Customer Review

on March 4, 2007
This is the hands down best way to do a biography that I have ever seen. It's at least 90% pictures, maybe 95%. The words tell us just a bit about his personal history, but the pictures - drawings really of his editorial cartoons -- tell us more about his beliefs, thoughts, the inner person he is than anything words could possibly say.

This is not to say that the words aren't well done. I particularily like the story of going for his Army physical. He was 4-F because of vision problems. So a Major took him for an eye test: 'Conrad, what's the top line on that eye chart? 'E' 'You're in.' In the Army he made it all the way up to PFC, several times. Anyone with the view of authority figures that he has was lucky to make it that far. But that's the view that made him such a great political cartoonist.

Do I agree with him on all points, of course not. What would be the fun in that? But even in the areas where we disagree, he's still funny.
