Good value,good quality and a great laugh and makes an ideal gift.What more could you want?.

As a nervous flyer, I thought a joke book might be a calming distraction for the plane ride. While it was far from a panacea, it probably assuaged my trepidation by keeping me occupied. And even with my feet planted firmly on terra firma, the book is good for several guffaws.
For decades "Reader's Digest" has been nearly as beloved for its humorous anecdotes as its engaging stories. This compilation of tidbits from its long-running feature provides a great deal of wholesome laughter. As with the magazines other amusing columns, the vignettes provide abundant laughs without resorting to raffishness or ribaldry. Could that at least part of the reason why the magazine has maintained its longstanding popularity?

I have been looking for jokes for a while to release some of my stress. I think I got it. We all know that not all jokes are funny. But this book provides a lot of well selected jokes which in my opinion is clean and funny. I can't help laughing as I go through it in my spare time, after dinner, after kids go to sleep, mom is away... highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
This book contains several classic jokes, and some funny jokes I never heard before. It also contains some clunkers. I suspect that reading jokes is just not as laugh-packed as watching a top comic deliver the same jokes in person.

I purchased this book as a Christmas present for my dad who has dementia and is in a nursing home. He absolutely loves this book and, as a result, so do I. He derives great pleasure in reading jokes to his family, staff, and friends. He's always had a generous side and this gives him a way to give joy to other people. I know it does to me.

I'm one of those adults who still hasn't grown up yet. I love jokes! So many of the joke books out there are filled with terrible jokes that get more eye rolls than laughs. And many others rely on crude humor, which is not my thing. This book was a refreshing little gem with a bunch of good, clean, funny jokes that I can pick up now and then when I want a laugh. It's a small book but it packs a big punch.

You may want to note that the material is from Reader's Digest over the years so it's not necessarily current. For example: "Yesterday I got my tie stuck in the fax machine. Next thing I knew, I was in Los Angeles." Haha. Oh well.
