I picked up this book and opened it at random and burst out laughing after reading the first story. Then I read page after page of some of the most amusing and original jokes I've come across in a long time. Some are chuckles, some are groans and some make you laugh so hard your belly aches. You will not be disappointed with this collection.

There is a certain monotony in reading and telling jokes. You laugh once, you laugh twice, and then you know you are going to laugh and somewhow stop laughing. So this means 'jokebooks' are best not read at a single sitting. They are best picked up for a moment when you have the time to give a moment and are looking for a bit of distraction.
I sampled the jokes of this book and I found myself, if not laughing, then smiling appreciatively at each one of them. The ones I read were not stupid, crude cruel jokes but rather mild self- deriding Jewish jokes.
I intend to read a lot more of them.
I think that anyone who wants a bit more amusement and laughter in their lives would do well to purchase this volume.

I bought this for my brother, who annoys everyone by insisting on reading some of the jokes aloud.He brought it to me when I was in hospital recently and I must admit that it cheered me up no end. No-one makes fun of Jews and Judaism like the Jews.What is so funny about many of the jokes is that they are actually true to life.

My favourite (by no means accurate wording) Four Jewish women are having coffee and comparing notes.
Sadie says, "My Myron's a doctor and earns $200,000 a year." "My David's a lawyer," says Hetty, "and earns $300,000 a year." "Lewis is in business," says Esther, "and earns over $400,000 a year."

"What does your son do Leah?"asked Sadie. "Oh my son's a rabbi," came the reply. Sadie and co. were appalled."What kind of a job is that for a good Jewish boy?"

Droll humour is always fun so this book is likable.

As is always the case with books of jokes, some appeal to the reader and others do not. Inevitably, therefore, this book can be a hit and miss affair. Be that as it may, there's a lot here to make you smile and every now then, a laugh-out-loud contribution. My advice: to get the best out of it, dip into it in small visits.

The book has a good contents section, and the jokes are arranged by theme. So if you want to find something witty for the speech / event / meeting coming up, there should be something here to help you.

A large compilation, well organised. Good fun. Worth owning.

Just got this two days ago and am enjoying dipping in to it.
The jokes are divided into a number of categories ranging from 'Early Years' & 'Family Events' to 'Travel & Technology' and 'Final Years.' There is also a
number of 'extras' which include a Glossary of Yiddish and Hebrew Terms which is helpful to us 'goyims.'
Some of the jokes are classic non-Jewish jokes which have been given a Jewish flavor but I have no problems with that. There are no Arab or
Middle Eastern jokes (pity) as the author has tried to be scrupulously fair.
More than 400 pages of laughs so 'never mind the quality, feel the width!

An excellent book, most enjoyable, although many of the jokes didn't seem particularly confined merely to the Jewish community and would have worked equally well if attributed to another group.

Very nicely put together, in categories that make it easy to scoot around. A real hoot. Something to dip in and out of.

Thanks

I love Jewish humour!! I was surprised that it doesn't translate so well to the written word. Still, it is a great book to dip into and raise a smile. You really can't beat 'listening' to a good joke...

Most of the puns and jokes have a Jewish turn, not all. It's really a good job of compilation. Funny, sometimes hilarious, a good start for the author
