Recommends it for: Fans of P.G.Wodehouse
This is a great overview of most all of Mr. Wodehouse works. A great reference edition.

This book rocked.

I simply love Wodehouse, and this was a perfect coffee table book on his writings. If you don't like Wodehouse, or if you've never read him, then you wouldn't enjoy this.

Erin gave this book to me for our first anniversary in 2005, and I've been slowly reading it since then. It sat on our coffee table, and I'd pick it up when I had 5 minutes here or there.

The best parts were the sections where Usborne lists numerous quotes on various topics from Wodehouse's novels. My favorite

Essential reference book for any Wodehouse fan

Excellent guide to the life and works of the great P.G. Wodehouse. An account of all the books, all the characters, and the background to the glorious world of Jeeves, Wooster, Lord Emsworth and all the other wonderful creations of this great man.
