As a cartoonist for a small town newspaper somewhere in the mountians of California, every year I purchase: "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year".

The 2008 edition is aother outstanding volume, and full of wonderful political insight from the year 2007. This series spotlights the best of the best, and they are here: Walt Handelsman, Jimmy Margulies, Mike Peters and Dick Locher. Over 100 other great cartoonists are featured in the pages of this book, and I cannot recommend this series highly enough. This is the Bible of the very best political cartoons of the year, and it is as entertaining as it is educational.

Subjects included in this 2008 edition include: The Presidential Campaign, The Bush Administration, The Economy, Crime and Entertainment. From Dick Cheeney to Britney Spears, nobody is safe from the wrath of these cartoonists. The Iraq War, gas prices and immigration are all under attack in the pages of this book.

From 1972 to 2008; "The Best Editorial Cartoons Of The Year" are THE books on this subject. And if: "The Daily Show" is must-see viewing in your home, this book belongs on your bookshelf as well.

Since the 1980's I have purchased this book. Each year I find it rewarding. I am disturbed at the fact that too many papers do not have regular cartoonists. They are valuable and needed. There is indeed humor, as this collection so well shows, in the foibles of our political life. If you don't have it, buy it. Better still, try to get your library to get this and past issues. It is a valuable resource.

I have collected this book for a long time and enjoy the editorial cartoons of the year. These cartoons are able to give a message without much space and it is a time machine later when remembering the past.

The best editorial cartoons. While most editorial cartoons are liberal, the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year series presents a more balanced compilation of the political and topical editorial cartooning.

Not as satisfying as some of the earlier yearbooks in this series but that may represent a less engaging selection of cartoons and events available to include. Covers a generally broad spectrum so expect cartoons you say "right on" to and others than you find yourself wanting to tear up. Fun to remember some of the events of the year that stirred such passions (and may still do).

I get these each year for my boyfriend. He loves the news and these editorial cartoons keep him laughing all year. So far we have collected 5 of them and I plan to get one each year for the rest of our lives. Thanks for making this book!

I have almost all editions collected by Charles Brooks since 1990, and this is an excellent supplement. As before, the presentation is a diverse combination of the very best in editoral cartoons. This book presents a genuine self-examination of not only US politics but all aspects of life on Earth.

This is the best of this highly likeable series IMO. It was hilarious, and exposed all of the important 2012 "Election Year" & more activities . There was a lot to make fun of in 2012, and these Cartoonists did not miss a thing. I have it stored close bye, because I am going to read & enjoy it again - at least one more time.

If you want to know what really happened in 2012, look no farther. You won't be disappointed. Highest recommendation.
