Overview

The influence, power, and occasional insanity of money in our lives. If money makes the world go 'round, why does it also wreck havoc with our personal worlds, spinning them up and down, topsy-turvy, even out of orbit? Money can make us feel happy, sad, elated, stressed, crazed, and a whole host of other emotions. Now, thanks to the brilliant cartoonists of "The New Yorker," money can also make us giggle, chuckle, chortle, snicker, and laugh our loud. And, we can better understand why money does all of the above. This delightful collection about money in our everyday lives features 110 classic cartoons from the cartoonists of "The New Yorker"--artists like Charles Addams, George Booth, Roz Chast, Peter Arno, and Gahan Wilson. The wit within its pages will tickle (and often inform) everyone in all walks of life. Christopher Buckley adds to the merriment with an introductory essay in his own inimitable and hilarious style.
