Description

In 1974, Bob Mankoff began creating original cartoons and submitting them to magazines around New York City. In 1977, he sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker, and within three years he became a regular contributor to the magazine. In 1991, he started The Cartoon Bank, a business devoted to licensing cartoons for use in newsletters, textbooks, magazines, and other media.

You could have e-mailed your pick to me, but you couldn’t be bothered, and now you’ll have to put up with the darlings of others.

He is also a cartoonist, and more than 900 of his cartoons have been published in the magazine in the past thirty years, including the best-selling New Yorker cartoon of all time

This book seemed to include many of the same cartoon drawn differently

This unforgettable collection contains one hundred pages of cartoons, which, like a hole in one, will leave you smiling. This book seemed to include many of the same cartoon drawn differently. Many of them were by two or three artists, so it doesn't show a good range of the New Yorker's cartoonists. Skip this one in your reading. Fun. Not enough Mankoff.

More than likely, no, but hey, everyone loves to look at In The New Yorker Book of Business Cartoons, cartoonists such as Robert Mankoff, Lee Lorenz and Leo Cullum, show the worst and most unflattering depictions of business life. For the most part they hit the head on the nail.

Mark Twain called it "a good walk spoiled." Lee Trevino said it was the most fun he ever had with his clothes on. For duffers and pros alike, golf can be both a delight and a torment—often on the same day, sometimes on the same hole. How difficult can it be to take a stick and knock a small ball into a hole? In the obsessive examination of that question lie the joys and sorrows of many a dedicated player. (Is obsessive too strong? Just ask any avid golfer's friends or family.) So it is little wonder that golf has been the subject of numerous cartoons from The New Yorker cartoonists, including such luminaries as Charles Addams, Roz Chast, Whitney Darrow Jr., Edward Koren, George Price, and William Steig. Robert Mankoff, the cartoon editor of The New Yorker, has culled the decades' best, all exhibiting the focus, the passion—and the frequent absurdity—of the golfer's world. This unforgettable collection contains one hundred pages of cartoons, which, like a hole in one, will leave you smiling.

I'm a guy, laughed a lot, but was rather irked by the sexism. In this book, women are either ignorant of the sport, inept at it, or silly about it. Or their husband is leaving them or they are leaving their husband because of the sport. If this edition is "Revised and Updated" the previous one must have been really archaic.

At least to me, reviewing an anthology of cartoons resembles reviewing a performance by Marcel Marceau. Just as you really had to be there to see the performance to appreciate his talent, you really have to see the cartoons to appreciate their creators' talent. So, what to say now? First, that I am avid golfer and thus have a special interest in this volume, one of several in a series. Also, I am a long-time subscriber to The New Yorker and had already seen most of Robert Mankoff's selections as editor. I just wish I had aged as well as they have. Finally, if you love both golf (which is "flog" spelled backwards) and a good laugh, and no one else has as yet purchased The New Yorker Book of Golf Cartoons for you, don't begin dropping hints resembling anvils and then eagerly await the next birthday, anniversary, or holiday. Treat yourself to a copy TODAY. Amazon enables you to check out several of Robert Mankoff's selections as editor. Meanwhile, here's an excerpt from the dust jacket: "Mark Twain called it 'a good walk spoiled.' Lee Trevino said it was the most fun he ever had with his clothes on. For duffers and pros alike, golf can be both a delight and a torment -- often on the same day, sometimes on the same hole." Been there, done that. And, alas, will no doubt do so again...and again...and again. Fellow duffers, however badly you may play, you can count on this volume to entertain you later...and thereby help you to have the right perspective when you golf and/or flog your way through the next round.

I've probably become jaded, expecting all volumes of NEW YORKER cartoons to be wonderful. So this "specialty" edition -- like others -- came as a bit of a disappointment. Some "howlers" here, but they are few. Oh, well, even Superman has his bad days, when his cape turns a dull, dark crimson. Seen as he emerges from a bar.

The best bet in NEW YORKER cartoons comes in the "general" editions, of the "year -in-cartoons" ilk. They NEVER disappoint.

Love it, and you can read over and over and still love it!

I would much easily forgive the out-of-date jokes, with material more appropriate for the 50s if they were at least funny. This was more "Golf Digest" and not "New Yorker" quality.

Cartoons not up to The New Yorker standard. Disappointing.

A gift. Dad seemed to appreciate it and looks forward to some laughs.
Nice gift book - Gave this as a Christmas gift and it was a novel gift idea for a long-time golfer.
