I had heard S.J. Perelman's name so often that I was interested to see how he wrote. Unfortunately, this book was so boring that I couldn't even read it, and it wasn't because of the topic, but because of the writing style, the contrived descriptions, and weak attempts at humor.

I have seen other reviewers on Amazon say that they loved it and laughed out loud, and this is a reminder that everyone's experience with humor and writing is subjective.

I didn't like it at all; you'll have to judge for yourself.
