Is This Anything? by Jerry Seinfeld

I was thrilled when I saw that Jerry Seinfeld was writing a book. I have followed his career for a while and I just love his simple take on life. When I discovered his book was just a compilation of jokes, I was not enthused. One, I have read plenty of books by comedians, and for the most part, standup routines do not translate to the written word very well. Two, why would I want to buy a book of old jokes I have already heard? Thus when I got the book as a gift, I was excited yet apprehensive.

So, how do I describe Seinfeld’s book succinctly? This is the funniest book I have read. Ever.

I have never had to pause reading a book before because I was laughing too hard until I read this book.

I don’t know what it is about Seinfeld’s humor that I find hilarious, but I do. It may be the mundane subjects or his casual cadence, but in the end, it is just funny. Yes, there were a lot of jokes I have already heard, but I still laughed my head off.

Reading this book was a great way to start off a new year.
