Publisher's Summary

From the creators of the smash hit play comes the ultimate audiobook of Jewish humor, a hysterical guide to Judaism that explores all of the religion's stereotypes, history, and shameless guilt trips.

Critic Reviews

"The tone is light and farcical, the humor decidedly, but cleverly, lowbrow." (Publishers Weekly)

Fab!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn't get any better than "Phone calls from Jewish mothers." Please keep in mind that this is a book written by Jews for Jews, and some segments may offend extremely devout born-again Christians. This Christian, however, loved it and hopes to someday get a chance to see the Broadway show. (Skip through the truly infantile chapter regarding human excrement- proof that Brian and Sam didn't let their mothers read the first draft before sending it off to the publisher. The rest of the book is great.)

I was hoping for good or light hearted humor - NOT

I was really disapointed to say the least. I found it silly - dumb. Listening to a real bad comedy with little substance, and really poor material. Just not worth the time to listen and at some point I had to turn it off. It just wasn't funny or amusing to me. I would not recommend this to anyone, and not recommend it as a gift. I'd skip it. It was unfortunate, as I was really hoping for some good ol Jewish laughter. They were the only ones laughing, and I'm not sure what was so funny.
