Meet the Author

Isaac Asimov began his Foundation series at the age of 21, not realizing that it would one day be considered a cornerstone of science fiction. During his legendary career, Asimov penned over 400 books on subjects ranging from science to Shakespeare to history, though he was most loved for his award-winning science fiction sagas. Asimov entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades, until he died, at the age of 72, in April 1992.

I have always enjoyed humorous jokes and stories, but have been a loss as to why some jokes work some of the time, and not others--this book explains the crafting of jokes, their construction, and delivery with examples. Contains some great jokes, not offensive. Have FUN!
