The New Joys of Yiddish: Completely Updated

The New Joys of Yiddish: Completely Updated - Leo Rosten, R.O. Blechman, Lawrence Bush The New Joys of Yiddish is a terrific reference and a really fun book to sit down and read. It's filled with folklore, jokes, stories and comics as well as really useful pronounciation guidelines. I don't think I would ever try to use the words here but it helps me understand Jewish literature a little better and it's a great place to look up new words.
