How to be a Jewish Mother A Very Lovely Training Manual. Illustrations by Gerry Gersten. Foreword by the Author’s Mother I just wanted to tell you that this book was written by my son who is a very capable young man. I haven’t actually read what he has to say here but I’m sure it’s very pleasant if he wrote it. You’d think that it wouldn’t be such a hardship on a young man who writes so nicely to write an occasional letter to his mother who loves him, but it seems there are more important things to a young man these days than his mother. All right, never mind.

This is about the funniest book I've ever read! This is my second edition of the book; the first one given to me upon the birth of my daughter 33 years ago. I purchased the "updated" version before my son got married recently. This newer version has all the original material but has updated topics like interfaith marriages, etc. One need not be a Jewish mother to appreciate the book (I am one), but it totally hits the mark - especially capturing the nuances of Jewish life of days gone by. I recognized my own mother in many of the passages in the book. When she visited my house recently, and picked up the book and started reading it, I'd never heard her laugh so hard. I finally had to give her the book!

I am not Jewish, but my wife is. And I am a lawyer, so many of my colleagues are Jewish. I stumbled upon this book in the sixties, when it first came out, and found it to be extremely funny. I then lost sight of my copy until my (Jewish) daughter became engaged to a goy, excuse me, a gentile, and I thought he needed a little early education about what he was getting into. I was able to track down a copy on Amazon (thank you, Amazon) and bought several. It is even more hilarious now than it was fifty years ago, and my son-in-law-to- be is now fully educated on what lies in store for him.

This book is a hoot! The opening premise of the book states that one does not necessarily need to be Jewish, or even a mother to be a "Jewish Mother." It is a frame of mind. Whether one is a genuine Jewish Mother or a goy boy like me this book will be supremely amusing for you.

I first read this book when I was a kid babysitting for a neighbor. I didn't know anything about Jewish culture (I didn't even understand that the family I was babysitting for was Jewish), but I thought the book was really funny. Now that I am an adult, it rings even more true. It is organized like a manuel, with funny illustrations. The back cover has a photo of the author that pretty much sums it up: There he is in photo number 1: a toddler in a high chair, his mom spooning something in his mouth. Photo #2: There he is, a grown man, obviously the same mom, and she is still spoooning something in his mouth. He knows what he is talking about. Very funny stuff.

There were some additions to the original version. But, if I remember correctly some items from the original version were eliminated.

Good service from seller(that's why five stars) Book isn't as funny As I remember When i first read it in 1970. Now the funniest thing is the title.

This book was a big hit back in the 1960's. It was fun revisiting it now, decades later. Still a good time read.
The vendor sent us this nice, little book in great quality and in such timely manner. There was even a small box framing the book for protection, which I was able to use for my own gift wrapping of the book!
