Actually I debated between giving this 4 or 5 stars. For my tastes, the unvarying focus on money is best apppreciated in smaller doses, but in the end, I think it's like buying a book of dog cartoons -- you need to *really* like dogs.

All the familiar New Yorker stalwarts are here, Peter Arno, Charles Addams and Whitney Darrow as well as contemporaries of theirs with which I was not as familiar, and the new generation of cartoonists currently appearing in the magazine.

The cartoons range from the 1920s to this year. On the whole, the most enjoyable era is the 1930s through the 1950s. The 20s are tentative as the artform is being developed, and the generational change in the 60s was not, in my opinion, an improvement.

This being the New Yorker, there is a long introductory essay, which I did not read -- I feel that cartoons either stand on their own or do not. On the whole these hold up quite well, though you may wish to read a few pages at a time.
