    I thought I would find a book on why jokes are funny, interesting. This book was not interesting to me. I'm not sure whether that is due to the topic being less interesting than I thought it would be, or if it's due to the writer's style of writing. About half way through l gave up and just skimmed through to read the jokes. I enjoyed those!

    I recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun short read. It's great and makes numerous profound points and most importantly it's so well written and entertaining. It's also a great book for anyone who's interested in acquiring some skills in telling jokes and understanding what makes them funny. Thank you Mr. Cole for such an awesome book.
