Inside are the tales told by everyone from Pope John XXIII to Groucho Marx, John F. Kennedy to Yogi Berra, Albert Einstein to John Lennon. With about two hundred lively bits of humor, accompanied by dozens of Al Kilgore’s great caricatures, there’s a laugh any time you need one.Bill Adler was a genius of the book field, creating best sellers ranging from The Kennedy Wit to Who Killed the Robbins Family?
