**My Life in Jokes
by Bob Hope
with Linda Hope
June 17, 2003.
Hyperion, New York, 2003. 206 pages.
The idea behind this book seems perfectly appropriate for Bob Hope’s
100th birthday. Instead of a standard biography, this is a chronological
selection of jokes he’s used down through the years. I admit,
most of the jokes were probably funnier in the time for which they were
written. I found the ones most amusing that were actually written
in my lifetime (a minority). However, it’s a nice twist on the typical
autobiography, and seemed especially fitting in this case.
