the hardcover version. The only drawback I saw to the 101 cartoons was the lack of a witty introduction (like those in the cartoon books of the New Yorker for business and money).
In a spirit of self-disclosure, I must admit that I do not have a dog now . . . but I have had one in the past. Several of my friends have dogs, so I think I can properly evaluate the book from a dog lover's point of view.
The relationship between human and dog is an especially close one. The humor works well when it alludes to that. For example, in a wordless cartoon, a dog looks resentfully at a man reading a book entitled "How To Be Your Own Best Friend." Another one has a couple in bed with lots of dogs: "If you lie down with pugs, you wake up with pugs." In a third, a woman with two suitcases is seen leaving with the dog while a man inquires of the dog: "Et tu, Baxter?"
Dog-human reversals also work: A dog doctor examines a human and notes, "Well, your nose feels cold."
Sometimes the humor is aimed at the human, such as: A psychic tells a dog her/his fortune, "You will be going for a long walk."
Inevitably cats are part of the picture: Two dogs talking to each other spot a cat walking down the side walk, "Do you want to handle this, or should I?

I could barely put it down, I just wanted to read "one more cartoon". Dog lovers like me would like it the most, but anyone would love it. My 11 year old daughter read it and liked it too!

I remember seeing this book shortly after it was first published, and the cartoons were shown considerably larger than they orginally appeared in the New Yorker, with ample margins. This is literally a pocket-sized book; the cartoons are smaller than they originally appeared and the margins are so narrow that it's hard to hold it open without your thumbs blocking some of the image. Still, the cartoons are first rate, and from the standpoint of a dog and cartoon lover, better small than not at all.

While the cartoons themselves are priceless, the size of the book is ridiculous, VERY small and difficult to read.Book measures about 4"X3", waste of money, if I had known how small, I wouldn't have bought it.

Beware! It is not clear in the description that this is a teeny tiny book. $10 for 4 inches? Ridiculous! What was going to be a gift is now a stocking stuffer. First time I've ever been burned by Amazon.

the cartoons were so small that the text could not be read. It didn't occur to me that I had to check the size of a book.

If you love the humor of New Yorker cartoons, and you love dogs, this is a no-brainer; it's wonderful. They also make a calendar of dog cartoons, which I get every year. Sophisticated humor, sometimes a little dry, sometimes a little racy, guaranteed to make you laugh out loud if dog culture is your culture.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As always, The New Yorker publishes terrific collections of the cartoons from years past. This collection is just as meaningful, along with the Book of Cat Cartoons. And though both collections are extensive and hilarious, the printing quality from page to page can vary from good to not so good. The books themselves are also about the size of a CD jewel case. Pretty small for a $10 book printed in black and white, with the exception of the covers. But if you are a long-standing reader of The New Yorker as I am (more than 40 years now), you can forgive the rather steep price and simply enjoy the content. And since I have been clipping and collecting New Yorker cartoons for decades, I am always pleased to find a more concise and orderly collection.
