Great humor & every cartoon is hilarious. Love it!
you can't sell someone on gary larson's work. you know it and you either like it or not. what i can tell you is that this book delivers, believe me, it does not disapoint. it's put together well, really beautiful, with several pages in a vibrant full color. robin williams (who seems to fit the part of a far side fan) writes an uninspired introduction, but then we get this for larson not williams.
