Think of this as Isaac Asimov's humorous way of thinking circa 1960-1970. If you're an Asimov fan, this will appeal to you in revealing his thinking process in the area of humor. If you're old enough, or educated enough (or both!) then more of the jokes will be understandable and funny to you.
It is not a joke book. Very few of these jokes would go over today.
I had the distinct honor of attending dinner with Dr. Asimov in the late 70's, and heard some of his tales then - topical, like in the book, and tailored for the audience (MIT students). I think of this book in that vein.
