Good Days and Mad (Dick DeBartolo) - Thunder's Mouth Press - 1994

Mad writer, Dick DeBartolo combines his autobiography with a tribute to Mad founder William Gaines and an inside look at the Mad family.  Although not as elegant and comprehensive as Maria Reidelbach's Completely Mad (Little, Brown & Company - 1991), this book captures the real spirit and chemistry of the Mad staff and "usual gang of idiots" who have combined to create our most successful humor magazine, enduring forty years [now 54 years] of potrzebies, zeppelins and 45-day deadlines.
