Where the author lost me in a few places was on some of the British-specific humor, and there’s a good bit of that included. Having traveled widely (including trips to London), I did get a few of them like, “Do you want to buy my brewery off me? 100 grand, no vat.” But most Americans would have no clue what a Value Added Tax (VAT) was. Other jokes reference the British healthcare system (going private) and a number of “football” players who would also be unknown to those of us who consider “football” to be “grid iron”.
So basically, I definitely recommend this book to readers who understand British English and pop culture references. If your idea of international culture is Epcot, that’s probably not you….
And FYI – while “dad jokes” might appear in the title, this is NOT a family friendly joke book. While it’s not gross, there are definitely jokes based on sexual innuendos that you probably won’t want to have to explain to your kids. (For instance, “vajazzle”. If that one’s not already in your vocabulary, it’s one of those words that you Google and then go, “Oh, myyyy……)
My son is in his early teens, and I can guarantee that some of the jokes shall find their way into the lunch time shenanigans. Granted, even I found myself in cackles of laughter at times. And that's saying something. Trust me, it takes a bit to get me started.
Original, well executed, and bound to hit that comic chord in any who enjoy a good old chuckle - the clean way.
If you want a nice read to put a smile on your face without being utterly offensive-- then you found your book.

Perhaps a predominate influence is the stand up of Tim Vine as many of the jokes follow that dry, witty observation on the multi uses of words and phrases. So I would say if Tim Vine is your thing then this is definitely for you.If you prefer the crazed impulsive energetic ramblings of a Ross Noble its probably still for you. In short its got something for everyone including miserable gits like myself
Even though I didn't personally read it, I got to hear plenty of the jokes, through the chorus of, "Mum, mum - What did the....?", "Mum, mum - How did the...?" "Mum, mum - Did you hear about...?"
Plenty of funny, and cringe-worthy, jokes to keep you entertained for hours, and I mean hours! lol
I would certainly recommend this joke book.
I enjoy having this book on my kindle and have even shared one or two of the jokes with my friends. Very enjoyable!
