Where was this book when we moved to New Yawk in 1993?

Hopeful rubes from Ohio, our hapless goyim brains got lost in a sea of incomprehensible utterances—schmuck! shmutz!¬†shlemiel! shicksa! schtick! schmaltz! shvantz!

So many of the books listed on this blog are good for nothing but laughs. We mock them, then we pitch them in the recycling bin.

Naiman’s Every Goy’s Guide is both funny and a keeper.
