Reviews

"An irreverent take on Jewish life, culture, and lore. No topic is off limits.... This is another zany book for Jews and those who love them." --Kirkus Reviews

"They're back again! However you say 'three amigos' in Yiddish, that's exactly what they are. They are like as wheatgrass shot of Jewish culture. If I was having a Bar Mitzvah, I would want to recite lines from this book. Everything I read from these three gives me Jewish envy. I laughed til I plotzed. Did I use that correctly?" --W. Kamau Bell, goyish comedian
