Oh dear! The book reads as if it were rushed into press as fast as possible, with every passable idea they came up with being thrown in to pad out the page length. It is nonsensical and incomprehensible at times, with many pages containing not so much jokes as what look like a drunkard's truncated musings.
Here's an example joke from the book to illustrate what I mean:
"It's a small world but I wouldn't want to paint it at a so-called living wage that is nothing of the sort."
The rest of the book is mostly GCSE-level prose written from the POV of every well-trodden "Leftie" stereotype you've ever seen. Expect to read the same jokes about berets and communes that you've been hearing since the 80s taken from cold storage and warmed up here to capitalise on Corbyn's surprise popularity. Even as a coffee table or "toilet" book, this makes for dull reading material.
This was pointed out to one of the authors who angrily threatened to sue people. When this only elided further laughter he got even more angry.
You could pick up a joke book from your local charity shop for a lot cheaper and would find it a funnier experience.
If you know someone who takes politics too seriously, or if you are fed up of nothing at all being a joke, then this is a must read. It's also a very annoying gift for people with no sense of humour.
I've bought 6 copies.
