    Review quote
    "It's a measure of how funny he [Cooper] was that this book had me on the floor even when reading about gags I've never seen." Sunday Times "Tommy Cooper's Secret Joke Files also includes a fascinating look at the painstaking process Tommy Cooper used to catalogue and index his material, and the fine tuning that turned an original thought, written down as a few random lines, into a brilliant one-liner. The perfect Christmas present and highly recommended" Magic Week "This alphabetical compilation of the sublimely silly Cooper's best jokes will keep the entire family in stitches" Saga "More festive smiles are guaranteed" Choice
