By the Writers and Editors of MAD Magazine

Hardcover, 256 pages ($29.95 / Time Home Entertainment)

To celebrate its 61st rascally year, the irreverent humor magazine asked a host of celebrities (including Rosanne Barr, Ken Burns, Dane Cook, Ice-T, George Lopez, Jeff Probst and John Stamos) to ponder its zany influences on their lives, and also rounded up some of the best work from a host of its hall-of-fame cartoonists and writers (Sergio Aragonés, Jack Davis, Dick DeBartolo, Mort Drucker, Al Jaffee). It’s a treasure trove of “What, me worry?” rediscovery for anyone who ever snickered to MAD mascot Alfred E. Newman’s ever-changing world of skewered pop culture, politics, entertainment and public figures.
