    Isaac Asimov's Treasury of Humor

    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!
