This is the first book of Jeeves stories ever published. P.G. Wodehouse is a classic British humorist (dead now, of course) who pokes fun at the idle rich and their culture, as well as setting up hysterical scenarios in which silly men have problems with women and/or money and seek help from friend Bertie Wooster's butler Jeeves. The results are inevitably hilarious. If you love humor, it - or another of the Bertie & Jeeves story books - is a must-read.

Another great work by Wodehouse,but that goes without saying.My reason for this review is to make you aware of "Bed Books".The pages of these books are printed sideways so that the book can be read more easily if you are lying down.It seems to be more of an incovenience than anything else.I purchased this book because of it's good price.If I had known what a "bed book" was, I would have selected a different book.

So glad to see this wonderful Overlook Press series. Good paper, nicely produced, good to add to my library of mostly classics. Wodehouse is a master; Bertie is surely at the top of the list of quintessential and lovable English characters. I read these stories in the 50s and 60s, and now can enjoy them again. They never grow old. You see, children, once upon a time humour was subtle ....
