Despite the fact that the New York Times is not my favorite paper with its liberal bias, I am also a history buff, and I love old newspapers and magazines. So last Christmas I ran out and bought the 2008 edition. Although enjoyable, it was missing several months (including my daughters birth month of Septmeber 1994, to my disappointment), and trying to read many of the older issues was very difficult. I'm happy to report that the 2009 edition not only includes the missing months, but to my surprise many of the more difficult papers to read have somehow been "cleaned up". I don't know how they did it, but i just compared the Sept 24 1851 paper in the two editions and it's like night and day, much easier to read in the new edition. Also as in the old edition you can easily access the NYT archive to continue reading a front page article or read the articles in the other pages of that newspaper. A very nice feature. If you were disappointed with the 2008 edition, I would recommend getting this revised edition.

The new front pages from the New York Times is an invaluable research tool that you can use to research any NYT front page story ever. It's like having a U.S. history book done by the NYT. You can track presidential elections or see what happened day to day for any president back to Pierce. John Navarra Daytona Beach, Florida

The format for this book, The New York Times Front Pages through 2009 really belongs on a DVD Or CD-ROM format. Being able to increase OR decrease the size for a particular segment of the front pages make convenient, and dynamic the faces, photographs, and structures of our times, not to mention the ease of use, of not being force to lug a huge paperback around.

I gave this book to my father for Christmas. I just recently asked him if he was enjoying the book. His voice got higher and he said "Oh, yes! I am really liking this book."
