Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm Jewish. My boyfriend isn't. So I thought this book would be an ideal way for him to understand me a little better. Me and my myriad neuroses. We took it on holiday with us and laughed and laughed and laughed. "I understand you a lot better now," he said by the end of it. If you're Jewish or not, or know someone who is or are friends with someone who is, do buy this book. You will love it. It's one of the funniest books I've ever read. My favourite line is about how most Jewish ceremonies are centred on food and our enemies trying to eliminate us: "They tried to kill us. They failed. Let's eat." BUY THIS BOOK!!!

Most Consistently Laugh-Out-Loud-Funny Book I've Read in Years 10 July 2011
By Kent Ponder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My God, I can't believe how few reviews are here for this jewel of a book. Too much praise, there isn't. Such a nice book and, feh!, how should we understand so few people who would take a minute to write a thank-you note? Is this too much I am asking? Really, how much is it to ask? In only about an hour I finished it. Is that so long to spend? So sit down and thank Molly for this gift. Your mother didn't teach you? Maybe by now you even forgot the name of your rabbi? And Hebrew school I don't even mention!

Though it gets a little repetitious in some respects, this consistently witty book rings true in virtually every sentence. (I used to supervise instruction of Israeli Hebrew and I have a Jewish son-in-law, so pay attention to what I'm telling. Half-heartedly joking, I am. Seriously joking, I'm not.) Buy this book. Today wouldn't be too soon IfGodwilling. You're already on Amazon, don't say you're not. So how far away could be the buying button for this book? Am I right? You know I'm right. So do it and feel good about it.

Sassy and entertaining 23 July 2010
By M.Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My boyfriend is Jewish and I'm his shiksa. :) You can't take this book too seriously, because while it is rather true on most accounts, it's also satirical in other ways. He found it to be rather entertaining, and so did I! It is informative too, especially for your everyday Yiddish and terminology in Jewish culture. Small enough to fit in your purse and read at your leisure!

Laughingly True 29 April 2011
By Loren Capsopoulos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was such a FUN book. Small, easy to read, packed with truth disguised as humor. I was able to identify several relatives immediately - even myself. Such a wonderful little jewel. Highly recommended for Jewish readers and non-Jews alike.

Famliar Terrain ..but a Fresh and Funny Take 23 July 2013
By Dale R. B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I said if one laugh is worth ten minutes rowing, I got from New York to Nantucket on this book. I give it as gifts all the time. Molly Katz's approach is consistently clever and quotable; you'll want to share it by reading it aloud.
