"The world of books is rich with subjects for humor: self-published novels, meet-the-author events, self-help books, memoirs, book clubs. Thirty-three of the best cartoonists have their way with these and other literary-related topics in the new "The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons."...So, if you feel like taking a break from the book you're currently reading, pick up this volume and partake in a time-honored tradition - looking at the pictures."

"If you love books...then you'll get a kick out of this book....I love the various tropes covered in this book: rich authors and poor authors, popular trends in book publishing, people who love books, people who are books."
- GeekDad
"[I]t is already hands down the best cartoon collection about books. Every selection is a winner....Even the minutiae are handled refreshingly well. The book's index, for example, includes page numbers as well as brief capsule biographies of the artists. I don't think I've ever seen this done better anywhere."

"The Ultimate Cartoon Book of Book Cartoons edited by Bob Eckstein delivers on the title's promise by collecting cartoons about books, bookstores, reading, and writing that academics and literature lovers will adore. The deliciously witty single-panel cartoons are the work of 33 artists, most of them well known to readers of The New Yorker, where many of these cartoons were originally published."
