This book brings together a well-chosen and quiveringly funny sample of [Coren's] comic writing . . . The humour in these columns isn't about one-liners and the best pieces take a fertile idea and run a mile with it, sparking a shower of bon mots in the process. (James Purdon Observer)
The field is led by Alan Coren. (Observer)
Coren's extraordinary gift for seeing the funny side of everyday life is in abundant evidence throughout this book, which will have you chuckling out loud. (Good Book Guide)

There are some of the Idi Amin pieces, which are interesting in that in these politically correct times they probably would not have been allowed in print.
Indeed the whole book carries a superb patina of the humour of his time, when it was inventively funny, as opposed to much of today's so-called humour, which is just rude or abusive commentary.
A gentle book from a funny gentleman.
