Andrew Heaton's savagely funny work on contemporary American democracy is a treasury of political satire. His regular sterling wit and pithy insights are combined with his own unique brand of cartoons, which, as he describes, "are about what I would have produced in my childhood, had I started drinking that early." He expertly wields his humor to tackle standard libertarian irritants, from indignity over needing a Segway license, to the spectacular failure of cupcake regulation, farm bills, the Drug War, and social intolerance. Heaton tackles his subjects with a fresh and upbeat attitude, as if Dave Barry were running for Congress. -- Last House Standing Books

Review:

Spencer Hicks, The Lost Ogle

"From the Monkey Cage is an amazing, funny work that ought to be required text book reading. After spending most all my time in state government, there were a lot of things I didn't know or realize about what happens up on The Hill--Andrew Heaton opened my eyes. I grew up in a conservative family, and after attending OBU I became a moderate liberal... now I'm a Heatontarian."
