Anything associated with The Friar's Club is of high quality. Insightful, intelligent commentary and analysis. This book isn't really about mechanics or a how-to book at all, it's more about letting comics talk about their experiences and philosophies about humor and comedy. Found it to be pretty honest about its assessment, like that it had conflicting attitudes. Very enjoyable book.
