Reading the official blurb on the book, I expected this book to not only have jokes, but also teach me how to tell them better. This area did dissapoint a little. The book does have random comments and tips from experts on how to tell better jokes, but most of the 'teachings' are just common sense - eg. don't tell a joke if you don't remember the punch line, & don't laugh at your own jokes harder than other people do.
Buy the book if you want a laugh or something witty to throw into everyday conversation. Don't buy it to learn the art of the standup commedian.
All in all, a great joke book for it's price.
