Reviews

Praise for Larry Gonick:
"Larry Gonick should get an Oscar for humor and a Pulitzer for history."
--Richard Saul Wurman, author and creator of the TED conference Praise for Larry Gonick's The Cartoon History of the Universe
"A curious hybrid, at once flippant and scholarly, witty and politically correct, zany and traditionalist."
--Jonathan Spence, The New York Times Book Review Praise for Larry Gonick's The Cartoon History of the United States
"A perfect gift for that teenager who simply can't get American history straight."
--San Francisco Chronicle Praise for Larry Gonick's The Cartoon Guide to Sex

"The humor is both fundamental and sophisticated, so even the most sexually seasoned will find something to laugh about."
--Publishers Weekly
Praise for Hypercapitalism
"A great introduction to the current state of the economy and what can be done about it, and a solid addition for Gonick's many fans."
--Library Journal

"This book explains much about how the world works, and why it increasingly doesn't. Read it soon, before we lose any more ice caps."
--Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Deep Economy "Like fish who don't know they live in polluted water (because it's everywhere), many people don't know they live in economically, socially, and politically polluted societies. Hypercapitalism, in lucid prose and delightful graphics, pulls back the curtain with crystal clarity. I can't think of a better book for young people to read as they chart their futures."
--Barry Schwartz, author of The Costs of Living, The Paradox of Choice, and Why We Work "A clear and concise description of how the market economy functions, why it encourages the worst aspects of human nature, and how we can cope in an age of excess."
--John Gowdy, Professor of Economics and Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute "A truly unique, page-turning graphical account . . . Gonick and Kasser pull off the monumental feat of rendering an otherwise dry and complex social-economic topic as clear, entertaining, informative, and even hilarious in spots. Hypercapitalism is a remarkable, essential and hopeful book for our times. To embrace and act upon its message is to live better."
--Nomi Prins, author of All the Presidents' Bankers and It Takes a Pillage Praise for Larry Gonick's The Cartoon History of the Universe
