    Thoroughly enjoyable There’s a brief history of the New Yorker contest followed by a brief explanation of how it works and then you’re off—100 cartoons The book’s layout and rhythm create the fun First you find a cartoon with no caption; then turn the page and the cartoon is repeated with the winning caption plus several almost winners For variety there are occasional comments from finalists summarizing their personal experiences—how difficult it is to win and how impressed their friends were to know a winner The enjoyment is twofold—100 mostly humorous cartoons and the chance to match wits with the winners Let’s just say creating a caption is harder than it looks but that doesn’t detract from the fun

    The book is set up so the reader sees the uncaptioned cartoon may try thinking up their own captions and then turn the page to see the winning caption and runners up I personally would rather have seen twice as many captioned cartoons instead of the uncaptioned ones but the given format certainly captures the spirit of the contest well Occasional sidebars add comments about how language in captions differs from typical English and comments from a few winners The list of freuently used words with each cartoon on the other hand merely distracts I was impressed that the cartoons have not become dated over the last decade

    This is the funniest cartoon book I've read in a long time I read parts of it with my family We'd try to come up with captions before we read the winning ones I liked that the book included several winning captions so there was even silliness per cartoon My favorite was the one about the kids not respecting the law of gravity

    Hilarious I love how you can write your own captions before seeing the winner's It made me realize how hard it is I also like that the second and third place entries were there as well as two runner ups so that there were tons of laughs with each cartoon
