Tom Tomorrow helps us survive in This Modern World with his unique political satire. You'll laugh, you'll groan, you'll be enraged at the madness of our times. Buy this book and see the light!

Irony, sarcasm, satire - it's all here. I can think of so many people who ought to read this book.

Thanks Tom Tomorrow for a nice piece of work; much appreciated. With all the s*** that is going on right now, it's nice to know that I/we aren't alone in thinking that, yes, the world is going to "Hell in a Handbasket". I can barely stomach the nightly news or paper anymore, and it's been that way for quite some time. The laughs this book gave me lifted my spirits and made me feel like maybe I wasn't quite so alone. Everyone with a brain AND heart should read this book.

The book is hilarious and Tom Tomorrow has had his wonderfully sardonic finger on the pulse of the Bush administration and its cronies and helpmeets from the beginning. He's a rare laugh in these bleak times. Highly recommended.

heh I've always loved Tom Tomorrow's comics and this latest installment does NOT disappoint. Of course, this current adminstration gives him SO much material to work with, maybe we could use part of the revenues to pay down the national debt =P Whaddya say Dan?

Tom Tomorrow is one of the most underappreciated satirists of our time. For years now he has taken devastating aim at the often shocking amorality of the people in power, as well as the pundits and toadies who spin the government's agenda. He does it with quick wit, a sharp eye, and a refreshing sense of honest outrage.

You won't see his work in your local paper, however. It's far too biting for the mainstream McMedia. Therefore Tomorrow has always been relegated to the alternative press, and while there's nothing wrong with that, it's preaching to the choir most of the time.

Buy this book and put it where people will see it, especially people who think the current administration is doing a "kind of OK job." It will stimulate discussion and it will give you some laughs, which is definitely a good deal for the money.

I love this book! Tom Tomorrow has an uncanny ability to skewer our media and our administration with almost surgical precision. He uses his ability to see the absurdity in what is going on around us (paired with his intelligence, wit and a great sense of humor) to come up with panels that make you laugh, even when you should be outraged.

Looking back over the events depicted in this book, it is also interesting to see how many of his "predictions" have come true.

If you have never heard of Tom Tomorrow, then you owe it to yourself to buy this book!
