This delightful, reality based strip has set new standards in cartoons. The Patterson bunch contend with every day issues that all readers can identify with, such as a new pet, making time for romantic interludes and running interference for the children. It is a wonderful strip that has brought many smiles to many faces for many years and we hope, many more. Let's keep up more of those days.

I've allways caonsidered "For Better or For worse my favorite cartoon, and this book is one of my favorites. The sibling rivalry, chaotic family reunions and the crazieness of getting a puppy are just some of the things that make this collection a good book. I would recomend it.

For Better or For Worse is like a fine wine, it has gotten better in time! This book was hiliarious, but the drawing style was very rough compared to Johnston's current style. I thought it was a good book, and would recommend it highly to die hard fans.
